Is 2022 Tua Tagovailoa’s last year with the Miami Dolphins?

Tua Tagovailoa is young and relatively affordable enough to be given another year or two of development if he was playing any other position.

The Dolphins are going to need solid quarterback play, and they’re going to need it soon, meaning that the clock is ticking on Tagovailoa’s time in Miami. After a tumultuous start to his career, the front office has surrounded him with the necessary tools to be successful, and it is now on the third-year signal caller’s shoulders to go out and produce.

While a year of setbacks wouldn’t be good for anyone, the Dolphins can “afford” to move on from Tagovailoa after the 2022 season if things don’t go well. Their two first-round picks in the 2023 Draft represent some serious capital for what should be a class full of quarterback talent.

It would be beneficial if Tua proves that he is the guy, but it wouldn’t be a franchise-altering revelation. It would afford Miami the opportunity to use those draft picks to build around Tagovailoa and set themselves up for the future. So whether you’re on the Tua Train or you’ve been a hater since Day 1, all Dolphins fans should be hoping that he is the answer.
