REPORT: Chiefs to trade DB L’Jarius Sneed to Titans

The L’Jarius Sneed era with the Kansas City Chiefs appears to have ended. According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Chiefs have agreed to trade the veteran cornerback to the Tennessee Titans.

The deal was announced late Friday night, and the Chiefs expect to receive a 2025 3rd-round pick in addition to a 2024 7th-round pick flop. Before becoming official, the trade is pending a typical physical for Sneed. The Titans are reportedly ready to sign Sneed to a long-term extension following the deal’s completion.

Sneed’s departure is expected to free up $19.8 million against Kansas City’s salary cap. The team initially franchise-tagged the veteran at the start of the offseason. Sneed earned a solid reputation as a gritty cornerback who could follow and shut down a team’s best wide receiver.

The 27-year-old was a fourth-round draft pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. During his 57 regular-season games with the Chiefs, he had ten interceptions and 40 passes defended. In the postseason, he had one interception and seven passes defended in 13 games.
