Jaylen Waddle Shows off Hoops Skills with New Teammate
Former Alabama wideout Jaylen Waddle and his newest partner, Tyreek Hill, are two of the NFL's most athletically gifted players on the football field any given Sunday.
It would appear as though the two may be equally as gifted on a court as well.
In a video posted by Overtime on Twitter, Waddle and Hill can be seen dominating in a basketball game hosted by Courtside Adult Basketball League in Miami.
Hill spends most of the clip showing off his shooting and ball-handling skills, but Waddle can be seen throughout the minute long mashup flying to the rim for acrobatic layups and blocks.
It's worth noting that Waddle played basketball at Episcopal High School in Bellaire, TX before joining the Crimson Tide and was known for assaulting the rim from time to time.
Last season, Waddle brought versatility and explosiveness to a Dolphins team that lacked it prior to his arrival. As a rookie, the sixth overall pick hauled in 104 passes for over 1,000 yards and six touchdowns, breaking Anquan Bolding's previous rookie reception record.
Now, entering Waddle's second season, Miami made some serious moves in the offseason with the acquisition of Hill and looks to take a leap in 2022.
Hill spent the first six seasons of his career with the Kansas City Chiefs before ultimately moving on to South Beach. In his first six years, the former West Alabama Tiger hauled in a whopping 479 receptions for 6,630 yards and 56 touchdowns.
With the combination of Waddle and Hill, expect the Dolphins to have one of the league's most potent offenses this season.
