“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.
