Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed is reportedly a free agency target of the Falcons after urging Kansas City brass to “pay me” following the team’s Super Bowl victory.

Sneed, a 2020 fourth-round pick, will have his four-year, $3.9 million deal expire this season.

And according to Sportkeedathe Falcons are ‘on track’ for the 27-year-old, while other teams are also expected to show interest once the legal wrangling period begins.

The report also mentioned the Broncos as a team interested in Sneed, with the defensive back teasing a possible move to the Eagles over the weekend.

Sneed posted a photo on Instagram of himself making an airplane motion with his arms, captioning it with an Eagles emoji.

Eagles receiver DeVonta Smith liked the post.

Three Eagles players – Boston Scott, Milton Williams and Griffin Herbert – were teammates of Sneed at Louisiana Tech.

And Sportskeeda has reported that the trio is “actively recruiting” the Chiefs star to come to Philly.

Earlier this month, Sneed spoke on Up & Adams and had just two words for general manager Brett Veach before his contract expired this season.

“Pay me,” Sneed said. ‘Pay me, pay me. That’s what I have to say: pay me.

Now he faces a large pay increase, according to estimates by the American newspaper The Guardian Arrowhead Report placing his next contract somewhere between $15.5 million and $17.5 million.

Kansas City could also place the franchise tag on Sneed, which would keep him around for another year and pay him $18.8 million.

Sneed recorded two tackles in the Super Bowl and impressed in coverage as the Chiefs defeated the 49ers 25-22.

He also started 16 games in the regular season and all four games in the playoffs.
