Fasano signed extension with Fins on November 5

Though reports of tight end Anthony Fasano’s two-year contract extension are emerging now, a league source tells us that the deal was signed on November 5.

As first reported (as best we can tell) by Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, Fasano received a signing bonus of $2.1 million, with base salaries of $1.9 million in 2011 and $3.6 million in 2012.

The deal also includes workout bonuses of $75,000 in 2011 and $75,000 in 2012.

Fasano arrived via trade in 2008 from the Cowboys.  He has 25 receptions for 367 yards and three touchdowns in 2010.

  1. Good to know he signed it before his big day on Sunday. Maybe now that he has money, he feels worthy of being a #1 TE…

  2. Fassano is mediocre at best. The smart teams (read the Pats) go out and draft a couple of young studs and couple them with a veteran like Crumpler. Fassano isn’t a true number 1 and the Dolphins would be smart to add a true pass catching TE this off-season.

  3. Fasano was a Bill Parcells favorite coming out of college, and it doesn’t surprise me that the Cowboys drafted him while Parcells was running the show there or that Miami traded to get him once Parcells ended up there. He was noted more for his blocking than his receiving skills in South Bend, but (as he showed on Sunday) he can also catch the ball if need be.

  4. shows the character of the individual that one has a career high after signing an extension and another with the redskins has a career low after signing an extension. I’m happy to have fasano on the Dolphins.

  5. Fasano is under-rated. When he gets pass targets, he’s productive. He can’t control how bad the Qb has been in Miami. Marshall is a beast, but how has his production been in South Beach?

  6. Fasano is pretty solid, but it would be nice to have another cathcing type TE with the offense that Miami plays.
