Tua Tagovailoa’s Parents Set Record Straight: There’s Nothing Shaking For Tom Brady In Miami

Miami Dolphins star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was on an MVP trajectory this last season, until the unfortunate side of the business reared its ugly head. The former Alabama Crimson Tide star suffered a reported three concussions this past season, the last of which caused him to miss the final couple of regular season games, including a 34-31 wild card loss to the Bills. Prior to his last concussion, questions about Tagovailoa’s future have arisen, with many believing the gunslinger should retire to protect his health.

Will Tom Brady Replace Tagovailoa In Miami?

But Tagovailoa’s parents are doing their best to quell any notion that their son won’t be under center in South Beach next season.

In a recent interview with KOHN News in Honolulu, the parents had this to say.

“Oh, he comes back,” Galu Tagovailoa told Rob DeMello and Alan Hoshida of the news outlet. “He comes back. That’s their guy, you know what I’m saying? l mean, they love him. We love them and what they’re doing — how they’re helping with his recovery and everything else. Trying to get him back.”

They also said their son is “going through” concussion protocol in an effort to get back to himself.

With future Hall of Famer Tom Brady a free agent, and not expected to return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the belief is the Dolphins could be a landing spot for him. It’s well documented that Fins owner Stephen M. Ross wanted to acquire Brady last winter, but the flirtation with the seven-time Super Bowl winner goes back to 2019.

With Brady available and Tua’s health still in question, some believe Brady joining the Dolphins could happen.

With the new league year beginning in March, anything can happen. As pertains to Tagovailoa, the Dolphins have until May to either exercise or decline the fifth-year option on his rookie deal.

While Brady hasn’t decided if he’ll play or retire, the potential is there for the Dolphins to pull the trigger. Brady was recently seen visiting a prominent Miami school for his children, adding to the speculation. But he and ex-wife Gisele Bündchen both have residency in South Beach, so that could be the reason for the school visit.

Miami Dolphins Should Stick With Tagovailoa

Prior to his unfortunate string of concussions, Tagovailoa was having an MVP-type season. Even with time missed the lefty finished with over 3,500 yards passing, 25 touchdowns and just eight interceptions.

He was the most accurate passer in the league with passes at 20 yards downfield, further proving his elite deep-ball accuracy.

He’s also under team control for at least two more seasons, and then it could be two franchise tag seasons if the two sides can’t come to an amicable agreement. That allows other parts of the team to be filled out.

As for Brady, he’ll be 46 once the 2023 season gets underway, and if 2022 showed you anything, “Father Time” has finally caught up to him.
