Tua Tagovailoa Says He’ll Live On Endorsement Money

Dolphins rookie Tua Tagovailoa said in an interview with GQ that he won’t spend a cent of his $30 million contract and live off endorsements. We aren’t sure how to take this since most of us send every cent of our paychecks to our landlords.

“I’m gonna be living off my marketing money, so the endorsement money that I get, and then everything else I’ll just put to the side,” Tagovailoa said.

The rookie did make a few purchases after Draft Day that included a $1.65 million home near the Dolphins’ practice facility, an $80,000 Cadillac Escalade for his mom and a $10,000 Rolex for dad.

Not many 22-year-olds save in this country and it’s especially impressive when you don’t necessarily have to. Seemingly a family oriented guy, so his decision to save shouldn’t shock anybody. We will say if he’s spending time with GQ, he better get it rolling with the endorsements!

Cheers to an athlete we can bet won’t be on a Netflix special on how he went broke.

  1. He better don’t know how long he will stay healthy college certainly wasn’t encouraging seems a bit on the fragile side last time i saw him he was being carted off the field broken hip time will tell. I believe he is Samoan and i have known some and they are good family oriented people and the national felon league can certainly use some of good character.
