The Miami Dolphins took Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa with the fifth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. He is now the presumed quarterback of the future with high expectations.
Tagovailoa's deal became official Tuesday as NFL teams continue to work remotely, and the young star took the occasion as an opportunity to announce that he is already using the cash to launch charities in several locations where he has lived.
The former Crimson Tide star grew up in Hawaii before he and his family moved to Alabama once he joined the program. He has always come off as a great human being, and the fact he is already launching charities right after signing his contract shows he has not changed during his limited time in the spotlight.
And it's only the beginning.
Tagovailoa signed a deal reportedly worth just over $30 million, and is already giving some of it back to several communities. That is a noble gesture, and it will be exciting to see the type of player he becomes on the field. But for some, he will always be known for all the great work he does off of it.
