In a strange turn of events, the L'Jarius Sneed trade to the Tennessee Titans is not yet official. Despite Sneed reportedly passing his physical and agreeing to a contract extension with his new team, neither the Chiefs nor Titans have acknowledged the transaction a full week later.

This may be nothing, though amidst concerns about a lingering knee injury, it certainly feels unusual.

Could the trade be derailed or is this just happenstance?

L'Jarius Sneed Trade Still Not Official

Typically, both organizations would have announced the deal by now. The Chiefs' social media team would put out a flattering farewell message while the Titans would welcome in their new defensive cornerstone.

Neither of those things have happened, raising questions about whether or not the trade will actually be finalized.

Chiefs fans have already begun dreaming of how to use the resulting cap space and theorizing about potential draft prospects who could replace Sneed, though it's becoming increasingly possible that something is amiss.

I anticipate an announcement to come soon from both organizations, but I anticipated it coming earlier this week as well. There have been no reports that there's an issue with the transaction, yet it still doesn't sit right that neither franchise has formally declared anything.
