    as always, depends on cost, but young, good player, those are guys you want to spend stuff on if you have to spend.

    They're probably looking for draft picks for the future, not players.

    I agree 100% King plus our 2nd. Fitzpatrick is a difference maker who can play anywhere in the secondary..including corner. He has a nose for the ball and he been pretty DURABLE..which is the kicker. Can you imagine a secondary with Alexander, Fitz, Savage, And Amos? Your basically going to have to have this type of secondary if you’re going to beat the Patriots. Or Khalil Mack, Von Miller and Demarcus Lawrence as pass rushers.

    Hey who cares. Give it to them. Like I said earlier, you’re almost going to need three pro bowlers I’m the secondary to beat New England in a SB.

    I don’t t think so. Look at our second rd picks over the past 4 drafts? They are all gone except King who probably won’t be resigned anyways due to his health concerns.

    You can't use something to trade for something of value to you, if the other person doesn't have the value in what you're offering. I don't see why Miami would trade him for King. If they were looking for a young cheap talented corner, they have one.

    Where did you see that the Packers are the front runners for him?

    Packers really the front runners here? Where's that at?

    I think I'd be willing to make it happen depending on the costs and everything associated with him of course.

    I'll wait until HRE comes in and breaks down the money aspect of making this happen. They always bring the reality of "yea well this would be nice to have but it is nearly impossible!" So before I get any excited at this possibility, I'll sit on my hands patiently.

    Probably the same dude that gave him the "slam dunk" news on Josh McDaniels. ;)

    Trade Kevin King? A proven, good, CB? No thanks.

    Now, trade a 2nd and Josh Jackson? Hell yes. Honestly, I'd probably trade a 1st.

    Minkah is a PERFECT fit for what Pettine does. Can play in the box. Can play single high. Can play slot CB. He's young, and cheap.

    Problem being....Not sure they'd be interested in trading for a guy that went in the 2nd round of the same draft that Fitzpatrick came out of...that isn't nearly as good. Seems like it'd be counter-intuitive, but I've been wrong many times in my life. Maybe you are on to something.

    He's on a rookie deal, so cost is minimal and shouldn't really factor for the near future in any negative way at all. Cost wise on the cap, it's great to have that talent at that pay grade

    It's an asset plus a draft pick. It's worth something. 2nd round draft picks typically aren't anything to sneeze at.

    I’m gonna be nice, only because it’s Friday.
    Saw something on FB someone posted. We may not necessarily be front runners...but I did see he was requesting a trade, and the Packers are interested. Best I can do for you

    Especially if you draft guys like Josh Jones, Jason Spriggs, Quentin Rollins, And Josh Jackson who can’t seem to even beat out tramon Williams.

    All day Baby!!!! Adding Minkah Fitzpatrick to Jaire and King would be an insanely formidable secondary, especially with Amos & Savage. Whoah! 4 of the 5 players listed there can play virtually any position in the secondary, Fitzpatrick being one of them. PLEASE DO THIS GUTEKUNST!!!!

    Josh is hurt dude.I can't comprehend Packers fans bashing injured players who are working their way back to health. Why diss one of your own guys who you want to be healthy? I mean, if they are turning out to be pieces of ****, yeah, then I can see throwing some high heat, but, not in these cases.

    King played great last week, and Jackson got in the game too after suffering a foot injury in TC. Jackson had more picks than anyone in the NCAA 2017 with 8 INTs, ranked 3rd in INT yds with 168 and 2 TDs. Jackson had 10 PDs for us last season, 46 tackles, 1 TFL and 1 FR. Not bad for a rookie CB learning press man coverage for the first time.

    Why trade King and a 2nd when reports are just a 2nd gets it done?

    Bigger question is why the hell are the Dolphins looking to trade him? Yes the Dolphins are rebuilding but a 2nd year player like him on a rookie contract just seems stupid to trade
