Falcons’ Clayborn should see big payday for six-sack game against Cowboys

Atlanta Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn will most likely see a major payday after recording six sacks against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

ESPN’s Field Yates reported since Clayborn totaled eight sacks on the season after Sunday’s win, he activated a $750,000 incentive bonus if he finishes the season on the 53-man roster.

Two more sacks this season would earn Clayborn $1.25 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

This season, his third with the Falcons, Clayborn has recorded his eight sacks, 16 combined tackles, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a deflected pass.
