Daron Payne Presser: The new deal hasn’t hit me yet

Daron Payne speaks to the media after signing his new deal

The Washington Commanders placed the franchise tag on DT Daron Payne, and many people expected that to lead to another contract year. Payne had the best season of his career last year while playing on the 5th year option. He said that he wanted to be here for the team, even if his agent had other options in mind for the former 1st round pick. Payne agreed to a 4-year, $90 million contract extension yesterday, and came to Commanders headquarters today to sign the deal and make it official.
