The Miami Dolphins won't begin the team's official OTA workouts until the end of April, but numerous players are already at the team's Davie facility twice a week running routes, getting a jump start on the new offense Bill Lazor will be installing.

The guy coordinating these workouts is none other than quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is entering his third season as the team's starter.

"When the quarterback says anything you listen," said Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews, who said the workouts are entering their third week and have been picking up from a pace standpoint.

Tannehill's teaching players like Matthews Lazor's new offense, schemes and terminology because coaches aren't allow to work with players during the NFL's dead period, which is ongoing.

Funny question but I wonder which guys are there considering Hartline, Gibson and Binns are on the mend.

Obviously Matthews, but curious if Wallace, Clay, Egnew and Sims are there as well.

I think since the Dolphins are installing a new offense, all of them would be there.

You'd hope so. Spoke too soon without thinking. I guess my question should have been who is running routes since 3/5 of the WRs are nursing knee injuries. Given Mike Wallace isn't shy I thought maybe he'd tweet out something about working with Tannehill.

Just glad to see Tannehill has the guys out there.

I know he did this last off season as well and it did not pay off like we would have hoped but I am confident that it will pay off big time for this season.

And come to find out Mike Wallace has not been at these workouts. I realize its only April and not time to overreact, but wouldn't you think with a new offense and the criticisms you'd be putting in the extra work?

Bad optics.

Let's keep blaming Tannehill for Mike Wallace's failures.

Its why I asked the question of who is there running routes since most of the guys are hurt. I can see film room and playbook study by everyone, but if Matthews is the only WR running routes...

As someone else pointed out, Tannehill and Hartline warmed up every game together. You saw the results. Wallace said he had his own routine. Also, you can't spend every practice working on deep route timing. Now is a great time to get some rhythm going.

Maybe La Canfora is on to something...okay, maybe overreation but it felt good to say it.

There are no DB's banging the recievers at the line, disrupting timing. No defense closing in on the QB, forcing a throw early or lat, or on the run...

Its a glorified game of catch. Im not to worried about who is there and who is not... Wallace stands to loose a lot more than Matthews if he gets injured out there.

How so?

And yeah, I get your point about not overreacting but the purpose of this isn't to just play catch. Its learning plays, positioning and seeing each other's tendencies.

I agree that this isn't going to make or break the season, but little things can help an offense looking for an identity.

If it is just a glorified game of catch, then why do so many successful quarterbacks get together with their receivers in the offseason, especially when they are joining a new team (see Peyton Manning when he first joined the Broncos) to develop chemistry with their wideouts.

Why did Mike Wallace say he and Tannehill should have done this last season and blamed himself for it not happening?

It's not just a game of catch. Tannehill is getting a head start on showing his receivers the new playbook.

... and MIke Wallace is not. I question his work ethic - everyone blame's Tanne , but this kid if of a dying breed known as the diva receiver.

If Manning was the QB I am pretty sure Wallace would be there...

Hopefully this work shows up on Sundays this year and the Dolphins finally finish a season over .500. 10-6 and a trip to the playoffs would be a huge step in the right direction.

Good to hear this going on. Any time gaining chemistry is better than no time. When I played QB I loved playing catch with the receivers..I could learn where I could palce the ball with each guy..learn their jumping abilities and how far they can go out for a ball, their balance tendencies, also learn little hand signals to look for if the WR spots a gap in the coverage....we always prepared and it payed off.
