Mike Wallace likes the variety in new offense
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Dolphins wideout Mike Wallace was planted on the right side last season. This year, in Bill Lazor's offense, he's moving all over the formation

“I love it,” Wallace told the Sun-Sentinel. "He just brings a different type of excitement to the table. I love [former OC Mike] Sherman, but coach Lazor’s a real different type of guy. So I’m really excited about it."

Mike Wallace: I might return kickoffs
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace, who struggled to connect with Ryan Tannehill last year, told Sky Sports he's willing to try anything to make his presence felt.

"I might get back there for kickoff returns," Wallace said. "I just want to be on the field making an impact for my team. I've always wanted to return kicks ever since I've been in the NFL."

Wallace returned kicks in the preseason when he was a Steeler, but there'e been no indication Miami will use him that way in the preseason or regular season, according to NFL.com. "At this point of my career, I just want to get the ball in my hands and make some plays," Wallace said.

Has the Ryan Tannehill-Mike Wallace connection been fixed?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

There were issues between Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and receiver Mike Wallace connecting on long passes last season. In 2013 Wallace had just five catches good for 40-plus yards, four of them legitimate deep lobs (and all of those four slightly underthrown). A big issue for Miami this offseason is to fix the deep ball for Tannehill and have him connect more often with the blazing-fast Wallace. 

According to ESPN, there's no visual evidence of an improvement. Over seven practices open to the media including the team's recent three-day minicamp, Tannehill has failed to connect with Wallace. He's tried but misfired. 

The team, including the receiver involved, insists that it's a non-issue. 

"(You) haven't been here. ... We hit those, about three or four of them so far," Wallace said. "Me and him haven't personally thrown that many. If we've thrown like six, we've hit on like four."

ESPN also notes that Wallace "appears determined" to have a big year. He's put in extra time after practice to work on his hands and received praise from his head coach, Joe Philbin, who said he's "doing the little things that can make the difference when the season comes around."

Mike Wallace will line up in different spots
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace likes the fact that Bill Lazor's offense moves him around the formation, reports the Miami Herald. Last season, Wallace told the paper, defenses "knew exactly where he was going to be."

That flexibility is one reason why Wallace is clearly in "better spirits" this year, the paper said.

Mike Wallace admits he was confused last year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace admitted he wasn't on the same page with quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the rest of the offense last year. Wallace is more optimistic about new coordinator Bill Lazor's scheme.

"I didn’t feel like I knew what was going on” last season, Wallace told the Palm Beach Post. "It’s still new, just because it’s a new offense, but at the same time I feel a lot more comfortable."

Wallace and Tannehill have worked out together throughout the offseason, hoping to build better chemistry and timing.
