Reunited and it feels so good? Maybe. Waddle will be playing with his college quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa. That certainly helps project him for a quick start to his career, as does the absence of Will Fuller in Week 1 as he serves the remainder of his suspension. Tagovailoa talked about his pass catchers not gaining separation last year, but that shouldn't be an issue with Waddle. Even when Fuller joins the lineup, it might not be a bad thing for Waddle, as he should slide into the slot where he'll be matched up with nickel cornerbacks and safeties. Waddle might be someone who produces quicker than most rookies due to his familiarity with his quarterback.
