The former first-team All-Big Ten honoree was entering the final year of his four-year, 4.172 million rookie contract. He was expected to make a base salary of $1.797 million this season before agreeing to the extension.
He’ll now make about $7 million this season — more than double than what he made during his first three years combined — and in the following two campaigns.
Fiedorowicz has started 46 games the past three seasons after the Texans drafted him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. His didn’t produce much the first two years before breaking out in 2016. In 15 games, Fiedorowicz caught 54 balls for 559 yards and scored four touchdowns.
