Defensive end Mario Williams joined the Dolphins this offseason after a 2015 season with the Bills that featured complaints from and about him.

Williams wasn’t happy with the way he was used on defense in Buffalo and members of the team weren’t happy with the effort that Williams put forth on a weekly basis. Williams said earlier this offseason that he expects the defense in Miami to be more to his liking and this week he promised that his attitude won’t be an issue in 2016.

“The No. 1 thing that you can definitely look forward to [from me] is attitude,” Williams said, via the team’s website. “I think any year, no matter what happens previous, you can’t look at the future or anything like that, but you can handle right now. And my biggest thing, every day I wake up is going to be the best attitude I’ve ever had. And with attitude, everything is going to follow. I know for sure I’m going to be out there humming 100 miles per hour and it’s going to be full attitude.”

With Williams, Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh up front, there’s reason to think the Dolphins will be better up front under new defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. Of course, there have been reasons to think the Dolphins would be better heading into the last few seasons and the results have been uniformly disappointing once the games began so talk will only go so far in Miami this time around.
