Steelers defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick has made history as he has signed a new contract extension that makes him the highest-paid safety in the history of the NFL.

The news was reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter where Fitzpatrick received a four-year extension that gives him $18.4 million per season with $36 million guaranteed at the signing. The total compensation is said to be more than $73.6 million.

Fitzpatrick was originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins 11th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. He was traded one season after his rookie season with the Steelers where he flourished in the new setting.

Since leaving arriving in Pittsburgh, Fitzpatrick has been selected to the Pro Bowl three times and named First-Team All-Pro twice.
