Report: Dolphins attempted to bring Tua Tagovailoa to Miami before lockout


The Miami Dolphins attempted to bring the talented quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to Miami the night before the NFL banned all face-to-face visits due to the coronavirus pandemic on March 13, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Schefter adds that the Alabama product was the first college player the Dolphins attempted to bring to Miami before COVID-19 stopped in mid-March.

Tagovailoa suffered a dislocation of the hip, a fractured rear wall and a broken nose and concussion during a game against the state of Mississippi on November 16. Two days later, he was operated on in Houston.

Miami was able to examine Tagovailoa at the NFL Scouting Combine in late February, but has had no contact with or prospects since.

The 22-year-old Hawaiian has competed in the last three seasons with the Crimson Tide, winning the 2018 SFBC National Championship and was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy in the same year.

The 2020 NFL Draft takes place from April 23 to April 25. The Cincinnati Bengals have the first overall choice while the Dolphins have the fifth.
