Breaking: Vikings Agree Deal To Sign $20 Million Champion CB

A few NFL teams, including the Minnesota Vikings, have contacted the Kansas City Chiefs regarding a trade for cornerback L’Jarius Sneed.

On Tuesday, March 5, USA Today’s Tyler Dragon revealed the information.

The Chiefs corner has drawn interest from the Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots, Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons, and Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Dragon, who was informed by a person with firsthand knowledge of the issue and USA Today Sports.

Chiefs Used Franchise Tag on L’Jarius Sneed, Will Still Allow Him to Seek Trade

Minnesota is entitled to the 42nd overall pick, which is high enough to be the only pick in a trade. As of Tuesday, the Vikings also have $37 million in 2024 salary cap space available, which they might use to work out a deal for Sneed.

The cornerback would be a fantastic fit for coordinator Brian Flores’s distinctive defensive scheme, which ESPN’s Kevin Seifert described last season in Minnesota.
