Boatos sobre o comércio da NFL: Golfinhos dão permissão a Minkah Fitzpatrick para buscar uma negociação por relatório – Niners Nation


TheMiami Dolphinstankathon continues! ESPN’s Chris Mortensenreportsthat the Dolphins have granted second-year safetyMinkah Fitzpatrickpermission to seek a trade. It doesn’t sound like there’s been much interest as teams haven’t been too thrilled with the Dolphin’s first-round pick asking price.

Mortenson said that the Dolphins are not actively shopping Fitzpatrick, but everyone should keep in mind theyweren’t actively shopping tackle Laremy Tunsil either.

A first-round pick is quite a hefty price tag, but this is Fitzpatrick’s second year in the NFL. He was taken 11th overall in the 2018NFL Draftand had a solid year with highlights including picking off Tom Brady. He finished 2018 with two interceptions, and nine passes defended 80 tackles, one touchdown, and 11 starts.

So now it’s time to look at the49ers. They could use a safety, and Fitzpatrick could be a great addition. While a first-round pick seems like a lot, a team is getting a rookie contract along with a safety that showed promise their rookie season. The production, along with the deal, would be what drives the price up. Still, this can be the street price, and the Dolphins could be open to negotiating.

The 49ers do not have a second-rounder in the 2020 draft since they traded that pick away for Dee Ford. If they were to win theSuper Bowlin 2019, they’d pick 32nd so that would almost be like a second-round pick I suppose.

The 49ers do need safety depth, but with Fitzpatrick, it seems like it’s a bit unnecessary.Tarvarius Moorehas been lighting things up at free safety whileJimmie Wardrecovers from another injury. They could use depth behindMooreif they made him the starter, after all,Jimmie Wardis on a one-year deal.

As far as moving Fitzpatrick around, that’s how all of this mess got started. Fitzpatrick has already commented on howhe doesn’t fit strong safety, and he’s not really a cornerback/linebacker either. To spend that capital on a new defensive swiss army knife seems a bit excessive.

But Fitzpatrick is a good player. Small sample size, but a cheap contract for the near-three years left on the deal. Would you look to bring him in?

Notes if Minkah Fitzpatrick were traded:
* Under contract through 2021 (plus a fifth-year option)
* Base salary/cap hit in 2019-2021: $1.23M, $1.98M and $2.27M
* Just 22 years old
* Can play either safety spot and slot cornerback
* Recorded 80 tackles, 9 PD and 2 INT as a rookie
