Report: Miami Dolphins trading former Alabama DB Minkah Fitzpatrick
The Miami Dolphins are clearly tanking, regardless of what coach Brian Flores says to the media.
They’ve already traded OL Laremy Tunsil to the Houston Texans and now, former Alabama DB Minkah Fitzpatrick is reportedly on the move.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Pittsburgh Steelers are sending a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to the Dolphins to land Fitzpatrick:

Fitzpatrick hasn’t been happy with the way the Dolphins have been using him, feeling like they aren’t playing him at his best position.
How will he fare with a better Pittsburgh squad? We’ll see moving forward, but the Steelers just lost starting QB Ben Roethlisberger for the year with an elbow injury.
