When it comes to the Miami Dolphins franchise, there's honestly nobody better to sing your praises than legendary quarterback Dan Marino. Well, second-year quarterback Tua Tagovailoa can now cross that off his checklist as Marino recently offered huge praise for the 23-year-old signal-caller.

Marino, who continues to work closely with the franchise as a special advisor, recently had this to say of Tagovailoa.

“[Tagovailoa’s] been great. He’s been awesome. He has all the talent in the world. Now it’s just about him developing the relationship with the other players..."

Tagovailoa started nine of the Dolphins' 16 games last season, throwing 11 touchdowns and 1,814 yards while completing better than 64 percent of his passes. His dual-threat capabilities were a point of focus as well, with Tagovailoa adding 3 TDs on the ground.

When Marino, the franchise leader in games (242), completions (4,967), yards (61,361) and touchdowns (420) calls you "awesome" and says you have "all the talent in the world," it's worth noting.

Only time will tell if Tagovailoa can live up to these expectations. Right now, the Dolphins own the second-best odds (+320) to win the AFC East division, according to NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
