Ryan Clark is going to regret what he said about Tua Tagovailoa on live television.
On NFL Live, the former NFL player openly fat-shamed the Miami Dolphins quarterback while pointing out he spent more time in a tattoo parlor than the gym or listening to his nutritionist.
He also stated he is built like a girl that works in Onyx Gentlemen’s Club in Atlanta while stating he is “thick.”
In an attempt to deal with the concussions that spoiled his 2022 NFL season, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa used offseason training to become bigger and stronger and jiu-jitsu lessons to learn how to fall safely.
His new look and transformation included a tattoo.
Tagovailoa talked about the significance of his new body art earlier this year.
“It’s something that falls off a piece that I had earlier this year,” Tagovailoa said. “It’s a piece that represents my first child. There’s a lot of things that go on behind it, a lot of cultural significance, a lot of things that has to do with protection, guidance, sort of things like that that we believe in the Samoan culture, so that’s what it is.
“And then we implemented this piece (on the left wrist) that I already had with this, so it’s almost like when you pray you take it off. It kind of has the sense of you’re taking part of the tribal out of this side.”
I think it’s safe to say that Tua won’t appreciate these comments from Clark.
The Dolphins are working toward their 2023 season opener on Sept. 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Last season when Tagovailoa led the NFL in passing-efficiency rating, Miami had an 8-3 record with a healthy Tagovailoa and a 1-6 mark in the games that he missed or sustained a concussion.
Tagovailoa missed the Dolphins’ final two regular-season games and a 34-31 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the AFC playoffs after entering the NFL’s concussion protocol in late December.
