The pressure is on the Miami Dolphins to improve after making several splashy moves this offseason. With a new cast of stars around him, many believe quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is in a make-or-break year, especially with experienced starter Teddy Bridgewater behind him on the depth chart.

New Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel has provided additional clarity on the QB situation as offseason workouts approach.

Dolphins QB 2022

McDaniel said at the annual league meetings currently going on in Florida that both QBs have "explicitly explained" roles heading into the season. This seemingly squashes any controversy surrounding who'll be under center in 2022 as Bridgewater handles backup duties and Tagovailoa begins as the starter.

It's clear McDaniel wants to put Tagovailoa in the best environment possible to succeed. The third-year pro didn't get overwhelming support from the previous regime, but McDaniel's reassurance about his status as QB1 should help boost his confidence heading into the year.

Miami could vault itself into the contender tier if Tagovailoa hits the next level with his upgraded supporting cast. For now, the Dolphins own +3500 odds to win Super Bowl LVII, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
