Tua Tagovailoa Signs Rookie Deal with Dolphins

by May 11, 2020 0 comments

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa signed his rookie contract with the Miami Dolphins on Monday.

The deal is for four years and $30.28 million with a fifth-year option and a $19.6 million signing bonus. The deal is fully guaranteed.

Tagovailoa was the fifth overall pick in this year’s draft, and he becomes the fifth Dolphins draft pick to sign. At the time of his agreement, he becomes the highest-selected player to sign their rookie contract. The only other first-round draft pick to sign is Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Derrick Brown, who was drafted seventh.

Tagovailoa is very popular. He has the NFL’s two highest-selling jerseys since the draft, topping Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, according to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN. His men’s jersey is the No. 1 seller over the last two weeks while his white jersey is at No. 2.

Now, Tagovailoa just needs to lead the Dolphins to a Super Bowl title.
