It is in a competitive division as the Buffalo Bills have Josh Allen, the Patriots believe Mac Jones will be better, and the New York Jets grabbed Aaron Rodgers. However, Miami has a quarterback poised to stay healthy and rip through NFL defenses.

Tua Tagovailoa looks different in organized team activities. He appears noticeably bigger and has added more velocity to his passes. The jiu-jitsu training he has done this offseason is helping to prevent concussions, and the muscle he has put on will help him sustain more hits. He is moving well thus far in OTAs for the team as Tagovailoa wants to make a deep run in the playoffs.
