Tua Tagovailoa Comments on Miami Dolphins’ Tom Brady Interest

Tua Talking Tom.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa told reporters last week that he believes the team is “all in” on him even though it was clear they were way more interesting in acquiring Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady. The NFL handed down discipline to Miami for tampering with Brady in 2019 and 2021. Their goal was to persuade Tom Brady to join the Dolphins as a limited partner, football executive and possibly as a player. The league fined Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and limited partner and vice chairman Bruce Beal a combined $2 million and stripped the Dolphins of their 2023 first-round draft pick and 2024 third-round pick in response to the tampering.

Tua’s answer was even more exact Wednesday when asked again about his reaction to the Dolphins Tom Brady infatuation.

“Yeah, I mean, I’m still here,” he said. “To me, that’s all noise at this point.”

“I would say the only thing that gets frustrating is if you hear it every day or if you see it every day,” he said. “For me, I eliminate all of that. Don’t hear it. Don’t see it. I go home, go to my family, study, wake up the next day, come back and enjoy football. I hear everything obviously from the media and then when (the communications staff) preps me for whatever you guys are going to say, then I’m like, ‘Ah, I’ve got to answer this. All right, let me figure out something politically correct to say.’”

Tua Tagovailoa also spoke on getting to chat with Tom Brady:

Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel downplayed the impact of practicing with Brady:

“For me, nothing happened. Everyone else is the one making it awkward,” McDaniel said. “It doesn’t occupy a single iota of space with anybody. It’s hard enough to be good in this league. As the Miami Dolphins, all of our energy is very coordinated and only has to do with us getting better and everything else would be an opportunity cost that we’re not willing to expend.”

It’s always going to be awkward when you try to date someone and things don’t work out.

For Tua it’s quite simple, win and you’ll be fine. Lose a few games out of the gate, and it’s going to get ugly quickly.
