The Splash Zone 12/8/21: Will Jaylen Waddle Break A Rookie Record?

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: New York Giants at Miami Dolphins Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

In his rookie year, Jaylen Waddle has 86 receptions through 13 games. Anquan Boldin currently holds the record for most receptions by a rookie with 101, way back in 2003. So if my math is correct, Waddle needs to catch 16 more passes to break that record. He hasn’t had a lot of flashy plays, but Waddle has been consistent in catching the football. I think we all expected Waddle to be a deep threat, but that just hasn’t happened due to some offensive issues, mainly revolving around the Dolphins offensive line not being able to block.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
