  • Tua Tagovailoa Doesn't Plan On Holding Out

    Headshot for Tua Tagovailoa

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa reiterated that he will not hold out as he looks for a long-term contract extension and plans on attending voluntary organized team activities this spring. The Dolphins are saying that they prefer to extend Tagovailoa, but as things stand now, the 26-year-old former first-rounder is set to play the 2024 season on the fifth-year option from his rookie deal. Despite leading the NFL with 4,624 passing yards while throwing a career-high 29 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 2023 in his fourth year in the league, Tagovailoa was only the QB9 at the end of the year in fantasy points because of his lack of rushing at the position. As long as he has receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle to throw to, Tagovailoa will be on the midrange to low-end QB1 map, but his overall upside is lacking.

  • Dolphins Agree To Terms With Aaron Brewer

    The Miami Dolphins agreed to terms on Monday with former Tennessee Titans center Aaron Brewer on a three-year deal worth $21 million, according to a source. Brewer, who started 40 of the 58 games he played in over his four seasons with the Titans since 2020, will take over for Connor Williams as the Dolphins' starting center in 2024 and beyond. The 26-year-old will join an offense that ranked sixth in rushing offense while helping running back Raheem Mostert go off for a career year. Brewer excels in run-blocking, which is more good news for Miami's RBs, but he's had issues in pass protection, which could be bad news for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Williams started the majority of the games at center for the Dolphins last year before tearing the ACL in his knee in early December.

  • Dolphins Have Questions On Their Offensive Line

    The Miami Dolphins have questions up and down their offensive line this offseason, both in terms of their starting lineup and depth. It's unclear if star left tackle Terron Armstead will retire or return in 2024. It's unclear if the team can afford to bring back 26-year-old Connor Williams (knee), who is arguably the best center set to hit the free-agent market and is also coming off a torn ACL. Guard Robert Hunt is also eligible for free agency. The Athletic's Jim Ayello writes that addressing an offensive line charged with protecting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and opening lanes for their strong rushing attack is one of the biggest challenges that the Dolphins have this offseason in free agency and in the NFL draft.

  • Dolphins Hope To Extend Tua Tagovailoa This Offseason

    Headshot for Tua Tagovailoa

    Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said he "absolutely" hopes to get a long-term contract extension done with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa this offseason. Tagovailoa is currently set to play the 2024 season under his fifth-year option unless the two sides can agree on an extension this offseason. The 25-year-old led the NFL in passing yards with 4,624, although his lack of rushing prowess has held him back from being among the elite QBs in both real life and fantasy. But Miami's offense was among the most explosive in the league last year, and Tagovailoa should continue to have a stable floor as at least a low-end QB1 as long as receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are around. It would be a surprise if the Dolphins and Tua didn't agree on an extension this offseason.

    Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is under club control through 2024 by virtue of the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, but he anticipates being with the team for the foreseeable future. When asked at a Pro Bowl practice last week if he believes he and Miami will ultimately come to terms on a long-term deal, […]

  • Tua Tagovailoa Expects To Sign Extension This Offseason

    Headshot for Tua Tagovailoa

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who is coming off a career-best year in 2023, expects to sign a long-term contract extension with the team this offseason, he told reporters on Friday. "There's been communication," Tagovailoa. "I think the thing with that right now is I'm just letting the team talk to my agent and let them work that out." He is entering the final year of his rookie deal in 2024 after leading the NFL with 4,624 passing yards while also setting career-highs with 29 touchdown passes and 17 games played. It was the first time he played in a full season in his four-year career. The Dolphins brass has long been supportive of him publicly and picked up his fifth-year option last year. The fact that the Dolphins are around $51 million over the salary cap entering the offseason with critical decisions to make on other star players on the team makes extending Tagovailoa a bit more tricky.

  • Could Dolphins Consider Trading Tua Tagovailoa?

    Headshot for Tua Tagovailoa

    The Athletic's Mike Sando discusses a couple different options the Miami Dolphins have with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who is heading into the final year of his rookie deal in 2024. The most palatable option could be trading him for someone like Vikings QB Kirk Cousins and some draft picks. "Your upside with Tua certainly seems limited," an executive said, "so let's say you can trade him. I would be exploring, 'OK, Tua, we can win games with, probably not winning a championship with. Kirk Cousins, we can win games with, probably not winning a championship with. But our resources are better spent on Cousins plus draft picks than they are on just Tua." The most logical option could be to let him play out his fifth-year option and potentially go the franchise-tag route. "He is at the level of quarterback that is hard to commit to," another executive said. "But it becomes really tricky when you start betting against your quarterback like that."

  • Dolphins Want To Keep Tua Tagovailoa Around Long Term

    Headshot for Tua Tagovailoa

    Miami Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said on Monday that the goal is to have quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in Miami for the long term. Tagovailoa has one year remaining on his rookie deal, and Grier said the team will continue to communicate with him and his representation in the offseason. The 25-year-old is due for a long-term contract extension after two excellent seasons the last two years, but the problem for the Dolphins is that they are projected to be around $40 million over the 2024 salary cap, so giving Tagovailoa an extension will likely come at the cost of other important pieces on the team. After concussion issues in 2022, Tagovailoa played in all 17 regular season games in 2023 and led the league with 4,624 passing yards while throwing a career-high 29 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The first-time Pro Bowler will be a solid midrange QB1 target in fantasy this fall.

  • Tua Tagovailoa Remains Confident After Loss To Chiefs

    Headshot for Tua Tagovailoa

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa isn't worried about a contract extension and remains confident in himself after a 26-7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the playoffs as he heads into the final year of his rookie deal. "I don't feel any pressure at all. I have full trust in myself," Tagovailoa said. "I have full trust in what I'm capable of doing for our organization, but outside of that we're focusing on tonight and what happened, we're going to simmer on this and see what we can do to get better from it." After dealing with two concussions in 2022, he started all 17 games for Miami in 2023 and led the NFL in passing yards (4,624) while setting career-highs in passing yards, touchdowns (29) and completion percentage (69.3), so despite the disappointing finish, the 25-year-old should be a strong QB1 option once the elite names come off the board in fantasy drafts this fall.
