Minkah Fitzpatrick’s latest workout clip should have Pittsburgh Steelers fans very excited.
When Pittsburgh Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick goes to the beach, it is all about putting in the work and not necessarily enjoying the scenery.
The two-time All-Pro defensive superstar was back at it putting in the work during the offseason. He was spotted doing change of direction drills in the sand. Running in the sand is one of the least enjoyable things you can do as a human being, but Fitzpatrick was absolutely flying around out there. It was a day at the beach, but it really wasn’t a day at the beach, now was it?
This is how the Steelers repeat as AFC North champions, despite their rival teams’ best efforts.
Minkah Fitzpatrick and the defense must carry the 2021 Pittsburgh Steelers
While the Steelers should be in the mix to contend for one of seven playoff spots in the AFC in 2021, once again, Pittsburgh will have to be led by Fitzpatrick and its defense. As long as Ben Roethlisberger remains under center and the running game remains underwhelming, this is what it will take to have the Steelers playing in the postseason, plain and simple, so get used to it.
However, the Steelers should have one of the best defenses in football yet again. Even if they lost their stud pass rusher Bud Dupree to the Tennessee Titans in his free agency, Pittsburgh still has T.J. Watt, linebacker Devin Bush coming back from an injury and Fitzpatrick doing unbelievable things in the back-end. Understandably, Fitzpatrick knows that his team has no margin for error.
By putting in the work like this, Fitzpatrick can become the best defensive back in the NFL in 2021.
