One receiver is gone, another added to the mix.

The Kansas City Chiefs are signing wide receiver Tajae Sharpe to their practice squad, as first reported by Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport added that “a possible late-season or playoff elevation” might be in store for Sharpe “when he learns the playbook.”

Sharpe, 25, first entered the league as a fifth-round pick made by the Tennessee Titans in the 2016 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-2, 192-pound receiver spent the first four years of his career (2016-19) with the Titans, though he lost the 2017 season due to a stress fracture in his foot.

In three seasons on the field for Tennessee, Sharpe had 92 catches for 1,167 yards and eight touchdowns. He was targeted once in the AFC title game against the Chiefs but did not register a catch.

A free agent after the Titans declined to bring him back, Sharpe latched on with the Minnesota Vikings, but he only saw 28 offensive snaps in four games active. The Vikings waived Sharpe on Tuesday.
