Breaking down the details of the L’Jarius Sneed deal

The new four-year contract signed by Titans cornerback L’Jarius Sneed has an average payout of $19.1 million, which falls short of his belief that he deserved to be the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. The deal includes a signing bonus of $20 million and various base salaries and roster bonuses for the upcoming years.

In 2024, Sneed will receive a fully guaranteed base salary of $4.32 million, along with an additional per-game active roster bonus of $680,000 that must be earned. In 2025, his base salary will increase to $18.32 million, also fully guaranteed, with a per-game active roster bonus of $680,000. For 2026, his base salary will be $15.15 million, with a portion guaranteed for injury at signing and the rest becoming fully guaranteed in March 2026. He will also receive a per-game active roster bonus of $850,000 for that year. In 2027, his base salary will rise to $15.55 million, with a per-game active roster bonus of $850,000 as well.

While Sneed may have potentially earned more by accepting a second season of the franchise tag in 2024 and exploring other options in the following years, he ultimately chose to commit to the Titans for two more years under this new deal. Despite not being the highest-paid cornerback in the league as he had hoped for, Sneed will still receive significant earnings over the next four years under this contract agreement.
