The Miami Dolphins have given permission to the representation of defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, a first-round pick in 2018, to gauge trade interest around the NFL, NFL sources tell the Miami Herald.
ESPN first reported Thursday night that Fitzpatrick’s agent Joel Segal is seeking a new landing spot for Fitzpatrick. The Dolphins, however, are not actively shopping Fitzpatrick, according to sources.
The Dolphins, those sources say, would only consider trading Fitzpatrick if “significant compensation” is returned to them for Fitzpatrick.
But -- and this is important -- it’s unlikely any trade will happen soon because what the Dolphins deem as significant includes multiple high-round draft picks, including at least one first-round selection.
