Ask and you shall receive.
After requesting a trade away from the Dolphins (0-2), talented defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick is on the move. The Steelers (0-2), who just received news that Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) would miss the entire season, gave away their 2020 first-round pick for him.
Now, the Dolphins have three upcoming first-round picks.

Hilariously, Dolphins corner Xavien Howard, who signed a lucrative extension with Miami in the offseason, tweeted this out shortly after news broke:
As of Monday night, the Dolphins were listed as 21-point Week 3 road underdogs against the Cowboys. Things could continue to be very ugly for this Dolphins team that is overtly tanking, which could present some historic lines in the near future.
