Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace told The Palm Beach Post on Aug. 19 that his team is not getting the benefit of the doubt on illegal contact penalties.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace feels his team is on the short end of illegal contact penalty calls. 

Wallace poured out his sentiments to The Palm Beach Post's Andrew Abramson on Aug. 19:

"Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace can't avoid questions about his chemistry with Ryan Tannehill. And he's OK with it. 

"Wallace is the NFL's highest-paid receiver this season at $15.5 million, yet he scored a career-low five touchdowns last year. He did have a career-high 73 receptions to go with 930 yards. 

"Miami signed him to give Tannehill a deep threat, so Wallace is asked constantly whether he needs to fight harder for receptions or Tannehill needs to be more accurate. 

"'They deserve to ask that when they're not hitting on them,' Wallace said Tuesday. 'I don't have a problem with it -- just got to keep working at it, keep doing it every single day.'

"As much as fans want them to succeed, Wallace said he and Tannehill want it even more. 

"'I can guarantee you we want to do it more than they want us to hit,' Wallace said. 'We definitely want to get in a game and hit a couple.'

"The one time Tannehill looked for Wallace deep in Saturday's preseason win over Tampa Bay, a defender broke up the pass. Wallace later said he was held. 

"On Tuesday, Wallace was asked if the NFL's new emphasis on penalizing illegal contact is helping receivers. 

"'Not on our team,' he said. 'We don't get those calls. 

"'I don't know why. That's not our job to play for calls. We play to play football and make plays. The call, that's extra.'"

In another recent team development, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official website wrote about the prospects of Western Michigan kicker John Potter cracking the team's regular-season roster:

"Potter, who was a good enough kicking prospect when he came out of Western Michigan that he was selected in the 2012 draft, is getting another chance these days with the Dolphins. 

"After making two long field goal attempts in the Dolphins' 20-14 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday night, he sure looks like he intends of taking advantage of this opportunity. 

"'It's definitely an exciting opportunity for me,' Potter said after practice Tuesday. I'm just going to go out there and make every kick that they gave me the opportunity to do. And I'm very lucky that they have trusted me up to this point, so hopefully they continue to give me those opportunities to make long kicks.'

"Things have happened pretty fast for Potter since he got the call from the Dolphins last Thursday. 

"He flew down to South Florida that day, was on the team plane to Tampa the following day and was getting prepared to handle the kickoff chores against the Buccaneers when things changed.

"Incumbent kicker Caleb Sturgis had returned to practice a couple of days earlier after dealing with a groin injury, but he appeared to aggravate the injury during pregame warmups. 

"'I knew I was going to be doing kickoffs and then sometime during warmups they let me know that I was going to be talking about all the kicks,' Potter said. 'It was actually right when we (were) starting to do full team field goal with snap and hold and kick. And I was feeling pretty good kicking at that point, so it was exciting. I didn't have any time to think about it, really. You just move into it. It was perfect.'

"With Sturgis expected to be sidelined several days with the latest setback, it leaves Potter to handle all the kicking duties in practice and possibly in the third preseason game, Saturday night against the Dallas Cowboys. 

"In practice Tuesday, Potter made three of his four field goal attempts, connecting from 41, 44 and 47 yards before clanking his last attempt fro 51 yards off the left upright. 

On Monday, head coach Joe Philbin declined to commit to anything regarding the kicker position. 

 

"'They haven't told me anything, but you really just have to go out and pretend like every opportunity is going to be your last,' Potter said. 'You have to make every kick that they give you count because even if I do stay around for these last two preseason games, you never know if you're going to get another field goal attempt. So you just have to go out there when they tell you to and make it happen.'"
