Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB (PIT)

Signs massive extension

Fitzpatrick agreed Wednesday with the Steelers on a four-year, $73.6 million extension with the Steelers on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports

Per Schefter, the $36 million in guaranteed money and $18.4 million annual average salary makes Fitzpatrick the highest-paid safety in NFL history. The 2018 first-round pick is coming off a career-high 124-tackle season and has recorded 11 interceptions, four fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles and three touchdowns across his first two-and-a-half seasons in Pittsburgh. The Alabama product projects to be one of the most prolific IDP options in fantasy once again during the 2022 campaign.
