The Dolphins traded defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported.

Miami will reportedly receive a first-round pick and a fifth-round pick in 2020 as well as a 2021 sixth rounder, per the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Pittsburgh will reportedly receive a fourth-round pick in 2020 and a seventh-round pick in 2021 in addition to Fitzpatrick.
