Questions surrounding Tua Tagovailoa will be going on all season long after the Miami Dolphins went out and got him a weapon in Tyreek Hill. The dynamic WR is now taking his talents away from Patrick Mahomes and bringing them to Tua Tagovailoa.
That is a major downgrade, and according to Hill, he pretty much thought the same thing as well.
Hill surprisingly admitted that he had pretty low expectations for Tagovailoa upon joining the Dolphins in an offseason trade. However, Hill made clear that the quarterback delivers “one of the prettiest balls I’ve ever caught.”
“At first, I thought it was going to be something crazy, the ball going all over the place,” Hill said, “but Tua actually has probably one of the prettiest balls I’ve ever caught in my life. It’s very catchable. I don’t want to continue because the more I talk, the more it sounds weird. Tua is a very accurate quarterback. That’s all I’m going to say.”
“I just feel like football is all about confidence and I’m very confident in my quarterback,” Hill said. “So I just feel like if I’m able to help him get all the confidence in the world and push other guys to push that confidence into him, then the sky’s the limit for the guy because he’s a heck of a talent, has crazy arm strength, arm talent.”
Hill told reporters during his introductory news conference in March that he knew Tua was “one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the NFL.”
For his sake he better be because Miami traded five draft picks, including first and second-round picks in the 2022 draft, to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for Hill back in March. They then signed him to the most lucrative contract in NFL history for a wide receiver — a four-year, $120 million extension with $72 million guaranteed.
