A surprise team has entered the L'Jarius Sneed sweepstakes.

The star cornerback has received interest from several teams, with talks reportedly breaking down with both the Titans and Colts due to Sneed's desire to become the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL.

Now, Sneed reportedly would "love" to play for Brian Flores with the Minnesota Vikings. Here's the latest:

It's important to note that this is only an unsubstantiated rumor at this point and not confirmed by Sneed's camp. Nonetheless, it makes sense as a potential destination given Flores' reputation as a great defensive mind.

The Vikings have limited draft capital, so a theoretical trade would probably require some maneuvering. That being said, the Chiefs have reportedly been low-balled in offers for Sneed to this point. It may not require much draft capital to get the deal done.

If trade compensation were agreed to, the main question would be whether Sneed can come to an agreement for a long-term extension with Minnesota. Sneed wants to get paid and it's unclear if the Vikings are willing to meet his demands.

We'll keep you updated in the coming days as more information becomes available.

For now, the Chiefs have +600 odds to win the Super Bowl while the Vikings sit at +8000. If this trade materialized, you could expect a shift for both teams.
