Dolphins CB Xavien Howard’s hilarious reaction to Miami trading Minkah Fitzpatrick

The Dolphins are undoubtedly in a rebuilding stage for their franchise. With them having a roster that is incapable of winning games, they are prompted to begin trading players who are key contributors to their team.
As Howard was illustrating with his tweet, Miami is trading players left and right. The moves began with the Dolphins shipping Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills to the Houston Texans.
Shortly after that, they proceeded to part ways with standout linebacker Kiko Alonso as he was traded to the New Orleans Saints. By means of all of these trades, Miami is setting themselves up to have plenty of draft capital in the next couple of years.
It’s nice to have an abundance of draft picks, but they are going to need to make them count. If Josh Rosen isn’t the quarterback of the future, then they’ll inevitably be going after one of the top quarterback prospects.
Altogether, the Dolphins now own three first-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft after trading Fitzpatrick. At the same time though, they will be having a rough time trying to win football games this year.
The Dolphins have already traded quite a few players recently, but they aren’t close to done. There have been rumors that Kenyan Drake and Reshad Jones could be made available.
Howard is already lonely on the defense, but he may be losing a few more teammates before the season concludes.
