Mike Wallace has said that he must keep "pushing" to build his chemistry with Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
The wide receiver signed a five-year contract with the AFC East side earlier this year after coming to the end of his previous deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
After scoring a touchdown during the Dolphins' defeat to the Houston Texans last night, the 27-year-old told reporters: "Just catching passes from him in my first game was fun and good, got the monkey off our back. Just got to keep working hard every day just to get on the same page. We're going to get there, but we gotta keep pushing.
"I missed like a week-and-a-half because of my groin you know, so the first couple of days of camp we weren't doing too many plays. We were just doing base stuff, but as it was getting closer to real time, we just did more stuff at practice. Just getting a little bit more opportunities, but I think they will keep coming.
"We did a good job, but not good enough. We didn't get the win, but we started slow. We kind of picked it up too in the middle of the first quarter, got a good drive and we've just got to start faster."
Wallace scored eight touchdowns for 836 receiving yards for the Steelers last season.
