Radio host says Dolphins should extend QB Tua Tagovailoa

Tua Tagovailoa proved two things last year in the fourth season with the Miami Dolphins.

He showed he can avoid injuries for a whole year and be one of the top passers in the National Football League.

Tagovailoa did not sustain any head/neck injuries, and led the league for passing yards (4,624). He guided the Dolphins to the AFC playoffs, made his first NFL Pro Bowl, and ranked in the top 10 in several passing categories. Tagovailoa finished tied for fifth in the league for touchdown passes (29). Miami did not have a deep playoff run; however, Tagovailoa displayed excellence with talented around him. The additions of Jaylen Waddle, Tyreek Hill, and Terron Armstead helped him be a better quarterback.

Also, having Mike McDaniel as a head coach improved his confidence. Some are asking the question on if Tagovailoa has done enough to earn a contract extension. Miami picked up his fifth-year option, but he concluded his four-year rookie deal in 2023.

Are the Dolphins ready to commit long-term to the native Hawaiian? Craig Carton, a radio host for the Craig Carton Show, says Miami should extend Tagovailoa. He feels there are 20 teams right now that would trade for Tagovailoa and would not blink.

A deal should get done between the Dolphins and the former Alabama quarterback, but we will have to see when.
