Tua Tagovailoa reveals plan for his $30.3 million contract
Despite still being a rookie in the NFL, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has already laid out plans to secure his financial future. The former Alabama Crimson Tide talent recently signed a four-year rookie contract worth $30.2 million, which includes a $19.6 million signing bonus.
“I’m gonna be living off of my marketing money, so the endorsement money that I get, and then everything else is just put to the side,” he said. “So the money that I’m making from my contract, that’s put to the side, so none of that’s gonna be seen.”
Tagovailoa has also received endorsement deals from several big companies. With this, he has been able to purchase some nice items, including a $1.65 million house near the Dolphins’ facility, an $80,000 Escalade for his mom, and a $10,000 Rolex for his dad.
“I would say I’m happy with what I spent it on,” he said.
Despite being able to secure the bag prior to the season, the Hawaii native has yet to appear in an NFL game thus far. Veteran gunslinger Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to be at the helm for the Dolphins who currently holds a 1-2 record in the early stages of their campaign.
The Miami-based squad lost to division rival New England Patriots on a 21-11 outcome at their home turf to start the season. In the following game, the Dolphins went on to lose a tight encounter to the Buffalo Bills on a 31-28 losing effort.
Fitzpatrick and the rest of the team finally secured their first win of the season via a 31-13 beating dealt with the Jacksonville Jaguars. It is likely that we might only seldomly see Tagovailoa play on the field this season but at least he knows a thing or two about spending his money wisely off the field.
