MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Tua Tagovailoa is in South Florida for Super Bowl weekend.

Local 10 News spoke with Tagovailoa’s agent, Leigh Steinberg.

“He’s got unique talents and a personality that’s charismatic,” Steinberg said.

Steinberg recognized how important it is for teams to hit on the right quarterback.

“It is really difficult for teams to fill the position of franchise quarterback,” he said. “Someone that you can win with rather than because. Someone you can build around for 10-12 years.”

Steinberg said that Tagovailoa has the mind to be able to handle adversity.
