Dolphins Players Raving About Tua Tagovailoa



Tua Tagovailoa

Miami Dolphins players are raving about how rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has looked in practice leading up to his first career start on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

“Obviously throwing, making plays, everything you want in a quarterback” Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams said, according to the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley. “Y’all seen his tape, that speaks for itself. We’re excited that Tua is getting a start just like everybody else I’m excited to see him in his first game action versus the Rams.”

“They don’t draft a quarterback in the first round for no reason” Dolphins defensive end Shaq Lawson said.

“The guys are the future of the program. … I’m just telling [Tagovailoa], work hard and continue to work better. We’re going to follow your lead. Embrace every moment of it Been seeing him, he’s been doing that every day. He’s a guy that always has a smile on his face, great kid. He always wants to talk to vets and learn new things. He learned a lot, he likes to learn too.”

Tua was named the starter last week, over veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, and now takes the reigns for a 3-3 team in the thick of the playoff race, and the AFC East crown.
