If you’re a Miami Dolphins fan who has been dreaming of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa as your franchise quarterback, you are certainly not alone.
The Tagovailoa family is making it publicly known that they would prefer Tua has his talents taken to Miami.
One things for sure, Tua does not want to play for the Detroit Lions.
Via Miami Herald:
“Sources close to Tagovailoas say the Alabama quarterback would love for the Dolphins to trade up to No. 3 to select him. Those same sources say they don’t love the idea of Detroit actually picking Tua because of the arc of that team’s current coaching situation.
The Lions will be playing their third season under Matt Patricia in 2020. He has a 9-22-1 record his first two seasons and the Tagovailoas are concerned another poor season could force the Lions to fire Patricia — putting the quarterback in the uncertain 2021 situation of being a draft pick the new coach didn’t make.”
The Dolphins currently hold the No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, but they do have two more first-rounders and a pair of 2nd-round picks in their back pocket.
Tua just might be the man to rejuvenate a franchise in the Dolphins.
