Tannehill likes the look of Dolphins four-wide package

The Dolphins spent the offseason insulating second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill with weapons.

And a first look in OTAs at a four-wide package had him thinking big things were possible.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins lined up with wide receivers Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson and tight end Dustin Keller on the field together Tuesday, a potentially potent group.

A year ago, that would have been Hartline, Anthony Armstrong, Davone Bess and Anthony Fasano.

So yes, that’s an upgrade.

“Yeah you know we’re still learning, but I’m excited about what I see from those guys,” Tannehill said. “They’re all getting a grasp on the offense and we’re starting to get a lot of reps with each other, so [we’re going to] continue to work that to get better.

I’m excited about what they bring to the team and what they showed today.”

Rainy conditions made it hard for the group to show their speed, and it’s still early in the installation process, so it’s hard to know how much of the package the Dolphins intend to use.

But unlike last year, they have multiple options in the passing game, which takes away that excuse if Tannehill doesn’t continue to improve.
