The Kansas City Chiefs have traded one of their better players away. Cornerback L’Jarius Snead was franchise tagged earlier this off-season.

Snead was given permission to speak to other teams. Now, he has been traded to the Tennessee Titans late Friday night.

In exchange, the Chiefs are receiving a 2025 third round draft pick. They’ll also receive a 2024 seven round draft pick.

Snead will also receive a new contract from the Titans. At this time, the terms of the new contract are not disclosed.

The Titans have already dolled out over $220 million this offseason. The team previously signed wide receiver Calvin Ridley to a four-year, $92 million deal.

The team also signed Tony Pollard, Lloyd Cushenberry, Mason Rudolph, Kenneth Murray Jr., and Chidobe Awuzie. The team also made minor signings, as well.

Awuzie, when he signed with the team, was expected to be the starting left cornerback. Snead is also a left cornerback.

It is likely that Awuzie, who signed a deal worth $25.5 million, will become the starting right cornerback. Tre Avery was projected to be the team’s starting right cornerback before the trade.

The two-time Super Bowl champion spent the last four seasons with the Chiefs.

The 27-year-old, who has developed into one of the best cornerbacks in the league, has appeared in 57 games. He made 54 starts.

He has made 303 tackles, 19 tackles for a loss and 13 quarterback hits. He has also had 6.5 sacks.

Snead has had 10 interceptions. He has also had four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He also has had 40 pass deflections.
