According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Miami Dolphins and former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa have finally come to an agreement of a four year deal.

The deal is a four year $30.28 million deal with a fifth year team option along with a signing bonus of $19.6 million. And every dollar on the contract will be fully guaranteed per Ian Rapoport.

The Dolphins spent the fifth pick of the 2020 NFL Draft on Tagovailoa following one of the most impressive careers in Alabama and college football history.

In his three seasons with the Crimson Tide, Tagovailoa threw for 7,442 yards, 87 touchdowns to just 11 interceptions, completed 69.3 percent of his throws and had a quarterback rating of 199.4.

Although he has had a history of injury in his college days, judging by the current makeup of the contract it shows that the Dolphins have the upmost confidence that Tagovailoa is fully healthy and will be taking the field for them sometime in the near future.
