    Steelers and All-Pro S Minkah Fitzpatrick reached agreement on a massive four-year contract extension worth over $18.4 million per year, with $36M gtd at signing, per source. The deal, negotiated and confirmed by @WME_Sports, makes Fitzpatrick the highest paid S in NFL history.

    I'd assume because he feels he has outplayed his rookie deal and deserved more money, add to that a couple of months worth of fluffing with people filling his head with the "top receiver on the team" bs. Basically the narrative being this player got paid so that player will be pissed he wasn't a higher priority.

    Tough contract to 'live up to' but he has been a good player worthy of the 1st given up to get him.
    Pittsburgh should settle up with remaining players relatively fast now that a new GM is in place and had time to settle in.
    I think they still might pick up a player come Free Agency part II.

    I like him. But 18 is hard for me to swallow. Giving TJ a massive amount, i could live with. Due to TJ performance.

    I'm happy for him but it seems too big of a gamble for me with that amount of money. I seen him take a bunch of bad angles and miss some tackle last season. Hopefully he improves in that technique and earns that huge payday.

    On a side note, the price for Jesse Bates for the Bengals just went up. They franchised tagged him but currently he is holding out.

    I'm sure Minkah's gonna have many relatives coming forth that he's never known.

    His body had to take a beating last season from all the tackles.
    A little healing money.
