Tua Tagovailoa expected to be Dolphins starting QB next season

As the Miami Dolphins headed into the playoffs, plenty of questions surrounded quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s future.

The Alabama product is sidelined indefinitely after suffering a third concussion late in the regular season. Despite all that, the Dolphins are reportedly expected to bring back Tagovailoa for the 2023 season.

Much of the attention will lay on his health, especially after suffering a string of three separate concussions in less than two months. All that has created significant outside noise that Tagovailoa should consider stepping into retirement to avoid another significant head injury.

Since his second recorded concussion, the Dolphins strayed away from putting the 24-year-old back on the field. The organization’s primary concern lies with giving Tagovailoa enough time to fully recover from the sensitive injury that they mismanaged after the first instance.

Miami has dealt with plenty of criticism as a result of their quarterback sustaining multiple concussions. The franchise will move forward methodically to avoid any setbacks or additional health issues from arising.

Tagovailoa is heading into the final year of his four-year, $30.2 million rookie contract, including a possible fifth-year option. There remains uncertainty about whether the Dolphins will pick up the option due to the lingering health risks.

Miami may move to secure a stable backup quarterback to maintain a safety net if Tagovaila experiences any other issues down the line. The team may keep the combination of rookie Skylar Thompson and Teddy Bridgewater in that spot behind him.

If everything remains on course, Tagovailoa will resume his NFL career in 2023.
