Tajae' Sharpe and Sebastian Tretola filed a counterclaim Friday against Dante Satterfield, who alleged that the Tennessee Titans wide receiver beat him unconscious outside a Nashville bar in April while the 25-year-old offensive lineman served as a lookout.
According to WKRN, Sharpe and Tretola in the countersuit admitted to "roughing up" Satterfield but said they did so in self-defense after he allegedly followed them around the bar and threatened them.
"Sharpe admits to punching Satterfield in self-defense, and Tretola admits to body-checking him against a brick wall when he continued to harass them," per WKRN.
Satterfield is reportedly seeking $500,000 in damages. He said he suffered a concussion, broken bones in his face, massive facial bruising, a perforated ear drum and other injuries.
