Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle’s prediction for Tua Tagovailoa in 2022 season will hype up Miami fans
The talk of the town revolving around the Miami Dolphins continues to be set on whether Tua Tagovailoa will end up emerging as the franchise’s next formidable quarterback. From Jaylen Waddle’s standpoint, he sees that the best is still yet to come for Tagovailoa.
During an appearance on Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill’s “It Needed to be Said” podcast, Waddle was asked by the six-time Pro Bowl wideout to provide a comparison between Tagovailoa last season and how he “looks” heading into the upcoming 2022 campaign. Waddle predicted that the former Alabama Crimson Tide passer is going to “show out.”
“I ain’t gonna lie, that boy looks scary right now,” Waddle said. “I’m not gonna sugarcoat, it’s been him. He’s been that guy since Alabama. He’s been that guy. He’s been the same guy. He’s gonna come in consistent, accurate, he’s gonna make the throws he’s supposed to, he’s going to show out and be a great leader. He’s gonna be all that.
“I’m not seeing no big – the plays he be making in practice, I’ve been seeing. But it’s like, I’m gonna be happier when everybody else gets to see it. When everybody else gets to see what I already know. I’m just excited for that. Not even for me, but for him.”
Tagovailoa was a regular participant in the Dolphins’ OTAs and mandatory minicamp programs. He not only continued to build quality chemistry with Waddle, but he also touched base with Hill for the first time in Miami.
Overall, Dolphins general manager Chris Grier went all out to surround Tagovailoa with keen talents on offense over the opening months of the NFL offseason, from coming to terms with offensive tackle Terron Armstead on a five-year contract agreement to rejuvenating the running backs group by signing Chase Edmonds to a two-year deal. Much attention sure will be on Tagovailoa and if he can get the best out of the team’s stout offensive playmakers in the coming season.
Tagovailoa is set to next get a chance to work with the Dolphins’ newest additions on offense later this month at the start of the team’s training camp schedule.
