The Miami Dolphins came into this offseason needing to get support at wide receiver for incoming starter Tua Tagovailoa, and they found their man in Will Fuller. The speedy wideout was expected to see a big pay day in free agency, but he eventually settled on a one-year deal in Miami.
Fuller recently revealed the reason he took a short-term deal with the Dolphins over a longer contract.
In the wideout's eyes, he still needs to prove his worth to the league. He's coming off of a career year in just 11 games played, and he feels that another standout campaign would make teams ready to invest in him.
"I've had my fair share of injuries, and I've been working really hard. I just want to prove to the NFL, to the Dolphins for taking a chance on me, that I'm a player that they would love to have long-term."- Will Fuller
Fuller got off to a blistering start for the Houston Texans in 2020, racking up 53 receptions for 879 yards and 8 TDs before having his season cut short due to suspension. With a career average of 14.9 yards per reception, he's the exact kind of deep threat that will bring another element to Miami's offense, if he can stay healthy.
It sounds like Fuller is eager to improve upon his last season's breakout performance, which is great news for the Dolphins heading into a crucial 2021 campaign where they could be contenders.
