Jaylen Waddle of the Dolphins predicts a boost from speed ...

After joining the Miami Dolphins in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs last month, the former would likely have to schedule a race with one of his new teammates to demonstrate that "The Cheetah" was now the fastest in Miami.

The wide receiver chose not to surprise Hill the player who he selected to compete.

"I already knew this was coming as I saw it," said a participant in a series of episodes of the "I Am Athlete." "I'm literally in the middle of training. My trainer comes: 'Man, you know,' said the narrator.... I knew he'll try to race. Let me get on these legs very quickly.' Hit the legs.

"I already knew that was coming."

Another New Dolphin, Raheem Mostert, a free-agent running back, is likely to run for the week in a hefty match.

In 2021, Miami's offense gained 4.8 yards per play, whereas only three NFL teams were less productive on a per-snaps ratio.


Waddle believes the new speed will give the Dolphins a turbo boost.

It's unmatched. You can try to game plan for it, says the coach. I'm glad it will change everything from in the backfield, running game, passing game, and play-action. It's going to be a learning experience, but it's also a lot of fun....

"Obviously, we had to get to work to get the stamp of being one of them high-powered offenses. I feel like with who we got, if we put it together, we should be all right. We just got to work."

Waddle was the sixth player to be selected in the NFL Draft in 2021 and set an NFL rookie record with 104 receptions. Waddle had 1,015 receiving yards and scored six touchdown passes for Miami.

In 2021, Hill scored 111 passes for 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns.

Hill received six Pro Bowl invitations and made first-team All-Pro three times during his NFL career. He has accumulated 479 passes for 6,630 yards with 56 touchdowns in six seasons with Kansas City.

"I think I'm going to learn a lot about playing with Hill." "He's been in the league for seven years. Had tremendous success. I think he's a six-time Pro Bowler, like, every year. He's got a lot of knowledge, so I know he's going to be willing to teach it."

Waddle's ability to pick up from Hill is one thing he wants to gain from him. yards after a catch.

I think my average was like 9.5, or something like that, a catch, he said. I got to show some YAC. I got to be YAC-crazy out there. I had 9.5, so that is definitely something I have learned to show. I just got to go out there and show it.
