Miami traded five draft selections, including first- and second-round picks for the 2022 draft to theHill was traded in March in exchange for $72 million. Hill was then immediately signed to the most lucrative NFL wide receiver contract ever — a four year, $120 million extension.

Hill responded by the next day posting a video of several deep passes From Tagovailoa to Dolphins receivers.
Hill stated, “Football is all about confidence. I feel very confident in my quarterback.” Hill said, “So I feel like if he can get all the confidence in his world and push other guys that confidence into him then the sky's not the limit because he has incredible arm strength, arm talent, and is a hell of a talent.

Mike McDaniel, Dolphins coach, has given Tagovailoa high praise for his performance and work ethic during this offseason. Tagovailoa was named the practice player of day last week.
McDaniel stated Tuesday that Tagovailoa was a remarkable person.
McDaniel said, “I have seen a guy who's attacking the moment and a guy who really enjoys playing football.” “You hear people describe a quarterback's instinctiveness … I was unsure what that meant. Although I now know what it meant, I don't know how to explain it better than instinctiveness.
“But, you can tell that the player has been playing the position for a while and that he views the game of football through a lens of the quarterback position. His development in the offensive plan and as the starting quarterback for Miami Dolphins has been a great joy.
