Miami Dolphins quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, has dedicated his offseason to improving his performance on the field and becoming a leader in the locker room.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Tagovailoa is currently in excellent health after recovering from multiple concussions last season. Fowler confirms that Tagovailoa’s completed his recovery from his previous concussions: “I was told he’s completely healthy now.”

The quarterback has also been incorporating Jiu-Jitsu techniques into his training regimen to learn how to fall forward and protect his head in the pocket. Notably, the Dolphins have even implemented Jiu-Jitsu workouts for all their quarterbacks before practices, ensuring that they are prepared to protect themselves during falls.

Tagovailoa’s dedication to his physical well-being and innovative training methods have played a role in his return to optimal health.

In addition to his physical progress, Tagovailoa has displayed significant growth as a leader, and has been a “major voice” in OTAs.

During a recent practice, when the offense was performing poorly, he took charge by stopping the entire session and addressing the team. His new willingness to hold his teammates accountable and provide constructive criticism reflects a marked change in Tagovailoa’s leadership style.

Fowler said that this is a role he would not have embraced a few years ago, highlighting his development into a voice within the Miami Dolphins organization.

Tagovailoa previously admitted that he considered retirement due to the physical and mental toll that the previous season took on him. Having experienced several concussions last season, he contemplated stepping away from football.

However, after consulting with medical professionals and specialists, he received assurances that he is not at a higher risk of future concussions or developing CTE.

With Tagovailoa’s restored health, improved leadership qualities, and impressive on-field performance, the Miami Dolphins have the potential to become contenders for the Super Bowl in the AFC.

As the new season approaches, fans eagerly anticipate witnessing the continued growth and success of Tua Tagovailoa as he leads the Dolphins on their journey to victory.
