Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been making headlines this summer, not just for his dedication to improving his performance on the field but also for his fresh new look.
The star quarterback recently unveiled a striking full-sleeve arm tattoo on his right arm, and the Dolphins couldn’t resist sharing the pictures on their official Twitter account.
Amidst the buzz about his new ink, it’s worth noting that Tua’s future with the Dolphins seems secure. Earlier this year, the team exercised the fifth-year option on his contract, guaranteeing him an impressive $23.2 million for the 2024 season.

The 2022 season was a challenging one for Tua, who faced multiple head injuries, including two instances in the NFL’s concussion protocol. These injuries sparked concerns among fans and pundits, with some even suggesting he should consider retiring.
However, the resilient 25-year-old quarterback appeared in 13 games during the season, demonstrating his determination to lead the team to success.
Throughout the season, Tua showcased his skills on the field, throwing for an impressive 3,548 yards and 25 touchdowns with just eight interceptions.
Despite his efforts, a recent concussion kept him from participating in a crucial playoff game against the Buffalo Bills, leading to the Dolphins’ unfortunate loss in the wild-card round.
As Tua looks ahead to the upcoming season, the stakes are high, and his performance could significantly impact his future with the Dolphins. Unless both parties can agree on a contract extension, he is slated to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason.
With the potential to become the face of the Dolphins franchise, a successful and healthy season could position Tua to secure a lucrative and long-term deal.
There’s no doubt this is a very important season for Tua. He is at a crossroads in his career.
First of all, what do you think of the ink?
More importantly, is Tua the Dolphins long-term answer at quarterback?
