The countdown to training camp is on. As we pass through the dog days of summer we are also counting down the Chicago Bears roster to see which players are the most valuable heading into the 2022 season.

We have marched down to number 41 on our roster ranking for the season.

Chicago Bears 2022 roster ranking: No. 41 Tajae Sharpe

Tajae Sharpe has been bouncing around the NFL for a while now. On most teams, he would be a lot lower, but he is not only a player that could make the team but one that is going to be competing for targets this season.

Last season Sharpe was with the Atlanta Falcons and caught 25 passes for 230 yards on 37 targets. He was on the Vikings in 2020, but being a later signing, and having no chance to gain momentum during practices, he did not catch on.

His first three seasons were with the Tennessee Titans, the team that drafted him. The best of Sharpe was arguably his rookie season. The receiver room was bare, so the rookie fifth-round pick was able to get on the field early.

When the depth chart filled out in the coming years you saw less of Sharpe, although he managed to grab 300 yards in every season.

In every year but 2020, he has been able to get onto the field and become a trusted piece of the core at times. It is very possible that he could find a similar role or more.

At the same time, the Chicago Bears added a lot of names similar to Sharpe, so some players who are used to making the roster on the back end may get cut from Chicago just due to depth. The Bears do not have the talent, but the competition at wide receivers 2-5 will be intense. Will Sharpe be one of those guys that is on the outside looking in?
