Conflicting Reports Emerge on Chiefs Trading L’Jarius Sneed to AFC Suitor

March 16 started off with a bang as conflicting reports surrounded Kansas City Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed and a potential trade to the Indianapolis Colts.

“Sources tell myself & @AtoZSportsNFL that the Chiefs and Colts are ironing out the final details on a trade that will send star CB L’Jarius Sneed to Indianapolis,” A-to-Z Sports Indianapolis beat writer Destin Adams first stated on X.

Adding: “I’m told the Colts are sending a 2024 3rd and an additional pick in 2025.”

Adams is a Colts media member and PFWA certified writer, however, when asked about this report, fellow Indy media member Stephen Holder (ESPN) refuted it.

“That is not accurate. Sorry,” Holder responded after a fan asked about reports saying the Sneed trade was done. In a follow-up, the veteran reporter even noted: “In fact, I’m leaning heavily toward that trade not happening at all.”

In a separate post, prominent Colts podcaster Jason Spears also suggested that Sneed to Indy was a done deal.

“I was told the deal is done,” Spears relayed. “I’m not sure when it gets announced, but it’s done. Ran it by someone in the Colts community with connects & they heard the same. CB with the late night work.”

In the comments, Spears also confirmed the reported trade return, replying: “2024 3rd & an additional 2025 pick. Yes, Destin was 100% accurate.”

The debate over Sneed to Indianapolis didn’t end there.

“Once and for all: There is no trade in place between the Chiefs and Colts for L’Jarius Sneed,” Holder declared about two hours after Adams’ initial report. “I was told this unequivocally from the highest levels of the Colts organization.”

As of 10:30 a.m. EST on March 16, no news of a Sneed trade has been announced. We’ll continue to monitor this situation as the day goes on.

Stephen Holder Reports ‘New Contract’ as Hold-Up in Potential Chiefs-Colts Trade for L’Jarius Sneed
Yesterday, on March 15, Holder shared a thread revealing the “hold-up” in Sneed talks between the Chiefs and Colts.

“Regarding Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed — who was franchised and given permission to seek a trade — my understanding is the holdup is less about KC’s willingness to trade him and more about the challenge of agreeing to a new contract,” he began.

Continuing: “Would effectively be a sign-and-trade situation, so there are two boxes to check: Trade compensation and a new deal. The Colts and other teams continue to have interest but that’s where it stands.”

Later, Holder acknowledged that “I was maybe a little ambiguous here.” Voicing: “Put it this way: I was told the Chiefs are being reasonable. The bigger question is whether anyone can come to terms with Sneed on a contract.”

The ESPN reporter also pointed out that the Colts have “executed well over $200 million in contracts THIS WEEK.”

Final Word From Destin Adams on Reported Trade of L’Jarius Sneed From Chiefs to Colts
After catching wind of Holder’s stance on his report, Adams sent one final post explaining his stance.

“Going to let the situation play out but I stand on the fact that I trust the info I was given from multiple different people here,” Adams wrote. “I never have and never will put out any info that I don’t 100% vet and trust. As I said earlier if I’m proven wrong I’ll own it and apologize to each and every person on this app.”

“But I ask everyone to please not attack myself or Stephen,” he went on. “I respect the work Stephen does tremendously and I appreciate the support so many of you have from me but I want no hostility coming Stephen’s way.”

“I’m going to clock out for a bit and enjoy this Saturday morning and afternoon with my family,” Adams concluded. With both reporters respectfully digging in on their stances, we’ll just have to wait and see how this one plays out.

No Chiefs media members have weighed in with reports of their own at this time.
