Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was underwhelmed by his production in his first season in Miami.
Wallace had 73 catches for 930 yards and five touchdowns, numbers that were solid if short of the expectations that came with his five-year, $60 million contract. Wallace wasn’t shy about expressing his dissatisfaction with the offense last season, but Mike Sherman was fired as offensive coordinator and Wallace is finding life with Bill Lazor much more to his liking.
Wallace particularly likes the way Lazor is moving him around the offense rather than just leaving him on the right side of the offense as the Dolphins did quite often last season.
“[Defenses] can’t key on me. Last year they knew where I was every single play. I was there every game, in the same spot,” Wallace said, via the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “When you move around it is harder for the defense to know where you’re at. Harder for them to adjust.”
Wallace said things are “getting better every day” on offense, including his chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. If they can fix their issues on the offensive line, the Dolphins should be well positioned for the kind of improvement that Wallace, Tannehill and coach Joe Philbin all need to see to make for happier times in Miami this year.
