The Miami Dolphins have officially traded Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for a 2020 first round pick, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported earlier tonight.

Multiple sources have confirmed that Fitzpatrick was going to be shipped off this week. The pundits gave the trade to be finished by Tuesday, and the Dolphins followed the script to the T.

Coach Brian Flores allowed the former Alabama standout to talk with multiple teams as he was frustrated with the way he was asked to play multiple positions on defense. He is listed as a free safety, but the Dolphins have assigned him to the cornerback position as well.

There were up to six teams that expressed their interest in Fitzpatrick. Besides the Steelers, the Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks, and Washington Redskins were all making offers for Fitzpatrick.

The Cowboys even considered making a player swap involving Taco Charlton just to get Fitzgerald. If they wanted him badly enough, they would have thrown in a draft pick just to get their guy.

However, the Steelers’ first-round pick was all they needed to secure Fitzgerald. It’s true that Ben Roethlisberger is out with an elbow injury, but there’s little question that the pick they got won’t rank high in the draft.

The Dolphins do need quality players as they are quickly becoming the worst team in league history. However, there’s a growing consensus among Dolphins fans that the trade is a dumpster fire.

Miami fans are probably looking forward to June 2020 when they can be all hyped up with Tua Tagovailoa’s arrival. Until then, they will have to stomach this terrible season.
