Tua Tagovailoa is a married man, but he is not thrilled about the news being leaked out to the media.
The Miami Dolphins QB was unhappy over the hoopla as he prefers to keep his life off the field private.
“I don’t know who ended up leaking it but he must’ve been camping outside the courthouse for an entire week or something,” the 24-year-old said, adding that it was “kind of disrespectful” how the news got out.
According to court records, Tagovailoa quietly got married in Florida last month by clergy.
The 24-year-old drew laughs from reporters at training camp when asked if marriage has changed his perspective on life or football.
“No girls for me I guess,” he said. “That’s the perspective, but same focus — the season and what we got here at training camp.”
Tagovailoa will look to improve upon his sophomore season in 2022 with what should be a much-improved offense thanks to the addition of Tyreek Hill. Last season, he threw for 2,653 yards with 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 13 games.
“People don’t think I can throw the ball far,” he told reporters Wednesday. “I would say that’s the fascination like wow he can throw the ball… Kind of hard to be [a QB] in the NFL if you can’t throw the ball, right?”
Tagovailoa has since reported to training camp, preparing for the Dolphins’ first regular-season game on Sept. 11.
