Dolphins WR Mike Wallace prides himself on his work ethic.
That’s why, he says, he would stay on the field after spring practices catching passes from the Jugs machine long after his Dolphins teammates had walked off the field to conduct interviews or head inside the Doctors Hospital Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University to get out of the sun.
In fact, almost without fail, Wallace always was the last Dolphins player to finish his work after a practice. Wallace says it’s all about “getting the edge.”
Wallace finished the season as the #25 WR, but was an unreliable option for most of the year. Thanks to four touchdowns in his final six games, he averaged 10.8 FP in that span, which equates to low-end WR1-type numbers. We're not expecting that kind of production, though he should be a top-end WR3 if his late season surge continues into this season. The arrival of OC Bill Lazor should help; Wallace really seems to like the new offense.
