While his debut season had its ups and downs, Tua Tagovailoa is now the man in Miami.

But it’s not just the continued votes of confidence this offseason of the Dolphins starting quarterback in Miami that has Tagovailoa feeling good, it’s the quarterback’s health that has continued to develop since his arrival in the NFL.

Leading up to the start of his second professional season, Tagovailoa recently shared his hip is feeling significantly better than it did at this time last year.

“My hip feels 10 times better than it did last year, and the confidence level for myself, I feel really confident coming into this second year after the injury two years ago,” Tua recently said according to Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Tua played 10 games last season for the Dolphins, completing 64.1 percent of his passes for 1,814 yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. Provided his hip really is as healthy as he says, look for his statistics to take a big jump in Year 2 in Miami.
