Dallas Cowboys Trading First-Round Pick for Minkah Fitzpatrick is Totally Stupid

Should the Raiders trade for Dolphins DB Minkah Fitzpatrick

First off, even if the thought of Minkah Fitzpatrick joining a team like the Los Angeles Rams in a potential trade seems like a long shot, it never hurts a team to at least give it a try since they anything could happen.

Talent wise, it's easy to understand Fitzpatrick's frustration since this is a young safety with plenty of unbelievable years left ahead of him, and it would be a shame to see Miami let some of those incredible years go to complete waste.

It the Cowboys are serious about getting Fitzpatrick, they need to move fast.

Two important questions regarding Fitzpatrick must be addressed by the Dolphins moving forward. "At the end of the day, we wanted to get some other guys in there".

On Thursday, apparent confirmation surfaced that one of the team's top young players is indeed looking for a way out. The Minnesota Vikings have had disgusting luck with recent first-round draft picks. He can play one of the outside cornerback spots, he can play nickel corner and he can also play safety next to Eric Reid or Tre Boston.

Fitzpatrick was a top-flight prospect coming out of Alabama and has proven his worth as a jack-of-all-trades in the secondary, playing safety and corner.

Regarding Fitzpatrick, coach Brian Flores, owner Stephen Ross and Grier had multiple conversations with him urging him to stay in Miami, Grier said.


Fitzpatrick agreed with his mother's judgment.

"She feels very strongly". "Like I said, we'll be aggressive in free agency". And they're confident they might get an extra piece of compensation in the deal as well - perhaps a player, or maybe a lower-round draft pick.

Oh, did I mention that Ramsey is slated to earn US$7.4 million this season and $13.7 million in 2020, and that Fitzpatrick is slated to make $13.3 million over the next three seasons? "I'm not 215 pounds, 220 pounds. So playing in the box isn't best suited for me, but that's what Coach is asking me to do".

Joining some of his Dolphins teammates that have already made it clear they want out after a disastrous Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the former Alabama safety was granted permission to seek a trade this week. Would a move to the Dolphins be among them? But John Elway would be kidding himself if he felt his roster was too set to add Fitzpatrick or that his 2020 draft picks were more valuable.

On the off chance that the Dolphins do find a trade partner, Fitzpatrick would be the second talented young player the Dolphins recently jettisoned after the team traded starting left tackle and 2016 first-round draft pick Laremy Tunsil to the Houston Texans.

However, the strategy of pursuing such a drastic overhaul could leave the Dolphins with a roster so short of quality that they might not be able to make the most of Tagovailoa even if they were to draft him.
