According to the NFL Players Association, the average career length of a footballer is 3.3 years, so it’s understandable why some players may be nervous about their job security. It’s especially understandable to be nervous as a 2016 fifth-rounder who just watched his team invest the No. 5 overall pick and a third-rounder into guys that play the same position as you. What isn’t understandable, however, is knocking some dude out cold for 12 hours as a result of your own insecurities, j’ah feel?
Such is the case for Tennessee Titans second-year wideout Tajae Sharpe, the third-leading receiver on the team last year, who just saw the Titans select FBS record-setter Corey Davis and Western Kentucky’s Taywan Taylor in the 2017 NFL Draft. CBS Sports reports that Sharpe is being sued by Dante Satterfield, who claims Sharpe went bonkers after Satterfield tried to discuss Tennessee’s selections with hp during the draft. According to the alleged victim, Sharpe and Titans’ teammate Sebastion Tretola asked him to meet them outside the back door of the bar.
“As soon as I walked out of the back of Tin Roof, that’s when I get punched to the face,” Satterfield told The Tennessean.
If Satterfield’s story is to be believed, Tretola served as the lookout man for the assault that left him with “broken bones in his face, a concussion, massive face bruising, a perforated eardrum and other injuries.” Satterfield also claims he was knocked unconscious for 12 hours.
Again, this a complete stranger to Sharpe who, at worst, talked a little bit of trash about some draft picks who haven’t even played yet. Sharpe, buddy, CALM THE F— DOWN.
Satterfield is seeking damages of at least $500,00 and has named both Sharpe and Tretola in his lawsuit.
Even if these allegations prove to be BS, Sharpe may still find himself out of a job because Davis can do stuff like this.
