Anthony Fasano’s week just keeps getting better and better. A couple days after setting a new career high for receiving yards, Fasano has been awarded a two-year contract extension to remain in Miami through the 2012 season, according to the Palm Beach Post. The new deal reportedly pays Fasano base salaries of $1.9 million in 2011 and $3.6 million in 2012.
Fasano has always had value as an elite blocker, but is currently on pace for career highs in receptions and receiving yards. Although, the Dolphins should probably pursue a number two tight end with strong receiving skills in the offseason, Anthony Fasano appears like a lock to remain the starter in Miami for the next two and a half years.
