ASHBURN, Va. (WDVM) – With a few hours left before players report to Richmond, Virginia, for training camp, Washington’s Jonathan Allen has reached a new four-year deal with the team.

The defensive tackle was a first-round selection in the 2017 draft, and has grown into a top defensive talent in the league. His new deal is worth $72 million dollars, including a $30 million signing bonus, according to his agent.

The 26-year old lineman is the first Washington player drafted in the first round to reach a second contract agreement with the franchise; since Ryan Kerrigan. Kerrigan was the first overall pick in 2011.
