According to La Canfora, offers are still being made to the Dolphins, but a trade is “likely to be wrapped up by tomorrow.”
Last night, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reported that the Cowboys have dropped out of the running for Fitzpatrick and would “have to do much work to make up the ground they’ve lost” to three other teams.
Salguero mentioned that Miami is “certain” to get a first-round pick in return for the former first-round pick and they’re also confident they might be able to get an extra piece of compensation included in the trade.
Fitzpatrick has been unhappy with his current situation for some time and recently received permission from the Dolphins to seek out a trade with another team.
Fitzpatrick, 22, is a former first-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2018. He’s currently int he second year of his four-year, $16,509,174 contract that included a $10,086,672 signing bonus.
Fitzpatrick is owed base salaries of $1,227,626 and $1,975,252. His contract includes a fifth-year option to be picked up for the 2022 season.
In 2019, Fitzpatrick had appeared in two games for the Dolphins and recorded 12 tackles, a forced fumble and a recovery.
