Tua Tagovailoa runs off the field against the Lions

He does not have his team playing in Super Bowl 58 this weekend in Las Vegas, but Tua Tagovailoa is having fun.

The starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins made the Pro Bowl for his efforts in 2023 and could be looking at a contract extension because he proved he could stay healthy for a full season. Tagovailoa, a former No. 5 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, joined music icon Darius Rucker on stage in Las Vegas to sing with him. He sung “Wagon Wheel” with Rucker while playing a guitar to get fans ready for the Super Bowl. Tagovailoa sported shades on stage in performing with Rucker.
