Dolphins’ Minkah Fitzpatrick calls out team’s coaches over playcalls
Is Minkah Fitzpatrick trying to get himself traded by the Miami Dolphins?
The No. 11 overall pick by the team last year, Fitzpatrick was burned several times along with the Dolphins’ other defensive backs during the team’s 59-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Fitzpatrick said on Monday that players need to be better, but he also questioned the coaches’ calls.
Minkah Fitzpatrick, on DB issues: "Sometimes we weren't put in the best position, but even still, it's up to the players to make the plays. Coach can call whatever he wants but, like on my play, I wasn't in the best position but I still got to make the play."

Fitzpatrick had 80 tackles and two interceptions last season. There’s no doubt he would be attractive if he were available in trades, but he and Xavien Howard are probably two players the team deems keepers.
The Dolphins are clearly tanking this season, which has reportedly led many players to seek trades away from the team. Even if they’re intending to have an ugly season, it won’t be easy to endure.
