It's been a good day for Deshaun Watson.
He signed a four-year extension making his deal reportedly worth $177 million and with a four-year average pay ($39 million) that will lead the NFL.
And on a virtual press conference Saturday evening, he got to see a familiar face in Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, who crashed the Zoom call with his congratulations.
Swinney even had some jokes:
