On Tuesday night, the Miami Dolphins released the official jersey numbers for their draft signing class, including former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
And NFLShop.com officially has Tagovailoa’s Miami Dolphins jersey for sale!
Over the past few weeks, many have wondered which number Tagovailoa would pick, especially since his college number, 13, is Dan Marino’s retired Miami number.
Whatever number Tagovailoa wears, there is no doubt that he is a much-needed beacon of hope for a team that has struggled for some time.
Tagovailoa’s status for this season is uncertain as some analysts suggest sitting the quarterback this season to ensure his hip is truly 100%. Over time we will know what the dolphins plan to do. Are they going to sit him down and make sure he’s really 100%, or are they going to play their first pick this season and hope for the best? Only time will tell.
Last season at Alabama, Tagovailoa threw for 2,840 yards, 33 touchdowns and 3 interceptions before a season-ending injury against Mississippi State.
During his career at Alabama, Tagovailoa had 7,442 passing yards, 87 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
