He will enter the fall healthy, but Tua Tagovailoa has something to prove.

The native Hawaiian was in conversations for Most Valuable Player of the National Football League for the Miami Dolphins before suffering multiple concussions. He finished twelfth for passing yards (3,548), tied for eighth in passing touchdowns (25), third for quarterback rating (68.8), and first for passer rating (105.5) in 13 games last year. Tagovailoa defeated Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen in 2022. He put on a show against Jackson, totaling a career-high 469 passing yards and six scores versus the Baltimore Ravens. He was dominant when healthy, but the NFL is undervaluing Tagovailoa. According to a social media post by the league, Tagovailoa got egregiously left off the top AFC quarterbacks list. The list had Patrick Mahomes, Jackson, Joe Burrow, Allen, Trevor Lawrence, and Justin Herbert. Aaron Rodgers, a newcomer to the AFC for the New York Jets, also made the post.

Tagovailoa is a humble man, but he is also a fierce competitor.

He looks to continue what he started in 2022, putting the league on notice of his abilities as a quarterback.
