Chiefs Kingdom will always be thankful for L'Jarius Sneed

Just because L'Jarius Sneed was traded from the Kansas City Chiefs doesn't mean he'll be forgotten. In fact, he'll be remembered for years to come.

L'Jarius Sneed has the perfect name for rhyming. Have you tried it? Sneed, feed, lead, bleed, bead, deed. You get the point.

Well, now I propose "L'Jarius Freed". Not because he was being held captive by the Kansas City Chiefs, but because he was finally able to get the money the Chiefs weren't going to pay him. L'Jarius got his bag with the Tennessee Titans, and good for him.

I harbor no bitter feelings, and neither should the rest of Chiefs Kingdom. Kansas City and Sneed had a good run. Actually, a great run. He has over 300 tackles, 40 passes defensed, 10 interceptions, and a remarkable 13 quarterback hits—remember, he's a cornerback!—and that's just a few of the stats Sneed racked up over the last four years.

As Patrick pointed out, all of that production led to two Super Bowl Championships. And for that, L'Jarius Sneed will always be a hero in Kansas City.

Just because L'Jarius Sneed was traded from the Chiefs doesn't mean he'll be forgotten. In fact, he'll be remembered for years to come.

It isn't just that Sneed was on the team and a major contributor. In this past Super Bowl run, Sneed single-handedly kept the Baltimore Ravens out of the end zone on what should have been an easy score.

I keep watching that play over and over and over again, and the timing that Sneed had is just unbelievable. Even another inch, and Zay Flowers would've been across the line. In a game that was a defensive slugfest, every play mattered, and Sneed made the ultimate play.

This was a theme throughout the season. He gave us the lowest completion percentage of his career at just 51% while covering some of the top receivers in the league like Tyreek Hill, Justin Jefferson, AJ Brown, Devante Adams, Keenan Allen, and Ja'Marr Chase. Crucially, he didn't allow a single touchdown.

It was a true crime that Sneed didn't make the Pro Bowl or All-Pro team this season considering his stats. He was easily one of the best defensive backs in the league and the Chiefs will be forever indebted to him.

Here is a tip of the cap to L'Jarius Sneed. Congratulations on the contract and this is one Chiefs fan that wishes you all the best (except when you play the Chiefs).
