Minkah Fitzpatrick is heading into the Pittsburgh Steelers after the Miami Dolphins chose to trade the safety.
The Dolphins deal means they also get a 2020 fifth-round pick and a sixth-rounder in 2021, while Pittsburgh gets fourth and seventh-round selections, together with the player.
Having parted ways with left tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills this season, the Dolphins currently hold five first-round selections in another two NFL drafts.
They have yet to be aggressive in either of the games this season with significant losses to the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots. There have been reports of multiple players contacting their representatives with the expectation of being traded from the team.
He’s recorded nine pass breakups and two interceptions in 18 career games, not missing a game in his young career.
Meanwhile, the Steelers, are looking to revive their season as they sit 0-2 having lost quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. He suffered an elbow injury playing against the Seattle Seahawks and the injury is expected to require surgery.
While Roethlisberger is out for the season, they have to face the unbeaten 49ers in San Francisco on Sunday with back-up QB Mason Rudolph placed to begin for the remainder of the season.
