Titans and Chiefs Trade L’Jarius Sneed

Former Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed has officially been traded to the Tennessee Titans. The trade was confirmed today by both teams, with the Titans giving up their 2025 third-round draft pick in exchange for Sneed. Additionally, the two teams are swapping seventh-round picks in the upcoming draft.

The Chiefs made the decision to trade Sneed rather than let him walk in free agency, ultimately receiving a better return for him. If they had allowed him to sign elsewhere as a free agent, the Chiefs would have only received a 2025 compensatory pick at the end of the third round. By trading Sneed, they were able to secure a higher third-round pick in 2025 and move up in this year’s seventh round.

Sneed was drafted by the Chiefs in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL draft and has since become a full-time starter for the team. The Titans are expected to sign Sneed to a four-year, $76 million contract, with hopes that he will be a valuable starter for years to come in Tennessee.
