New Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has yet to sign his rookie contract, but he will use some of his new cash to buy his mother a Cadillac for Mother’s Day.
Tagovailoa gifted his mom, Diane, a black Cadillac Escalade on Sunday and posted a video of the gift on his social media platforms.
“Was able to surprise a special lady with a special gift,” Tagovailoa wrote for the caption. “Happy Mother’s Day mom. I love you.”
Tagovailoa put a large red bow on the hood of the Escalade and parked it in the front yard before his family emerged from the front door of their home.
The No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft shared a hug with his mom before the family took their first ride in the SUV. Tua also posed for a picture with Diane and his father, Galu.
Tagovailoa, 22, is expected to sign a rookie contract worth at least $30 million. The four-year deal should include a signing bonus of nearly $20 million and have a fifth-year option.
No. 7 overall pick Derrick Brown on Friday became the first player of the draft class to sign. Brown’s four-year deal with the Carolina Panthers is worth $23.6 million guaranteed.
