When the Miami Dolphins brought in wide receiver Mike Wallace, they felt they finally landed that much needed deep threat they had been lacking.
Wallace looked to be breaking out with the Pittsburgh Steelers and after hauling in 26 touchdowns over the past three seasons, there was little reason to believe Wallace couldn’t replicate similar production in South Beach, right?
Apparently not. Through the first eleven weeks of the season, Wallace has been a shell of his former self, looking completely lost, dropping balls and fulling his diva wide receiver role by complaining about the coaches, offense and his quarterback.
Granted, it’s not all Wallace’s fault as quarterback Ryan Tannehill lacks the needed arm strength of an NFL quarterback but the Dolphins and offensive coordinator Mike Sherman are determined to get the two players on the same page:
Mike Sherman said “we have to get” Wallace and Tannehill “on the same page” on deep balls and that will be a priority.
Wallace has one touchdown on 44 receptions, averaging a career low in yards per catch and game.
