The Splash Zone 8/17/21: Tua Tagovailoa’s Preseason Debut

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Chicago Bears Eileen T. Meslar-USA TODAY Sports

I think something that got overlooked was the fact that not only did rookies make their preseason debuts, second year players also made theirs. Last year with all the COVID-19 stuff going on, there was no preseason. So Tua Tagovailoa made his preseason debut against the Bears and he just seemed like a different player. Perhaps it was the new offensive system in place or perhaps he is 100% healthy now and has a lot more confidence. Despite his interception, the Dolphins should be encouraged by what Tua displayed on the football field.

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