MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – As the Miami Dolphins get ready to head to New England for the season opener, the team named captains for the season on Wednesday.
The list includes: linebacker Elandon Roberts, offensive lineman Jesse Davis, safety Clayton Fejedelem, wide receiver Mack Hollins, and defensive back Jason McCourty.
Notably missing from the list was quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
As local 10′s Clay Ferraro pointed out, in 2020, every NFL team named their starting quarterback as a captain.
It’s been a busy offseason for Tagovailoa as he looks to get into improved physical shape.
The second-year quarterback also heard plenty of whispers about rumors of the Dolphins trading for Deshaun Watson.
For their part, the Dolphins have backed Tagovailoa.
Owner Stephen Ross denied any interest in Watson and head coach Brian Flores told the team that Tua is their guy.
