The Miami Dolphins are hoping to get the rights to a future first-round pick and hope to use Minkah Fitzpatrick as trade bait. Unfortunately, pundits feel that offering the 22-year-old defensive back alone may not hook them one unless the Dolphins sweeten the pot.

According to the Miami Herald, it appears the 2018 first-round pick of the Dolphins has grown unhappy with his role in the team. He already got permission to talk with other teams and there are some reportedly interested in getting him.

There are reportedly at least five teams interested in getting Fitzpatrick although the name of these teams was not divulged. All that is except for one team - the Dallas Cowboys. It appears that they are interested in the 22-year-old player but nothing has progressed, Pro Football Talk reported.

Critics feel that the Dolphins may be way over their heads if they can get a first-round pick (and more) for Fitzpatrick. Regardless, Miami is allegedly confident that some team will bite as the Dolphins continue efforts to rebuild the team.

The belief is that Fitzpatrick could be dealt within the week. Some feel that the Cowboys are likely the landing spot and it could happen before next Sunday. So far, the only player Dallas seems to be interested in dealing with is Vidaunte Charlton. The 28th pick of the 2017 NFL Draft has been a bust fro the Cowboys and Dallas is expected to deal him out soon. Would a move to the Dolphins be among them?

With the woeful performance of the 24-year-old the past years, the Dolphins are likely to want more than just Charlton. Adding a pick is one but more sweeteners may be needed to get this deal done.

It the Cowboys are serious about getting Fitzpatrick, they need to move fast. The fact that there are other teams interested in taking in the 11th pick of the 2018 NFL Draft means Fitzpatrick will be dealt with the team that offers the best package. The free safety remains a Dolphin for now and will likely suit up this Sunday against the New England Patriots.
