While Wallace and Keller should help to spread the field, Gibson expects to play a complementary role.

“They’re going to do a great job of opening things up,” he said. “My role I guess is to be the adjuster, see what happens. I could be inside, outside. I might line up in the backfield. Who knows.”

Regardless, Gibson said he likes the idea of catching Tannehill’s passes.

“I really think he’s going to be one of the better young quarterbacks in the NFL,” Gibson said. “He has a big arm and is very intelligent, and that will take him a long way.”

Gibson and Keller have both thrived against the Dolphins. In nine games against Miami, Keller had 35 catches for 395 yards and four TDs, and those performances made an impression on Miami general manager Jeff Ireland.

“We have been able to see firsthand what kind of impact he brings to an offense,” Ireland said.

Gibson made a spectacular one-handed catch in the Rams’ loss to Miami last October, a play that came up during his contract negotiations with Philbin and Ireland.

“They might have mentioned it once or twice,” Gibson said. “That’s a catch you probably won’t see too often. I can’t say I’ve made that catch before. My big thing is just to be consistent.”
