Tua Tagovailoa contract: reported $40 million per year extension for Dolphins QB leaves fans in splits

Before the season commenced, everyone knew what Miami Dolphins’ franchise QB Tua Tagovailoa was capable of. However, this season has still proved to be a revelation for many of the Dolphins faithful, as they have been amazed by the poise and guile of their young signal-caller.

Now that the playoffs are underway, the franchise front offices have started ideating their goals for the upcoming season, and that includes new and improved contracts for star athletes.

Dolphins reportedly interested in securing Tua Tagovailoa’s long-term future

After his exemplary performances during the regular season, the Miami Dolphins are really interested in granting a much-awaited contract extension to their star man.

After a long time of mediocrity, the Dolphins have finally started looking like their usual selves, and Tagovailoa has played a major role in it throughout the four seasons.

According to Dolphins Talk, Tua’s strength lies in his dead-eye accuracy and innate game awareness and the franchise wants to keep their star for years to come. Although the 25-year-old has had his fair share of altercations with the likes of Patrick Mahomes, the Dolphins management still has complete faith in him and looking forward to locking him down for a long time.

Fans left in splits following playoff slip

While the rumors of building a team around Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill are doing the rounds on social media, some people are still concerned about whether a mammoth contract extension for their franchise QB is the right way to go for the Miami Dolphins.

One user commented, “No one should be surprised. We’ve been wrong on 10 QBs in the last 15 years. We finally draft a kid who leads us to 4 straight winning seasons… back to back playoff appearances. Tua is ONLY 25 years old and has so much more to learn,” expressing his approval of the decision made by the Dolphins’ administration.

Some others were still singing a different tune. One comment read, “Once you pay a qb it gets hard to compete,” showing a lack of complete belief in the skills of Tua Tagovailoa. However, opinions like these were in the minority and should not sway the opinion of the administration.

What are your thoughts on Tua Tagovailoa getting a contract extension? Do you think this is the right step to take for the Miami Dolphins franchise who have desperately clutched at their glorious past for the better part of a decade now? Let us know in the comments below.
