Jim Wyatt of Titans Online reported that Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota and wide receiver Tajae Sharpe have been working out in Los Angeles, California. The two teammates had been communicating back and forth and finally opted to get together.
Since Tuesday (March 6) the two have been working together for many hours, fine tuning their games. Mariota has been practicing distributing the ball to Sharpe while Sharpe has been practicing running routes and catching the ball.
The two players will conclude their workouts Friday (March 9).
Last year Mariota did not have the liberty to work out this early in the offseason due to his fractured fibula and is taking advantage of the opportunity.
Sharpe is using the workout to shake off the cobwebs and rebound after missing the 2017 season with a foot injury. He had an impressive rookie campaign in 2016 where he caught 41 balls for 522 yards and two touchdowns.
Titans General Manager Jon Robinson is taking note of the strides that Sharpe is taking in preparation for a comeback year in 2018. Wyatt reported that during the NFL combine Robinson was asked about Sharpe and Robinson raved about his commitment and progress.
“Unfortunate that he had the injury and missed last year, he had a pretty successful rookie season. We’re looking forward to getting him back out there,” he said. “I know he is working hard. He was in there lifting and trying to get stronger.”
