Steelers, Fitzpatrick Agree to History Making Extension

Two straight All-Pro selections and Pro Bowl appearances are, in fact, worth a lot of money. Minkah Fitzpatrick proved this to be true Wednesday when he and the Pittsburgh Steelers agreed on a four-year contract extension worth more than $73.6 million, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. The deal includes $36 million in guaranteed money and will make him the highest-paid safety in the NFL at $18.4 million per season, per Rapoport, eclipsing the previous mark set by Seattle's Jamal Adams ($17.5 million per season). The guaranteed total also surpasses the $32.1 million guaranteed to Denver's Justin Simmons. Fitzpatrick's new contract is worth more per season than the total value of his rookie deal signed with Miami in 2019. It also validates what the football world already knew to be true: The Steelers made a wise move when sending a first-round pick (and two day three picks) to the Dolphins for Fitzpatrick.
