The Miami Dolphins gave Tua Tagovailoa a host of offensive weapons this offseason. The blockbuster Tyreek Hill trade and additions of Cedrick Wilson, Terron Armstead, Chase Edmonds and many more will hopefully give the Dolphins a better offense this season.
Although Hill has remained overwhelmingly positive about Tagovailoa since being traded to Miami, he knows that his young quarterback has a lot to prove. He said on his podcast, “It Needed To Be Said” with Tyreek Hill, that this season is a make-or-break one for Tagovailoa, insisting that the NFL will move on from him if he isn't good.

Hill added, though, that Tagovailoa will prove the doubters wrong. The six-time Pro Bowler said that the Dolphins have a collection of talent that mirrors the explosiveness in the 2019 Kansas City Chiefs offense. He also praised the team's new head coach, Mike McDaniel, for his play-calling abilities.
The Dolphins adding Hill, Armstead, Wilson and other players upgrades their offense, which already features the speedy Jaylen Waddle. Those moves not only help Tagovailoa but they benefit Miami too, in case they have to make a move for a new quarterback. Tagovailoa has proven nothing very little since he was drafted fifth overall in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Miami is looking to get back to the playoffs after sniffing them twice in the past two seasons. McDaniel has a lot of talent to work with but everything comes back to Tua Tagovailoa. His readiness to compete at a high level will reveal whether the team can, too.
