New Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace says Miami’s quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, will be just as good as his old quarterback, Ben Reothlisberger.
“Both have strong arms. Ryan has a cannon, can really fling it,” Wallace told the Miami Herald. “Ryan may be able to throw the ball a little farther than Ben. Obviously, Ben is more experienced in game time experience. The way it’s going, it won’t take long for Ryan to be one of the great quarterbacks. I feel like we can make a lot of big plays.”
Wallace said he and Tannehill have put in so much extra time together that they’ll have all the chemistry they need long before the regular season starts.
“By the time we get to training camp, we’ll be fine. We throw two to three times after practice every day,” Wallace said. “I like this team. I like how everybody works. Not much talking, just grinding. That’s the way it should be. I’m one of the older guys on this team, so it’s different than being in Pittsburgh.”
But what’s similar to Pittsburgh, Wallace thinks, is that he’ll still catch passes from a great quarterback.
