Jaylen Waddle on Tua the pro vs Tua the college player, “I think he’s much more vocal. He always took it personal, but he’s just got a little bit more bass in his voice I would say.” #Dolphins

Tagovailoa and Waddle were teammates together at Alabama for 2 seasons in 2018 and 2019. Tagovailoa declared for the 2020 NFL Draft, where he was picked by Miami with the No. 5 overall pick. In the following Draft, Waddle was the No. 6 overall pick.
Miami is looking to get into the NFL playoffs for the first time since 2016. Before then, the last time Miami went to the playoffs was in the 2008 NFL season. Last season, despite some up-and-down performances with Tagovailoa and the entire offense, the Dolphins had their first winning season at 10-6 since the 2016 season.
