A day after agreeing to the terms of a four-year $ 30.2 million contract for the NFL, Tua Tagovialoa said he plans to initiate charity efforts in Hawaii and elsewhere.
The former Saint Louis School and University of Alabama quarterback were the fifth overall pick of the April 23 NFL Draft and the first pick of the Miami Dolphins. As part of his contract, Tagovailoa will receive a signing bonus of $ 19.6 million, the richest ever earned by a professional athlete from Hawaii.
Tagovailoa posted on Twitter today, “Thanks to @ MiamiDolphins for making this dream come true for me and my family. It is in my heart to give back to the communities that raised me. Plans are underway to launch charity efforts in Hawaii, Alabama and Miami. Stay tuned, stay safe. Go fins! Blessed!”
On Sunday, Tagovailoa presented his mom, Diane, a new Cadillac Escalade SUV for Mother’s Day.
