Washington Commanders defensive lineman Daron Payne wasn’t hearing it from ESPN analyst Robert Griffin III over his criticisms of the team’s unit.

Giffin shared his critique of the front calling out the several first-round picks on the line while tossing a jab towards Payne and Jonathan Allen who had an altercation on the sidelines last season. Payne swiftly responded to Griffin’s statement on Twitter.

Former Alabama teammate Raekwon Davis also joined in with Payne who threw a jab of his own toward the former Washington quarterback.

The Washington defensive line boasts several high-profile draft picks including Payne, Allen, Chase Young, Montez Sweat and now second-round pick Phidarian Mathis. The defense ranked 22nd overall in yards allowed in 2021 and was ranked ninth in the league in total rushing yards allowed.
