    It has been reported that Miami Dolphins are not denying they are allowing cornerback safety Fitzpatrick's agent to seek trade. While not actively seeking a trade the team has been moving players As We Know from our recent trade for Tunsil. He played multi-positions Alabama but was considered one of the better cornerbacks. I'm not sure if we have trade bait Miami would be interested in but I would like to have this young player. Thoughts?

    2018 rookie season, 80 tackles two interceptions-1 TD mostly playing strong safety. He is 22 years old and in the second year of a 4 year deal. $4 m cap hit with 5th year option as 1.11 in draft. Perhaps O'Brien could make a better trade offer this time.

    Would save our dwindling draft capital for a more legit slot or outside CB and kick Roby inside. 4.46 is more safety speed. Good player but not quite our need in my book. He is versatile so we would like him I suspect. Reminds me of Kareem, good, not great, in between size and speed

    So Minkah's not on the Texans and there's no actual talk of him coming to Houston?

    Yes this could (should) be moved to the NFL section

    Why move it? We had pages and pages of trade talks with Miami and Washington concerning tunsil and Clowney in this Texans section. There is a need for a cornerback on Houston's roster as there was for a left tackle. Example thread by wolf trading for WR.

    Because we were discussing a Texans player being traded to either of those two organizations, along with the players that could be gained in the trades, as was most of the national media.

    I'm cool with moving the thread but did we not talk about trading for Washington Trent Williams with draft picks before we made the trade for tunsil? Also trading for Minkah could and probably would involve current Texans. Trade Lonnie Johnson and two 3rds for Minkah.

    Fair point. Maybe I missed it, but I couldn't find any threads started just to talk about Trent Williams, and the Tunsil threads were created after the trade.

    Wasn't counterpointing though, just providing some insight. We got mods now to keep us in our lanes. :kitten:

    Not the first time I've heard Minkah's name mentioned with the Texans, though I cant remember where. I'm not sure it's in our best interest to use our dwindling (and missing) resources on someone who isn't an ideal fit at need position. Starting Corner or Right Tackle, sure, but hybrid safety is someone I feel we can pass on.

    I think he was mentioned as a possibility in a clowney trade with Miami.

    Everything I've read about him is great. Can play slot very well but can also move all over.

    Won't be cheap. Doesn't become a free agent until 2023.

    Is he just a hybrid safety? Serious question. Haven’t kept up with him since draft.

    I read that Miami wanted him to learn 6 positions this off-season, including 2 LB spots. He is very upset by that. Wasn't sure if he should bulk up or lose weight. It hampered his ability to grow as a player this off-season.

    and what waste space the Trent Williams thread was at the end of the day? A ton of people hoping that Williams was to be traded when Washington still hasn't shown one bit of interest in trading Trent at all.

    If we are reestablishing the board's standards, trade speculation went in the NFL section exactly for the Trent Williams thread.

    My post was a guiding one for both mod and non-mod.

    Just my evaluation but he is real deal as a corner & why he wants out of Miami. He would be better than any we could draft in second round.

    Y’all can keep going back or we can go forward from here. Let’s be the example.

    But posters around here have such a hard on for draft picks.

    Minkah is very talented and if it cost a 2020 2nd which would mean that there wouldn't be a 1st/2nd rd pick for the next 2 yrs I can only imagine the stupidity some posters would show in this thread.
