Receiver Tyreek Hill comes to the Dolphins carrying a reputation for his speed and skill.

We all saw it on display plenty in his six seasons with the Chiefs.

But it’s a little bit different to have him as a teammate, even in the early stages of the offseason program.

“It’s fun,” quarterback Tua Tagovailoa said in his Wednesday press conference. “You catch glimpses of his speed — and you obviously have played against him, seen him play in other games, his highlights as well. He’s explosive. He can turn a negative-2-yard swing route into a 20-yard touchdown, or 20-yard gain. So it’s pretty cool. It’s exciting.”

Hill and fellow receiver Jaylen Waddle should have plenty of opportunities to make explosive plays within head coach Mike McDaniel’s offense in the coming season. And if Hill and Waddle excel, it should bode well for Tagovailoa solidifying himself as Miami’s franchise quarterback for years to come.

  1. He’s going to have to release the ball early on the post routes to make sure he doesn’t underthrow Hill. That will help compensate for his weak arm.

  2. But we still don’t have an offensive line, can Tyreek play offensive guard as well?

  3. If there’s one QB that knows what it feels like to have an entire group of WR’s that are heads and shoulders above the DB’s they’re playing against, it’s Tua. Now if he can get an offensive line that gives him 7 seconds to throw, like he had at Alabama, he should feel right at home.

  4. This will be an epic disaster. Hill Will average under 10 ypc with this guy throwing.
