The Tennessee Titans made a splash this offseason with one of their biggest moves involving trading for Kansas City Chiefs cornerback L'Jarius Sneed. The Titans signed Sneed to a four-year deal worth $76.4 million, indicating that they see him as a lockdown corner for them for the next several years.

When the Titans extended Sneed, there was some chatter on if it was the right move or not but after seeing how much other corners are earning this offseason, it was definitely the right call.

The Buccaneers recently extended Antoine Winfield, making him the highest-paid corner in the league while earning $21 million a year with Jaire Alexander and Denzel Ward right behind him. Sneed is set to earn $19.8 million this year, making him a bargain for the 2024 season.

Titans got a steal with L'Jarius Sneed trade

The Titans were aggressive this offseason and they needed to be after finishing the 2023 season at the bottom of the AFC South and being the only team in the division to not have a winning record. They have a new head coach in Brian Callahan and are hoping to make the rest of the team as strong as possible while Will Levis is still on his rookie deal.

If the Sneed trade pans out, the front office will look like geniuses for pulling that off (and not having to give up much in return) and the rest of the team should reap the benefits as well. Let's hope that's the case.
