The Miami Dolphins made one of the NFL offseason's biggest and most surprising moves. They traded for Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill, making him the highest-paid wideout in the league.

However, some are still skeptical about Tua Tagovailoa's ability to make the most of a top-tier weapon like him and think his numbers will take a massive dip.

Hill Lauds Tua

That's not what Hill thinks at all. In a recent interview, the All-Pro WR showered Tagovailoa in praise, claiming that people don't realize how good he is:

“I’ve had a chance to see Tua [Tagovailoa] throw the ball, to myself, but. he’s that dude, bro,” Hill said. “Like, what a lot of people don’t know, like, I’m not just sitting just saying this because he’s my quarterback now. Like, I’m not trying to get more targets right now, but what I’m trying to say is Tua is that deal, bro, he has a heck of an arm. He’s accurate. He can throw the deep ball, and he actually goes through his reads, where people are like on Twitter like saying, ‘Oh, he doesn’t go through his reads.’ Man, this dude is that dude.”

Tua Is More Accurate Than Mahomes, Says Hill

Hill has high regard for Tua. Maybe way too high. He claimed that he's even more accurate than Patrick Mahomes, who has the stronger arm between the two:

“Obviously, like I’m gonna go with 15 as the strongest arm but as far as accuracy-wise, I’m going with Tua all day,” Hill said.

Hill Has Expanded His Game

Hill claims he doesn't need explosive plays on every snap. He's proud of the way he's adapted his game and wants to prove that he's more than just a deep-ball threat at this point in his career:

“I love the deep ball, but guess though? I done expanded my game,” the WR said. “So now I’m doing a lot more than just the deep ball now. I’m doing intermediate routes. I’m doing short routes. So now I actually need a guy who can just get me the ball now, on a dagger route, on a corner route, on a shallow cross route. You know, right now, right in my chest. So I can do the rest. I make you look good now."

Will The Dolphins Disappoint?

The Dolphins were one of the most active teams in the offseason. From their HC to revamping their offense, they made a strong commitment to Tua.

So, there's no more room for error or excuses anymore. It's now or never for Tua, who'll need to prove he's the guy we saw in Alabama and not what he showed during his first two seasons.
