Breaking down the details of the L’Jarius Sneed deal

Titans cornerback L’Jarius Sneed believed he deserved to be the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL, but his new contract details show that he did not receive that title. The new four-year deal he signed has an average payout of $19.1 million. While this is less than the $19.989 million franchise-tag salary for 2024, Sneed will receive $25 million this year and $19 million in 2025.

The contract includes a signing bonus of $20 million and various base salaries and roster bonuses for the upcoming years. In 2024, his base salary is fully guaranteed at $4.32 million with an additional per-game active roster bonus of $680,000 that must be earned. In 2025, the base salary is also fully guaranteed at $18.32 million with a per-game active roster bonus of $680,000. For 2026, the base salary is $15.15 million with a portion guaranteed for injury at signing and the rest becoming fully guaranteed in March 2026, along with a per-game active roster bonus of $850,000. In 2027, the base salary is also fully guaranteed at $15.55 million with a per-game active roster bonus of $850,000.

Although the total average of $19.1 million is lower than what he was hoping for, Sneed ultimately chose to commit to the Titans for two more years under this new deal due to its front loading nature where higher earnings are in the first two years and lower amounts in the final two seasons
