L’Jarius Sneed of the Titans claims ‘my knee is perfectly fine’ following $76 million contract extension


Apr 2, 2024

The Tennessee Titans introduced their new $55 million cornerback, L’Jarius Sneed, during a news conference where reporters had questions about his knee. Sneed addressed rumors that concerns about his knee impacted his trade market, stating that there is nothing wrong with his knee and he is in good health. He emphasized that he played the entire season without any issues and had only experienced minor knee problems in the past.

Despite reports of a knee injury last season affecting his trade value, Sneed has been durable over the past few years for the Kansas City Chiefs. He missed part of his rookie year in 2020 with a broken collarbone but has only missed three games in three seasons since then. The Titans were confident in Sneed’s health, leading to the successful completion of the trade and a lucrative contract for the cornerback.

The Chiefs, facing salary cap constraints after winning back-to-back Super Bowls, were unable to retain Sneed and granted him permission to seek a trade. Sneed was graded as the No. 30 cornerback in the NFL by Pro Football Focus last season, with one of his standout plays being a crucial forced fumble in the AFC championship game. Now, Sneed will join the Titans as they undergo changes in coaching staff, with Brian Callahan taking over head coaching duties from Mike Vrabel.
