If you’re not going to believe Tom Brady when he says he’s not about to return to football because he has new kittens, maybe you’ll believe that he’s at least not going to join the Miami Dolphins.
Brady announced his retirement on February 1, and no one seems to think he’s done. Recent rumors have surfaced tying him to the Dolphins, prompting the former quarterback to issue a denial of sorts. However, it appears that Miami doesn’t have plans to sign any top-rated QBs as they have decided to pick up Tua Tagovailoa’s fifth-year option.
That is according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who reports that the team is guaranteeing the signal-caller’s salary for 2024, which suggests he’s their man.
While there are concerns over Tua’s health following his concussion issues last season, the QB showed remarkable improvement and did just about enough to get his team into the playoffs before his season ended.

The Dolphins have also just seen Daniel Jones sign a deal worth around $40 million with the New York Giants, who declined to pick up his fifth-year option. By locking Tua up for $23.4 million, they’re going to pay him a lot less than the going rate for starting QBs nowadays.
While cut-price, the move is still risky for Miami as the sum is fully guaranteed. Ordinarily, this would have been a no-brainer, except this is a player who has suffered serious head injuries and there are questions over whether he should even continue playing football.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
