Dolphins trade Minkah Fitzpatrick to Steelers per reports
Fins first round pick from 2018 traded
DAVIE, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins have traded Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers per reports.
Accoring to the NFL Network's Ian Rapaport, the Dolphins are getting a first-round pick from the Steelers.
Fitzpatrick was Miami's 2018 first-round pick, No. 11 overall.
The safety out of Alabama was considered a sure-fire future NFL contributor.
Fitzpatrick expressed concerns over the offseason with how the Dolphins defense was using him.
His skill-set is naturally in the slot, but new Dolphins head coach Brian Flores wanted to use Fitzpatrick in a variety of roles.
Fitzpatrick's trade demands became public before Miami played against New England on Sunday.
The Dolphins have started the season 0-2.
They play at Dallas on Sunday.
