Fins GM on rebuild: We're trying to build winner

In his first public comments since the 2019 draft, Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said the Laremy Tunsil and Minkah Fitzpatrick trades were unexpected but unique opportunities.

Dolphins GM Chris Grier said trades for Laremy Tunsil & Minkah Fitzpatrick were "very unexpected." He said HOU kept pursing on Tunsil & when Tunsil saw trade terms on the board he joked: "I would trade me for that too." He said Minkah Fitzpatrick was matter of player wanting out, and they tried to convince him to stay with no avail.

Steelers get Fins DB Fitzpatrick for 1st-round pick

Defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick has been traded by the Dolphins to the Steelers, with a 2020 first-round pick going to Miami.

Full trade details, per source: Dolphins get: Steelers 2020 1st rounder, Steelers 2020 5th rounder, Steelers 2021 6th rounder Steelers get: DB Minkah Fitzpatrick, Dolphins 2020 4th rounder, Dolphins 2021 7th rounder

One of Dolphins few remaining young core pieces — CB Xavien Howard — tweeted a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air gif with Will Smith standing in an empty living room looking around. That seems to be his response to the Minkah Fitzpatrick trade. Miami got good value on the trade, but Fitzpatrick was a 2018 first-round pick who was supposed to be a part of the future. Another player gone in the Dolphins teardown.

Dolphins now set to have three first-round picks (own, Houston, Pittsburgh) in 2020 after the Minkah Fitzpatrick trade. They'll own the draft and they hope Pittsburgh's pick could be high after the Steelers start the year 0-2 plus Ben Roethlisberger out for the year due to injury. Miami set to have SEVEN picks in the first three rounds next spring. Dolphins GM Chris Grier will be the most important decision-maker in the draft next April.

Brian Flores says Ryan Fitzpatrick is his starting QB vs. Dallas right now. "But after a couple of weeks like that, we're evaluating all positions... We haven't made any final positions yet."

Thoughts on Dolphins snap counts: - Preston Williams inching toward full-time status, might not be long until he's WR1 here. - Kenyan Drake/ Kalen Ballage split was similar to last week ~ 55/40 respectively. - Minkah Fitzpatrick was a full-time player this week and played a lot of FS, which he enjoyed. Was this his last game as a Dolphin after trade request?

Newcomer Brown scores as Patriots beat Dolphins 43-0

Antonio Brown caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in his debut for the New England Patriots, and they scored twice on interception returns in a two-minute fourth-quarter span Sunday to beat the Miami Dolphins, 43-0.

Brian Flores said as of right now Ryan Fitzpatrick remains their starting QB.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Ugly, ugly showing for Dolphins offense which challenged worst performance in franchise history before garbage time stats helped them avoid that. There's not a lot of hope going forward that the offense can turn it around but after three Ryan Fitzpatrick interceptions (including two pick-sixes), it's worth wondering if the team should make a change to Josh Rosen.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins down 13-0 to New England at half but playing a lot better than last week defensively. Brian Flores is having his team come out with a lot more fire this week if you can take a moral victory out of it. Antonio Brown has had early success — 4 catches for 56 yards and a TD, but Dolphins have got a couple of sacks on Tom Brady and held run game in check largely. Miami offense, however, has been stagnant just gaining 51 yards on five drives.
