Is Tua Tagovailoa going to help the Dolphins in their quest for glory?

Like many high draft picks, with Tagovailoa comes the renewed hopes and dreams of an entire fanbase. Miami has rarely had a true reason to be excited for quarterback since the days of Dan Marino. So, the Dolphins faithful are pinning all their hopes and dreams on Tagovailoa, who will try and herald a new dawn.

The jersey of No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow isn’t selling as quickly. Especially with Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb outselling Burrow as of Tuesday morning. With the sheer size of the Cowboys’ passionate fanbase considered, the popularity of Lamb’s No. 88 isn’t all that stunning, but it is interesting.

Ranking all the teams by jersey sales, the Cleveland Browns are boosted by sales of Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham jerseys. However, this time in the popularity charts, Tagovailoa reigns supreme.
