Tua Tagovailoa: Future in Miami looking murkier

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said Monday, after the firing of coach Brian Flores, that a decision on whether or not to stick with Tagovailoa under center will be up to the next coaching staff, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Ross said he "has a lot of confidence" in Tagovailoa, per Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network, but he also noted that it will be up to the next head coach to make a decision about the Dolphins' starting quarterback for 2022. When asked, Ross said he currently has "no plans" to pursue Deshaun Watson this offseason, per Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, but the fact that non-commmital langauge is being used to describe Tagovailoa's job security after a coaching change would seem to speak volumes. Prior to the 2021 in-season trade deadline, Miami reportedly pursued a potential deal involving Watson. Meanwhile, Tagovailoa finished with an uninspiring 17:10 TD:INT ratio and 2,762 passing yards across 14 appearances in his sophomore season, and he only reached the 300-yard mark through the air on one occasion. That said, he did showcase solid chemistry with rookie first-round pick Jaylen Waddle, and battle through both rib injuries and unreliable O-line play.
