The new four-year contract signed by Titans cornerback L’Jarius Snead has a lower average salary of $19.1 million than he believed he deserved to be the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. Although his deal includes a $20 million signing bonus and various base salaries and roster bonuses for the coming years, Sneed will not have the title of highest-paid cornerback in the league.

In 2024, his base salary is fully guaranteed at $4.32 million, with an additional $680,000 per game active bonus that must be earned. In 2025, the base salary is fully guaranteed at $18.32 million, with an active per-game bonus of $680,000. For 2026, the base salary is partially guaranteed at $15.15 million, with injury guarantees at signing and remaining fully guaranteed in March 2026 along with an active per-game bonus of $850,000. In 2027, his base salary is also partially guaranteed at $15.55 million along with an active bonus per game of $850,000.

Although Sneed may have potentially earned more by accepting a second season of the franchise tag in 2024 and exploring other options in the coming years, he ultimately decided to commit to the Titans for two more years under this new deal. The overall average of $19.1 million falls short of the franchise’s estimated payout for 2024 but still exceeds his previous salary by over $3 million annually. With a total guarantee value of $44 million at signing surpassing the two-year franchise tag payout by only about half a million dollars
