Tua Tagovailoa Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Over the past several seasons, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has emerged as one of the more prolific passers in the entire league, but veteran wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. still had some reservations about playing with him for one reason: he’s left-handed.

During a recent press conference with the team, Odell Beckham Jr. revealed that he was “a little hesitant” to play with Tua Tagovailoa given that he’s left-handed and he has typically shied away from left-handed quarterbacks. But he ultimately decided to that it was a good opportunity for him.

“I definitely was a little hesitant at first, because he’s a lefty, and I think I shied away from lefties,” Beckham said according to Pro Football Talk. “But now that I think about it, I’ve been throwing with Jarvis Landry since I was 15 years old. One of my trainers is left-handed.

“They said he just throws different. They said the accuracy and the spin, they’re like it’s not really like he’s left-handed. Just watching his film, there’s a lot of great things that he’s been doing. He did it at Alabama, did it here with the Dolphins. Like I said, I’ve just seen an opportunity when I really watched the film, when I really sat down and didn’t look at a destination. I looked at myself in the mirror and a place for me and my career. I’ve just seen a lot of opportunity here.”

We’ll have to see what kind of numbers Beckham puts up with the Dolphins.
