Tua Tagovailoa fires back at ex-NFL player’s criticism on offseason training: Keep ‘my name out of your mouth’

Instead of talking about the Dolphins’ offense and his goals for the 2023 season, Tua Tagovailoa fielded questions Wednesday about some criticism fired in his direction, specifically about his offseason conditioning and overall workout plan. As you can imagine, Tagovailoa didn’t appreciate the remarks, and he let everyone know that. 

Tagovailoa responded to recent criticism from former NFL safety and current ESPN analyst Ryan Clark. On Tuesday, Clark took a not-so-subtle shot at Tagovailoa’s offseason training and whether or not he took the advice of a nutritionist. 

“He probably knows more about me than I know about myself,” Tagovailoa said, via NFL Media. “I don’t know. Ryan’s been out of the league for some time. I don’t know. It’s a little weird when other people are talking about other people and they’re not that person. So, I don’t know. It’s just a little weird. 

“My background, I come from a Samoan family. Respect is everything. But, you know, it does get to a point where, hey, a little bit easy on that, buddy. I think we’re pretty tough-minded people, and if we need to get scrappy, we can get scrappy, too. Just saying.”
