5 safest Pittsburgh Steelers jerseys to purchase in 2021
By Tommy Jaggi
Minkah Fitzpatrick: #39
Investing in a Minkah Fitzpatrick jersey might be slightly riskier than T.J. Watt, but in the grand scheme of things, this will be a jersey that shouldn’t go out of style with Steelers fans. Fitzpatrick has less than two full seasons of dominant play as one of the league’s best safeties, but don’t let that deter you.
Now just 24 years old, Minkah is coming off two straight first-team All-Pro seasons (one of the youngest defenders in NFL history to do this), and he is still just 24 years old. Though we can’t expect him to pull in 5 interceptions or score a pair of defensive touchdowns every year, he clearly is a cut above the rest, and the Steelers will award him accordingly.
Like Watt, Minkah is in no danger of Pittsburgh letting him hit free agency after his rookie deal, and they can afford to pay him as one of the top defenders in the game. With a long career still ahead of him and many good years left in the tank, the number 39 Steelers jersey is a safe buy that has a chance to be an iconic number after Minkah Fitzpatrick is gone. You should be able to purchase this confidently.
