Tua Tagovailoa has had his name in the headlines a lot in the 2021 offseason, and most of the time it likely wasn’t something all too positive. Whether it be trade rumors or critics calling him a bust, it hasn’t been the prettiest scene for a young quarterback trying to find his footing in the league.

Well, during his few preseason appearances, the criticism has started to dissipate, as he looks like a completely different quarterback.

However, the trade rumors are beginning to heat back up.

The Miami Dolphins coaching staff has taken a strong stance with the media: Tua Tagovailoa is the Miami quarterback for the 2021 season. They are dedicated to helping him grow and become the franchise star they hoped for when he was drafted No. 5 overall.
