Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa "throwing with more zip" than last season

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been "throwing the ball with more zip" during the 2021 offseason than he had been in 2020.

What It Means:

This is good news for Tagovailoa, who spent much of the 2020 offseason working his way back from a devastating hip injury suffered in his final collegiate season. Now another year removed from the injury and with an entire offseason of training and workouts, Tagovailoa seems primed for a breakout second season in the NFL (not to mention his completely revamped receiver corps, now featuring Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle).

Tagovailoa's rookie season was awkward and underwhelming from a statistical standpoint, with the fifth-overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft averaging just 6.2 yards per attempt over his 290 attempts (29th in the league). He's the QB23 in numberFire's early season-long rankings with an improved 6.7 yards per attempt mark
