Tua Tagovailoa, the Miami Dolphins quarterback, was recently chosen as the team's captain by his teammates and head coach Mike McDaniel.

Additionally, the most votes for the honour went to Tagavailoa.

Surprisingly, despite being the team's starting quarterback last season, this is Tagovailoa's first time receiving the honour.

This could be attributed to the fact that under former head coach Brian Flores, Tagovailoa did not provide a strong enough statement to be appointed team captain.

Players reportedly petitioned Flores for the team captaincy last year.

Last year's team captains were defensive back Jason McCourty, wide receiver Mack Hollins, linebacker Elandon Roberts, offensive lineman Jesse Davis, and cornerbacks Jason McCourty and Clayton Fejedelem.

There was reportedly a growing rift between Tagovailoa and Flores prior to Flores' dismissal.

Tagovailoa guided the Dolphins to a 9-8 record last year while passing for 2,653 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 10 picks.

Tagovailoa is poised for a breakout season with a head coach who believes in him and new weapons surrounding him.
