If you haven’t noticed, there has been a little bit of chatter about Tua Tagovailoa and Deshaun Watson this week. Though the trade scenario is high unlikely, it still has people talking about Tagovailoa’s ability as a starting quarterback.

Look, the rookie appeared in 10 games, with a subpar supporting cast at running back and wide receiver, and an offensive coordinator, whose scheme just wasn’t working with the rookie. Now this offseason is going to be all about surrounding Tua with a better supports cast and finding an offensive coordinator who can bring the most of the southpaw. Brian Flores hasn’t lost confidence in his quarterback and only believes his best football is ahead of him.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
