When you’re the third-leading receiver on your team and your employer hires the best receiver in the draft–a guy who set the FBS-record for career receiving yards with 5,285–your job is anything but secure. Oh, and just to drive that point home, your bosses also brought on another receiver in Western Kentucky’s Taywan Taylor with their third-round pick.

Gotta be pretty unsettling. But unsettling enough to knock a stranger unconscious for 12 hours? You be the judge.

Titans’ wideout  Tajae Sharpe is reportedly being sued by someone he allegedly knocked out after the Titans made their pick during the first round of the NFL Draft on April 27.

CBS Sports reports that the lawsuit claims Sharpe left the man with “broken bones in his face, a concussion, massive face bruising, a perforated eardrum and other injuries” in an alley next to a bar in Nashville.

Dante Satterfield, the alleged victim, claims Sharpe became unhinged after Satterfield made comments to him following the Corey Davis pick. That’s when he claims Sharpe and Titans’ teammate Sebastian 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.

Tretola allegedly served as the lookout man for the assault that would leave several broken bones in Satterfield’s face and leave him unconscious for roughly 12 HOURS.

Satterfield is seeking damages of at least $500,000. Both Sharpe and Tretola are named in the suit.

Welp Tarjae, if a pending lawsuit wasn’t enough to deem you expendable, Corey Davis may finish the job.
