Don’t get him wrong, Mike Wallace sees the benefits of the voluntary offseason program, which began Monday. It’s a great way to build camaraderie.

But in truth, Wallace and Ryan Tannehill won’t really make their much-needed strides until much later in the summer, he believes.

“Right now, always good to get chemistry going with your quarterback,” Wallace told The Finsiders radio program Tuesday. “But I don’t think it’s going to really make a difference. It’s going to make a difference when we get guys in front of us and start lining up.”

Wallace means what he says. He was fine missing the first day of the spring sessions Monday to be with his family, instead choosing to show up for Day 2.

What he found in his return to Miami: A whole new offense, one that he believes is better suited to his strengths.

“My style: Big-play offense,” Wallace said, referring to first-year coordinator Bill Lazor’s new system. “I see Ryan’s excited about it. He’s called me about eight, nine times.
