Looks like Minkah Fitzpatrick won’t have to deal with a rebuilding franchise for too much longer.
On Thursday, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported that the Dolphins granted permission to the defensive back to seek a trade.
But, and there’s a big but, multiple sources have stated that Miami is asking for too much and their asking price for Fitzpatrick is “too high.”
One team told Mort that Fitzpatrick is the “ideal slot corner who can cover, blitz off the edge, [is] intelligent, a good tackler and a good special teams player,” but not many teams would be willing to part ways with a 1st-round pick to obtain him.
Another GM believes the Dolphins are setting their expectations way too high after “they got an arm and a leg for [Laremy] Tunsil from the Texans.”
The 22-year-old is owed base salaries of $1,227,626 and $1,975,252. His contract includes a fifth-year option to be picked up for the 2022 season.
