NFL Rumors: Miami Dolphins may move Mike Wallace to be more effective?

The Miami Dolphins were relatively predictable on offense during the 2013 season, especially wide reliever Mike Wallace who lined up on the right side of the field at a near 90 percent clip.

That helped opposing defenses take away what the Dolphins were attempting to do, but that could change this season under new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor who could very well put Wallace in motion far more often and even have him line up in the slot.

And, with new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor coming from his job as the Eagles quarterback coach a year ago, he is perfectly suited to apply those principles to the equally explosive Wallace that Eagles coach Chip Kelly applied to Jackson.

More specifically, I’m talking about how the Eagles moved Jackson around — sometimes putting him in the slot — so that he could use his speed against a linebacker or a No. 2 or No. 3 cornerback and then deep against the safety.

All in all, it sounds like a rather effective strategy for the Dolphins and Wallace, who’ll be able to use his advantages against linebackers and safeties as opposed to more talented cornerbacks paired against him.
