He posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons as a wide receiver in the National Football League, but Jaylen Waddle is not satisfied.

As a former University of Alabama standout, the Houston native got bounced from the playoffs in the AFC Wild Card matchup between Miami and Buffalo. Waddle did not have his best performance, totaling three catches (seven targets) for 44 yards.

He expressed his frustration to reporters after the game. Waddle is one-half of the dynamic duo for the Dolphins, and he accumulated six 100-yard performances for the 2022 season. He ranks seventh in the league among receivers for yards (1,356) and first for yards per reception (18.1). Waddle caught 75 passes, including eight for touchdowns. The former first-round selection of the 2021 NFL Draft said he will take steps forward to improve his game. David Furones of the Sun Sentinel reported the story.

Tua Tagovailoa is set to return as the Dolphins’ starting quarterback next season.

Waddle looks forward to becoming even better with his signal-caller.
