1 Min Read

Cleveland Browns rookie offensive lineman Jedrick Wills Jr. endorsed Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa for the NFL’s Rookie of the Week award.

Wills Jr. and Tagovailoa were teammates in college at the University of Alabama. Clearly, Wills Jr. is glad to see his former quarterback thriving in the NFL.

Tagovailoa led the Dolphins to a 29-21 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10. He threw for 169 yards and two touchdowns in the win.

The No. 5 pick in the NFL draft has led the Dolphins to three consecutive wins since taking the starting quarterback job from Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Tagovailoa has been as advertised, playing efficient football and flashing moments of greatness early in his career.

So far this season, Tagovailoa has completed 63.6 percent of his passes for 519 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions.
