Andy Reid have 3 reason why he criticizes L'Jaruis Sneed's after departure from KC Chiefs

The cornerback has been traded to the Tennessee Titans during the off-season and will no longer be a part of the Super Bowl-defending Chiefs.

Sneed was a crucial part of the campaign last season that ended with the Chiefs winning the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas.

The salary cap has been given as the primary reason for Sneed and the Chiefs parting ways.

Sneed has now been traded to the Titans for a 2025 third-round draft pick and a swap of 2024 seventh-round selection. Sneed is expected to receive a new contract in Tennessee.

Reid’s thoughts on Sneed
Reid has spoken to Paul Kuharsky at the annual league meeting about the 27-year-old Sneed, a player he clearly had a lot of time for.

“[He is] one of my all-time favourite guys,” Reid said. “Great human being. As great a player as he is, he’s an even better human being. As tough as you can imagine. I’m his biggest fan.

“He was our lockdown guy. Every best receiver, he had the best receiver.”

Reid also admitted that Sneed’s exit came because of salary cap reasons.

“You juggle the salary cap, it’s ridiculous what you have to go through,” he added. “The players you can keep and the players you can’t keep. But we all loved him and that wasn’t the problem.”

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes certainly wanted Sneed to stay on the team.

During a chat with Fox4KC, Mahomes opened up about wanting his teammate to stick around in Kansas City for the 2024 campaign.

He said: “I don’t have any say in that. I think you’ll hear from everybody on our team that we want Sneed.”

Describing the sort of player and person Sneed is, he added: “The player he is, that person he is. He’s one of those guys that’s hungry every single day,” He also gave a little insight into what Sneed is like, saying: “He’s not going to be the most vocal guy, not always yelling and screaming.”
