The Dolphins have done plenty to change their offense this offseason and their maneuvering has at least one big fan.
Wide receiver Brian Hartline, whose new contract was also part of a busy couple of months in Miami, thinks the additions of wide receiver Mike Wallace and tight end Dustin Keller will do good things for the passing game. How good? Hartline said Tuesday that the Dolphins now have a “championship offense.”
“I think we got every move we needed to make,” Hartline said, via Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “We probably could add some depth at certain positions, but we’ve got all the pieces to the car, now we’ve just got to put it altogether.”
There’s no question that the Dolphins offense looks much improved on paper with the additions of Wallace, Keller and wide receiver Brandon Gibson. There’s a lot more for quarterback Ryan Tannehill to work with than there was in his rookie season and the results should be better.
That said, it’s a bit hyperbolic to bring championships into the discussion in April. The Dolphins still have a hole to fill at tackle and, as Hartline said, there’s plenty of work to do to make sure everything comes together once the games get started. If the same level of excitement about the offense remains in place six months from now, the we’ll know they’ve take all the necessary steps to give Hartline a chance of being proven right.
