Former Dolphins cornerback Pat Surtain joined the show this morning and the Tua Tagovailoa conversation continued. 

Surtain has a son who is currently a star at Alabama, so he knows Tua and his family well. The former Dolphins star raved about the young QB.

“I’m all in on Tua," said Surtain. "He’s got to prove me right because I've been saying it since Day 1. I think the Dolphins have themselves a franchise quarterback for the next 10 years or so.” 

As far as when we should see Tua, Surtain shared his opinion.

“We’ve had quarterbacks that haven’t translated from college to the NFL, but he has all the intangibles necessary if they can protect him and he can stay healthy," said Surtain. "I say throw him out there.” 

The Dolphins rookies have already reported to camp in Davie, so we will begin to see Tua in action soon enough.  He is slated to have an open competition with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen.
