As soon as the Miami Dolphins traded for superstar wide receiver Tyreek Hill, the pressure on third-year QB Tua Tagovailoa turned up a notch.

That being said, the Cheetah seems to think Tua can rise to the occasion.

During his introductory press conference on Thursday, the six-time Pro Bowler shared his thoughts on his new starting quarterback.

“Tua is probably one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the NFL," Hill said. "Just his ball placement, getting us the ball in space, perfect placement and us utilizing our speed."

Tua has always been known for his deadly accurate-passing ability. Through his second NFL season in 2021, the Miami signal caller completed 67.8 percent of his passes for a No. 4 ranking in the league -- sitting just behind Joe Burrow, Aaron Rodgers and Kyler Murray. Hill's former Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes ranked No. 7 on that list with a 67.3 completion percentage.

In joining the Dolphins, Hill gains a dynamic WR partner in Jaylen Waddle. Now with two of the fastest players in the league, the field should open up a great deal for Tua in his third NFL season.
