Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had a rough day at minicamp on Tuesday.
The second-year signal caller threw five interceptions during practice, which reportedly took place in some treacherous conditions.
Omar Kelly, a Dolphins columnist for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, put Tagovailoa on blast after his poor showing.
There is absolutely no excuse for a 5 interception day. I don’t care if it’s a Hurricane. Your starting QB can’t turn the ball over 5 times. And these aren’t aggressive throws either.

Tagovailoa certainly deserves criticism for not playing well, but it is just one day of minicamp.
The Dolphins need Tagovailoa to learn from his mistakes on Tuesday to get better in preparation for the 2021 season.
While Kelly is right to hold Tagovailoa accountable, it will be interesting to see if this practice was just an outlier for the quarterback.
As a rookie, Tagovailoa threw for 1,814 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions across 10 games (nine starts).
