L'Jarius Sneed might still be traded to the Tennessee Titans, after all.

It's been a whirlwind of a week on Sneed rumors, with the Chiefs reportedly getting low-balled in trade offers, Sneed possibly wanting to join the Vikings and most notably, a potential trade with the Titans fizzling out due to his contract demands. Now, Tennessee is reemerging as a legitimate option once again.

Perhaps after seeing the market cool on Sneed's desire to become the highest-paid cornerback in football, the Titans and Chiefs are talking again.

Chiefs Rumors: Titans Reportedly Back in the L'Jarius Sneed Market

Original reports suggested the Chiefs and Titans were discussing a third-round pick as compensation. Notably, Tennessee does not have a third-round pick this year, though it's possible they have plans to acquire one in a separate trade or give multiple picks instead.

It seemed the Chiefs were okay with the compensation, though discussions hit a snag due to Sneed's hefty price tag for a long-term extension.

While it's unclear if Sneed is backing off those demands or not, the two teams are now back at the negotiating table. Kansas City has been steadfast that the organization is comfortable with Sneed playing on the franchise tag this year as the Chiefs aim for a three-peat, though it does not seem that Sneed factors into the team's long-term plans.

The saga is likely to continue for the next couple of weeks, but all parties would likely prefer it to be resolved sooner than later.
