The Miami Dolphins locked in Tua Tagovailoa to return as their quarterback next season. The team recently picked up the promising quarterback’s 5th-year option, guaranteeing him a $23.2 million contract this year. While some thought that the team would take the opportunity to show their allegiance to their quarterback and give him a long extension, this deal makes the most sense for the Dolphins.
Last season, Tagovailoa suffered a handful of head injuries that scared the NFL as a whole. Doctors recommended that he never play football again due to the head trauma he has already suffered in his short football career, however, with there being generation wealth on the table, Tua decided to keep pushing on and chasing his dreams.
Due to these injury concerns, it would not make sense for Miami to give him a multi-year deal that would put them in a very tough cap situation. If they were to have done this, it would have been almost impossible for the team to pull off the Jalen Ramsey trade.
If Tua can get through this season without any new concerning injuries and continue to put his talent on full display, he should be in line to an enormous payday next offseason.
