Whether or not the Miami Dolphins honor his request, Minkah Fitzpatrick is focused on his Week 2 opponent and refused to address reports he was granted permission to seek a trade.

"I'm not talking about none of that right now," Fitzpatrick told reporters Friday, including WPLG's Clay Ferraro. "(I'm) focusing on the New England Patriots, it'll be a great game, (they're) a great team this Sunday.

"I'm not talking about future, I'm not talking about past. I'm talking about right now, which is the New England Patriots."
