Report: Minkah Fitzpatrick granted permission by Dolphins to seek trade
The Miami Dolphins are tanking this season and traded away many of their good players before Week 1. They apparently are willing to even trade one of their remaining talented players.
The Dolphins have granted Minkah Fitzpatrick permission to seek a trade, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. The Dolphins’ asking price for the safety is said to be high.

You could see this coming when Fitzpatrick called out the team’s coaches after the 59-10 Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The No. 11 overall pick last year, Fitzpatrick was burned in coverage a few times by the Ravens. He had 80 tackles and two interceptions last season.
Barry Jackson says Fitzpatrick is frustrated by the way Miami has used him.
Dolphins made Minkah learn six positions this off-season, including two LB spots. This was so simple: He was best slot CB in league last year. Play him there and some boundary. Coaching staff couldn't do the obvious, and now their 2018 first rounder wants to leave

A recent report said several players were trying to get traded away from Miami. This report seems to confirm it.
