While you were watching basketball on Friday night, the Tennessee Titans made a big trade, acquiring L'Jarius Sneed from the Kansas City Chiefs. It didn't take a whole lot to land the two-time Super Bowl-winning cornerback from the Chiefs, as the Titans only swapped seventh-rounders with KC and then sent them a third-round pick for the 2025 draft.

The Titans have been aggressive this offseason and this move just shows that they're serious about putting a good team on the field. How are the experts feeling about this trade though?

What grades are the Titans receiving for the L'Jarius Sneed trade?

Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports gave the trade a B grade, noting that the Titans might not be competitive enough in time for this trade to really be worthwhile for them.

"Getting a Pro Bowl-caliber, title-winning cover man for a future third-rounder is objectively good value, but there are still some fair questions here: Will Tennessee be truly competitive before Sneed, 27, approaches 30 on a top-of-the-market contract at a notoriously volatile position?"

Meanwhile, Kevin Patra of gave the Titans an A- for the deal and points to pairing him with Chidobe Awuzie as a win for Tennessee.

"Pairing Sneed with free agent addition Chidobe Awuzie turns something that was a weakness for the Titans last season into a strength this year. Tennessee should be able to play much more physically in new DC Dennard Wilson's scheme with the two veterans on the back end."

Anthony DiBona of Pro Football Network was yet another person to issue a B grade to the Titans for this deal. DiBona says that he worries about the extension that Tennessee signed Sneed to and worries that the cornerback won't live up to that deal.

"The only concern with this deal for the Titans is the massive extension that they handed to him. At $19 million per year, Sneed is now paid like a top-three cornerback in the NFL. If Sneed reverts to his form prior to last season, Tennessee will likely regret this deal."

Hopefully, Patra's optimism is how this trade ends up panning out for the Titans. They swung for the fences and now we'll have to see if it pays off for them in the long run.
