The Deep Ball

One player that faced a sub-par season, expectation wise, is wide receiver Mike Wallace.  Wallace, who in his first year with the Dolphins, gathered 73 receptions for 930 yards, and 5 receiving touchdowns, is looking to make a splash in his second season with the Dolphins.  One aspect of Wallace’s game many fans would like to see improvement on is the long ball between himself and Tannehill.

Throughout the season last year, we saw few glimpses of connections between Tannehill and Wallace on the streak route.  By the end of the year, we began to see Tannehill and Wallace creating continuity, particularly against the Patriots and the Panthers.

Tannehill, who admitted he felt rather uncomfortable with his deep ball, expects improvement with his receiving corps throughout the offseason.

The Dolphins, who lost 4 games last season by single digits, look to improve on the long ball this season to make a difference in the final stretch.
