The Vikings on Wednesday agreed to terms with free agents Tajae Sharpe and Anthony Zettel.

Sharpe is a wide receiver, who spent the last four years with the Titans.


Zettel has bounced around since a very productive year for the Lions in 2017.

Sources tell KSTP that both deals are for one year.

Sharpe appeared in 15 games for the Titans last season, amassing 431 snaps, a career low.

He has appeared in 47 games with 29 starts since Tennessee selected him in the 5th round of the 2016 draft and has 92 receptions for 1,167 yards and eight touchdowns.

Zettel started all 16 games for Detroit in 2017 and had 6 1/2 sacks. He's played in 25 games since then without any sacks. He finished last season with San Francisco, appearing in all three playoff games, including the win over the Vikings.
