Tua Tagovailoa Says Ideal Scenario Would Be To Play For Cowboys


Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa tells Steve Wyche of NFL Media that in an ideal scenario, he would choose to play for the Cowboys. 

“We’ve looked at teams,” Tagovailoa said. “We’ve talked about teams. We’ve talked to teams. Somebody might trade up and you could possibly drop or you could possibly go higher. We’ve been talking about all those scenarios.

“If you’re saying to me, if I can choose what team I want to play on, as far as my favorite team growing up, then I probably tell you the Cowboys.”

The Cowboys obviously have a quarterback they will need to get under contract long-term this offseason in Dak Prescott. However, Tagovailoa explained that he would be fine sitting and learning behind Prescott. 

“I’m not trying to bump him. I’ll learn under him,” Tagovailoa said of Prescott. “I’d handle it the way that the coaches there want to handle it. Honestly, I just want to be able play again. I wouldn’t mind learning under whatever guy that’s the starter. Give me a whole year to rest up and then go back out and compete, but I just want to go back out and play.

The three-month CT scan on Tagovailoa’s hip reportedly showed that the fracture has healed and his range of motion is good. Tagovailoa could be cleared for football activities in another. 

Tagovailoa, 21, is still expected to be a high first-round pick in this year’s draft, despite the serious hip injury. In fact, many experts believe he’ll still be a top-five pick as long as things check out with his hip. 

For his career, Tagovailoa has completed 69.3 percent of his passes for 7,442 yards, 87 touchdowns and 11 interceptions over the course of three seasons and 32 games. He has also rushed for 340 yards and nine touchdowns.
