Chiefs trading L’Jarius Sneed to AFC team

The Kansas City Chiefs are trading star cornerback L’Jarius Sneed after all.

The Chiefs are said to be finalizing a deal that would send Sneed to the Tennessee Titans, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Kansas City will reportedly receive a 2025 third-round pick and a 2024 seventh-round pick swap in return. The trade also provides the Chiefs with almost $20 million in salary cap relief.

The deal comes after a reported trade with the Titans had fallen through just hours prior. Sneed and the Titans had been unable to agree on a long-term extension. That issue appears to have been remedied as Sneed is also expected to sign a new contract with Tennessee.

The Chiefs used the franchise tag on Sneed earlier this month with the initial hope of signing him to a long-term extension. But given how far apart the two sides were on a new pact, a trade became imminent.

Despite not making a single All-Pro or Pro Bowl team just yet, Sneed is considered by many to be one of the best cornerbacks in the league. The 27-year-old was one of the anchors of the Chiefs’ vaunted defense last season and played a pivotal part in their last two Super Bowl runs.

Sneed’s 78 combined tackles tied for third on the Chiefs in 2023. He also led the team with two interceptions.
