With a couple of key free agent signings set to become official soon, the Steelers have made a move with one of their own players.
Per Field Yates of ESPN, Pittsburgh has restructured safety Minkah Fitzpatrick‘s contract, creating $10.065 million in cap space for the club in 2023.
Fitzpatrick signed a four-year, $73.6 million extension with the Steelers last June.
Fitzpatrick has been one of the league’s best safeties since Pittsburgh acquired him from Miami in 2019. He was named a first-team All-Pro for the third time in 2022.
In 15 games, Fitzpatrick recorded 96 total tackles with 11 passes defensed and a league-leading six interceptions.
The Steelers have notably agreed to sign cornerback Patrick Peterson, Nate Herbig, Damontae Kazee, Larry Ogunjobi, and Cole Holcomb this week.
