Tua Tagovailoa is one of the bigger snubs from the Pro Bowl rosters, which were announced on Wednesday. But his absence from the Pro Bowl honor actually helps the Miami Dolphins in one regard.
Dolphins beat reporter Daniel Oyefusi noted on Wednesday that Tagovailoa stood to get a pay bump if he were selected for the Pro Bowl. Oyefusi said the salary projection would have seen an increase from $22 million to $28 million for 2024 had Tagovailoa made the Pro Bowl. Making it in as an alternate does not count toward this pay bump.
Tagovailoa led the fan vote for the Pro Bowl but still did not make it. Of course, it’s tough to crack the Pro Bowl as a quarterback in the AFC when the competition includes Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, and Joe Burrow, who all made it.
Tagovailoa, who is in his third NFL season, is having a career year. He has passed for 3,238 yards, 24 touchdowns, and five interceptions this season.
