Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano had a pretty good weekend.

On the field, he had his first career-100 yard game, catching five passes for 107 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins’ win against the Titans. Off the field, Fasano, 26, signed a two-year contract extension with the Dolphins, joining Brandon Marshall, Davone Bess and Brian Hartline as the core of the Dolphins’ receiving attack under contract through the 2012 season.

Fasano, a fifth-year veteran now in his third season in Miami, had hoped for a contract extension last offseason, but instead was only offered a 1-year restricted free agent tender for 2010 worth $1.176 million. Now Fasano, who has 367 receiving yards and three touchdowns this year, will get a significant pay bump to stay in Miami — base salaries of $1.9 million in 2011 and $3.6 million in 2012, according to NFL Players Association records.

Not bad... He had a great game.... Not sure if one day warrants an extension, but its not breaking the bank either..
Good for Fasano..

BenVolinPBP Oh and BTW, Fasano's contract was actually signed Nov. 5. #Dolphins kept it under wraps for a good 10 days

Usually players have a big game to get a contract extension. Fasano had a big game after his contract extension.

Fasano is valuable as a blocker but has been inconsistent as an offensive weapon.

Well great...I just hope Miami doesn't think he's the long term answer for the number 1 tight end spot...He'd be great for the number 2 guy though.

Good for Fasano..


It's not just 1 game. He's on pace for a career year in both catches and yards. I'd like a bookend, but he's earned his.

You have to have someone (QB and/or OC) that can get him the ball when he's not being asked to stay in and block.... :fart:

Fasano’s production slipped in 2009 when Pennington was hurt and replaced by Chad Henne, finishing the year with 31 catches for 339 yards and two touchdowns. This year, however, he is on pace for 44 catches, 652 yards and five touchdowns. He is averaging a healthy 14.7 yards per catch, and is rated the third-most productive tight end in the NFL this season by the website ProFootballFocus.com, behind Oakland’s Zach Miller and Dallas’ Jason Witten.

Makes it seem as though Henne is the reason for slip in production when that's not the case at all. Fasano was fumbling and dropping passes for the three games Pennington was in there.

He had 2 fumbles that season, at the worst possible moments...He got hammered in Atlanta on the first one and I don't think he was 100% "there" for a few weeks after that hit.....

Those fumbles were actually, his only fumbles since maybe, high school.....LOL

Still, to be honest and unbiased.....I wouldn't mind seeing a TE that would really challenge Fasano....

When Fasano decides he wants to catch the ball he's a great weapon. When he doesn't, well, we've seen it last year and this year too. If Fasano can take the momentum he had in the Tennessee game and use it for the rest of the season I think our offense will see a boost. The same can be said for our runningbacks too. If Ronnie, Ricky, and Patrick can hang on to the ball and get out in the open field then we're going to rip of some more big plays. Hopefully Thigpen can help us win until Henne is healthy.
:yay:
