It’s safe to say Steelers new safety Minkah Fitzpatrick is excited to be playing for a team not named the Dolphins.
Fitzpatrick forced his way out of Miami by demanding a trade, and he got it, with Pittsburgh acquiring the stud safety to shore up defending the middle of the field. It was well known that that was the Steelers’ main weakness, with communication and coverage issues, so they addressed that need via trade.
And the move is already paying dividends.
Fitzpatrick showed off his football IQ in his first game with the Steelers, reading the play perfectly and coming up with an interception off a tipped pass.
He later forced a fumble as well.
Minkah is a playmaker for sure.
