Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill has full confidence in Tua Tagovailoa but believes the quarterback is entering a critical season.

Hill was direct when addressing the heightened expectations surrounding the signal-caller ahead of his third year.

“You know, in the NFL, they only give you two-to-three years to be a successful quarterback, especially if you’re a first-round draft pick,” Hill said on his “It Needed To Be Said” podcast. “If you don’t succeed after those years, it’s, ‘Kick rocks, man.'”

Hill added, “It’s basically his last year to show people what he’s got.”

Tagovailoa led the Dolphins to a 13-8 record through two seasons. He passed for 2,653 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in 2021.

The 24-year-old has been scrutinized for his arm strength. He’s averaging 6.6 yards per attempt and 194.2 yards gained per game.

However, Tagovailoa’s pass-catchers continue to come to his defense. Hill is confident that detractors will have to apologize when they see what the young passer can do.

“There’s gonna be a lot of people taking their words back,” Hill said.

“I’m going to be happier when everybody else gets to see what I already know,” added Dolphins wideout Jaylen Waddle.

Hill also pointed out the similarities between the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2019 roster and the Dolphins’ current group. He noted both teams share common traits of being “explosive” and “dynamic” on offense.

The Dolphins are set to usher in a new era under head coach Mike McDaniel. The AFC East club made several significant roster additions, including trading for Hill and signing veterans Terron ArmsteadConnor Williams, and Raheem Mostert.
