MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — We didn’t hear from Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on Tuesday, the second day the Dolphins were on the field for organized team activities and the first day media was allowed to view the entire 90-minute session.

Tagovailoa missed Tuesday’s OTA because he was attending a charity golf tournament that Alabama coach Nick Saban, his former college coach, is sponsoring.

Tagovailoa’s absence on Tuesday wasn’t a big deal.

About 15 other Dolphins starters missed Tuesday’s session for different reasons.

But Tagovailoa’s absence from other offseason workouts has been significant in the bigger picture.

From afar, it seems change winds are blowing through Tagovailoa’s world for whatever reason(s).


I think Tua’s contract negotiations are a factor for his absences and actions.

Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel wouldn’t go there.

“I don’t make a habit of speaking for other people’s minds,” he said. “I’ll let you ask Tua. You guys have a good relationship.”

Still, let’s stack up the recent happenings between Tua and the Dolphins.
