Minkah Fitzpatrick Calls Split From Dolphins A ‘Business Decision’ As He Prepares To Face Former Team

A chain reaction of events had to occur in order to get Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Pittsburgh Steelers, some of which I’m probably not even considering, but it constituted three primary conditions: 1) to make him available for trade; 2) to give the Steelers a need for him; and 3) to put them in a position to be a desirable trade target.

All three of these conditions were met. First and foremost, the Miami Dolphins began a rebuilding process that is not set to begin until 2020, as they angle for the first-overall pick in next year’s draft.
