The long-awaited wait for Tua Tagovailoa to pick his jersey number has come to an end. Tua was selected No. 5 overall by the Miami Dolphins and is the future of the Dolphins organization.
Tua Tagovailoa picked number one as his jersey number for the 2020 NFL season. Some other players who wore number one for the Dolphins were Garo Yepremian. Yepremian played for the Dolphins from 1970 – 1978 and he played kicker. Tony Franklin played for the Dolphins in 1988 and he played kicker for his career. Matt Turk played for the Dolphins from 2000 – 2001 and 2003 – 2004 as the team’s punter.
Clearly, throughout history, No. 1 has not been a popular number among star players on the Dolphins. Tua is the first quarterback to wear No. 1 for the Dolphins in the history of the organization. One recent star quarterback who has worn No. 1 is Cam Newton, which he won MVP in 2015. Overall, Tua is wearing a number that few NFL star quarterbacks have worn, but none for the Dolphins.
