As the National Football League’s most explosive wide receiver, Hill has compliment Tagovailoa’s accuracy, ball placement, and timing as a signal-caller. He defended his quarterback, despite the critics, and he did it again on Thursday. The Dolphins posted a video on its Twitter profile of Tagovailoa throwing a pass to Hill. Critics quickly attacked Tagovailoa’s arm strength, stating the pass was underthrown and calling him “noodle arm.” One critic said Miami would have been off drafting Justin Herbert.

Several sports talk shows, including Undisputed, had critiques of the “underthrow” in the clip. Hill clapped back at Tagovailoa’s critics with a video of his quarterback dropping dimes to each receiver in practice. Tagovailoa put every pass on target in Hill’s clip, including one to Hill himself. The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder has four 1,000-yard seasons since entering the league in 2016.

Hill has three 1,200+ yard seasons, including a career-high 1,479 yards receiving in 2018. The six-time Pro Bowl selection, three-time All-Pro (first team), NFL 2010s All-Decade Team member, and Super Bowl champion believes in Tagvovailoa.

Jaylen Waddle, Tagovailoa’s teammate at Alabama, quote tweeted Hill’s post with the caption, “Right in the Bread Basket.”

Miami has the NFL world where it wants it. Tagovailoa enters year three with much to prove, but he is excited.
