Dolphins TE Anthony Fasano Signs 2-Year Extension

Miami Dolphins tight end Anthony Fasano has signed a two-year contract extension, Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Volin adds that Fasano received a $2.1 million signing bonus, and in terms of base salary, will earn $1.9 million in 2011 and $3.6 million in 2012. An additional $150,000 is available in workout bonuses and incentives, pushing the total value of "new money" in the extension to $7.75 million.

Fasano's $1.176 million base salary under the one-year restricted free agent tender is unchanged.

A second-round pick (53rd overall) out of Notre Dame by the Dallas Cowboys, Fasano (6-4, 265) was traded to the Dolphins in 2008, reuniting with Bill Parcells, Jeff Ireland, and Tony Sparano, who were with the Cowboys when Fasano entered the league.

In 71 career games, Fasano has caught 118 passes for 1,429 yards and 13 touchdowns. Through nine games this season, Fasano has 25 receptions, 367 yards, and is tied for the team lead with three touchdown receptions.
