Early lifeEdit

Payne is descended from a long line of farmers from outside Victor, New York and went to high school at Victor Senior, graduating in 1993. In 1993, he was elected to the All-Greater Rochester and All State teams and also participated in the Eddie Meath All Star Game. He lived with his mother, stepfather, and two siblings.

He played college football at Cornell and was a member of the Sphinx Head Society and Delta Upsilon.

Professional careerEdit

Payne was originally drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the fourth round of the 1997 NFL Draft.

He was selected by the Houston Texans in the Expansion Draft in 2002. He was selected along with Jaguar teammates Tony Boselli and Gary Walker. The move allowed the Jaguars to be under the salary cap. The move was surprising considering the Texans and Jaguars were in the same division.

On February 28, 2007 the Texans released him. He was signed by the Jaguars on August 18, re-joining the team with which he began his career. However, on September 1, he was released by the team as they cut their roster to 53 players.

Current InformationEdit

Seth now lives with his wife, Brandi Unverdorben Payne, and his daughter, Daylin Payne in Houston, Texas. Seth’s brother is current Rugby America’s CEO Dan Payne (rugby union).[1]

He hosts the morning show for SportsRadio 610 called Mad Radio and hosts a podcast called "The Deceptively Fast Podcast". [2]
