|Daniel Thomas coming on in Miami? -- Thu Aug 15 5:35 pm --|
GM also pleased with Mike Wallace recently
|Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland praised Lamar Miller but added “I don’t think it’s just going to be Lamar's (Miller) position. We’ve got a good running back in Daniel Thomas that’s certainly making some noise.” He said he believes Miller and Thomas will each have a “breakout season” and “they’re a pretty good one/two punch.”
On Mike Wallace: “I’ve really seen some explosiveness from him...He’s very good in the offseason, works his tail off...he’s been outstanding, really shining these last couple days and showing the speed and explosiveness and the catching ability that were the reasons we brought him over here.” (Miami Herald)|
FF Today's Take: Ireland has singing the praises of Thomas for most of the preseason and, to his credit, the third-year back did show some niftiness in the Dolphins' exhibition win over Jacksonville. Regarding Wallace, CBS' Jason LaConfora reported earlier in the day that reserve CB Nolan Carroll "had his way" with the ex-Steeler during OTAs. With that said, Wallace could simply be taking his time adjusting to the new offense, but he's a dicey WR2 option right now.
