Mike Wallace says Ryan Tannehill will be great


Mike Wallace has followed LeBron James and taken his talents to south beach. And while he is leaving a two time Super Bowl champion quarterback to catch balls from a young one still looking to prove himself he isn’t stressed about it.

In fact, he thinks Ryan might be able to throw the ball further than Ben Roethlisberger.

“Both have strong arms. Ryan has a cannon, can really fling it,” Wallace told the Miami Herald. “Ryan may be able to throw the ball a little farther than Ben. Obviously, Ben is more experienced in game time experience. The way it’s going, it won’t take long for Ryan to be one of the great quarterbacks. I feel like we can make a lot of big plays.”

Mike Wallace has been pigeonholed as a one trick pony only capable of going deep, so a quarterback with a big arm is an essential.

“By the time we get to training camp, we’ll be fine. We throw two to three times after practice every day,” Wallace said. “I like this team. I like how everybody works. Not much talking, just grinding. That’s the way it should be. I’m one of the older guys on this team, so it’s different than being in Pittsburgh.”
