Tua Tagovailoa gets called out on Twitter after Dolphins post video of him underthrowing Tyreek Hill
Tua Tagovailoa has a new WR1 to throw to heading into the 2022 season with the Miami Dolphins.
Former Kansas City Chiefs star WR Tyreek Hill, perhaps the fastest player in the NFL, joins a Dolphins receiving corps that already contains speedy former Alabama WR Jaylen Waddle.
But, on Wednesday, Tagovailoa took some heat on Twitter after a video was posted by the Dolphins’ team Twitter account showing him underthrowing the speedy Hill:

As you can imagine, social media had plenty of jokes about Tagovailoa’s underthrow, questioning why the Dolphins would post that video:

Obviously, this is a workout before the NFL preseason even starts, so there’s plenty of time for the Tagovailoa-Hill connection to blossom. The Dolphins will need it to improve in order to compete for a playoff spot in 2022.
