The Miami Dolphins have until May 2 to exercise the fifth year option of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. When Tua played this year, he was pretty good. But he just couldn’t stay healthy. General manager Chris Grier doesn’t think that will scare the team away from exercising Tua’s fifth year or perhaps offering the quarterback an extension. Hopefully Tua can see the field a bit more next season because this offense was fun to watch when he was piloting it.

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