Tua Tagovailoa was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. That means he’s been in the league for only one season, and he’s already unsure which city he’ll be in once training camp begins.
During a segment on The Dan Patrick Show on Monday, Tagovailoa confirmed that he’s uncertain about his future in Miami. When asked about being mentioned in the Deshaun Watson trade talks, this is what the former Alabama quarterback had to say:
“That’s something I can’t control. I don’t have any control over those trade deals and whatnot. But for me, my job is to help our team win games and to help our offense contribute to the success of the team.”
When Patrick joked about whether he should wait until August to buy a Miami Dolphins jersey of Tua, Tagovailoa continued with more of the same.
“Well, honestly, I’m not too sure,” Tagovailoa said with a laugh. “Like I said, I can’t control things that I can’t control. What I can do is continue to work hard.”
It’s been a difficult rookie season for Tagovailoa, and the offseason doesn’t look like it’s going to be any easier. These questions are going to keep coming — at least until the 2021 Draft takes place in April. So Tagovailoa better get used to it.
