It’s been an up-and-down season for Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. But hey, that’s the way it always seem to go with young QBs.
And the Dolphins aren’t the least bit bothered by it, if you ask general manager Chris Grier.
“Tua, I’m very happy with. He’s our starting quarterback,” Grier told reporters. “I thought Tua did a great job of working himself through the whole process.”
The left-handed Tagovailoa appeared in 10 games this season, throwing 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. He was pulled as starter in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick on several occasions, but the Dolphins aren’t looking to draft anyone to take his spot, according to Grier.
That should make this draft very interesting, because the Dolphins own the Houston Texans’ pick, which is third overall. If the Dolphins really don’t want a QB, they may be able to deal the draft pick for some immediate help at a different position.
Miami finished 10-6 but failed to make the playoffs.
