No one knows exactly where Alabama star QB Tua Tagovailoa will go in the NFL Draft, but there's one team his family really wants to avoid - the Detroit Lions. Per Miami Herald...
quote:I know one person who ain't having that...
Sources close to Tagovailoas say the Alabama quarterback would love for the Dolphins to trade up to No. 3 to select him. Those same sources say they don’t love the idea of Detroit actually picking Tua because of the arc of that team’s current coaching situation.
The Lions will be playing their third season under Matt Patricia in 2020. He has a 9-22-1 record his first two seasons and the Tagovailoas are concerned another poor season could force the Lions to fire Patricia — putting the quarterback in the uncertain 2021 situation of being a draft pick the new coach didn’t make.
And this: The Tagovailoas would love to come to the Dolphins.
They love the weather. They love the region. They love the idea of trying to be answer for a team long searching for an elite quarterback.
