He’s not just comfortable. He’s actually having fun.
And Bill Lazor’s new offense has a lot to do with it. Wallace torched the Dolphins’ defense for three touchdown catches during practice Monday, an early sign that Miami’s recast system is more suited to his skill set.
“It just makes coming to work easier,” Wallace said. “It makes it more fun for you when you know you can move around, do different things that in my whole career, I’ve never really done. A fresh opportunity every day.”
Under deposed coordinator Mike Sherman, there were no surprises. Wallace, most every single play, lined up wide on the right side. He rarely motioned. And Wallace's productivity probably suffered because of it.
“Last year, they kind of knew where I was every single play,” Wallace said. “I was there every game, the same spot. When you move around, it’s harder for a defense to know where you’re at.”
Lazor, meanwhile, wants to put Wallace in matchups that give him the best chance to get open. He even broke loose on a double-reverse Monday.
While Dolphins coach Joe Philbin chose not to re-litigate last year's failings, he did concede that are there are benefits to versatility in alignment.
