  • Steelers, Minkah Fitzpatrick Agree On Four-Year Deal

    The Pittsburgh Steelers and All-Pro safety Minkah Fitzpatrick agreed to a massive four-year contract extension on Wednesday worth over $18.4 million per year with $36 million guaranteed at signing, according to a source. The deal makes Fitzpatrick the highest-paid safety in NFL history. The former first-rounder in 2018 cashes in after posting a career-high 124 tackles (84 solo), two interceptions, seven passes defensed, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery in 16 starts last year for Pittsburgh. Fitzpatrick was an All-Pro and Pro Bowl selection in both 2019 and 2020 and finished last season as the No. 5 fantasy defensive back in IDP leagues. He will once again be highly valuable in those formats in 2022.

  • Steelers Not Concerned With Minkah Fitzpatrick's Contract

    Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said he's not concerned about All-Pro safety Minkah Fitzpatrick sitting out the team's mandatory minicamp this week. "I have zero concerns about Minkah Fitzpatrick, he's a unicorn. He is always in great shape. He loves football," Austin said on 93.7 The Fan. "He's got all the stuff he wants. So I have zero worries about it and that stuff will take care of itself." Fitzpatrick is sitting out as he looks for a new deal heading into the final season of his current contract. The 25-year-old has been a staple for the Steelers secondary since joining them in 2019, and he had a career-high 124 tackles (84 solo), two interceptions seven passes defensed, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery in 16 games in 2021.

  • Minkah Fitzpatrick May Not Receive Extension Anytime Soon

    Pittsburgh Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick has proven to be one of the most potent defensive backs in the league. Unsurprisingly, the 25-year-old is coming off another productive season, finishing 2021 with a career-high 124 total tackles (84 solo) along with two interceptions. Yet, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the organization "won't be rushed into a deal." Granted, that doesn't mean he won't receive one, although the Steelers may continue to play it cool over the next few months before making an offer. Nonetheless, this situation could spill into the Summer, and with Pittsburgh notorious for not negotiating during the season, a holdout may be possible. Fitzpatrick has been one of the best IDP options, so as long the contract situation doesn't keep him off the field, he should remain an elite fantasy asset.
