L’Jarius Sneed, the Titans cornerback, believed he deserved to be the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. However, his new contract details show that he did not receive that title. The four-year deal he signed has an average payout of $19.1 million.

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

While the total average of $19.1 million is lower than the franchise-tag salary for 2024 ($19.989 million), Sneed will receive $44 million in full guarantees at signing and just surpassing the two-year franchise tag payout of $43.97 million. The contract is front-loaded with higher earnings in the first two years and lower amounts in the final two seasons compared to his potential earnings by accepting another season on the franchise tag in 2024 and exploring other options in subsequent years.

Ultimately, Sneed chose to commit to playing two more seasons under this new deal instead of opting for another season on the franchise tag or exploring other options on free agency or trade market.

Sneed’s decision may have been influenced by factors such as job security and loyalty towards his teammates and coaches rather than monetary gains alone.

In conclusion, while L’Jarius Sneed may have missed out on being named as the highest paid cornerback in NFL history based on his new contract details; however, he still received significant compensation despite missing out on an extra year’s worth of potential earnings through choosing to stay with Titans under this new deal over other options available to him at that time which might have given him more money but less job security or loyalty towards his teammates and coaches was not worth it for him .
