L'Jarius Sneed's contract negotiations and potential trade scenarios are dominating the storylines while Chiefs Kingdom waits to hear more news on Chris Jones' potential extension.

We've heard reports on Sneed's potential trade value as teams start bargaining to land the 27-year-old star cornerback. Now, we're getting a clearer picture what specific teams are interested in landing Sneed's services.

A reported seven teams have signaled interest, giving the Chiefs plenty of chances to find the best trade partner and relative compensation.

Chiefs Trade Rumors: Seven Teams Expressing Interest in L'Jarius Sneed

According to Tyler Dragon of USA Today, the Vikings, Colts, Titans, Patriots, Lions, Falcons and Jaguars have all inquired about potential trade packages for Sneed.

No specific trade offers have been reported, and the Chiefs have until mid-July to agree to an extension or the trade deadline to find a deal, otherwise, Sneed could potentially walk for nothing next offseason after playing on the franchise tag this year.

I'd anticipate that if the Chiefs trade Sneed, it'll happen before the NFL Draft. A second or third-round pick feels like the most probable compensation, so it'd make little sense for Brett Veach to wait for a deal if he wanted to utilize draft picks in a strong 2024 class.

There remains a distinct possibility that Sneed stas in Kansas City for a shot at a three-peat, though that likelihood is dwindling by the day. We'll keep you updated as new details are reported, but at least now we have some clarity on what teams Sneed could play for.

It's worth noting that four of the teams listed are in the AFC, and I think Veach could be reluctant to send Sneed to a contender in the same conference, so I find the Vikings, Lions and Falcons to be the most likely destinations listed there.
