The Miami Dolphins are Tua Tagovailoa’s team.

Despite rampant speculation that Miami is looking to add a quarterback this offseason, sources tell ESPN’s Jeff Darlington the team is content with Tagovailoa.

The former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback looked sharp when healthy in 2022, but he suffered at least two concussions, leading to concern about his health and future in the sport.

Despite those concerns, Darlington says head coach Mike McDaniel has his quarterback in Tagovailoa.

“Mike fully believes Tua is the perfect fit for his system,” a source told Darlington.

This report should lay to rest the rumors that the Dolphins will go after Lamar Jackson, or even Aaron Rodgers. Of course, CBS Sports reported just a few days ago that the Dolphins were considering “all options” at quarterback for 2023.

Frankly, until the Dolphins pick up Tagovailoa’s fifth-year option, it’s tough to know what to believe. The team has until May 1 to make a decision on that option.

The Dolphins still need a quarterback to back up Tagovailoa, as Teddy Bridgewater is set to become a free agent.

NFL fans had mixed feelings on the Tagovailoa news.
