Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa Getting In Off-Site Work With Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa might be skipping chunks of the voluntary offseason program, but he's still getting in work with Miami Dolphins teammates.

Just because Tua Tagovailoa hasn’t been working full-time at Miami Dolphins HQ this spring doesn’t mean he hasn’t been working with his guys.

And by the looks of it, he’s lifting up his little brother in the process.

Miami Dolphins’ Tua Tagovailoa, Receivers Working Off-Site

A new viral video hit social media Thursday of what appeared to be Tagovailoa and his brother Taulia working on routes and timing with Dolphins receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle at a local park.

While it wasn’t clear exactly when the video was shot, it’s definitely from this offseason. How do we know this? Tagovailoa has full-sleeve tattoos on both arms, a new development for 2024.

In the 33-second video, Tagovailoa first is shown explaining to Taulia when and where to best deliver a pass to maximize yards-after-catch as Hill and Waddle looked on.

The next two edits show Hill and Waddle running stop routes, catching the ball, and then moving upfield. And then the final cut is of Hill giving Taulia some instructions before running yet another pattern.

What does this mean? That Tagovailoa shouldn’t have much rust when Dolphins OTA practices resume next week — assuming he’ll be there.

He has sat out a significant chunk of the first two phases of the team’s offseason program as a contract negotiation tactic and also missed at least one day of OTAs this week to attend Nick Saban’s charity golf tournament.

The Dolphins close out OTAs next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday and then reconvene on June 4 for the first of three straight mandatory minicamp practices. If Tagovailoa misses minicamp without permission, he is subject to a fine.

Tua attended Monday’s OTA practice, and Dolphins receiver Braxton Berrios later said that he looked “great. Obviously very comfortable in the offense, commanding things, and just as accurate as ever.”

Berrios added: “I think we do a good job of all getting together whether it’s football or not. Whether it’s golf, we all try to get together and really build camaraderie and chemistry outside of the building as well.”
