Stills was acquired for inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round pick.
Despite being the Dolphins’ new deep threat at wide receiver, Stills said that he does not see himself as a replacement.
“I don’t think I was brought into replace anybody. I’m just here to do whatever I can to help the team win. Mike is a great player, and I’ve looked up to everything he’s done,” Stills said to ESPN.com.
Stills broke out in his second season with the Saints as he caught 63 passes for 931 yards and three touchdowns, and his career is only getting started at age 22.
Wallace was a locker-room headache for the Dolphins, and his chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill was never able to click.
Despite Stills’ comments, he is expected to become the primary deep threat for the Dolphins and may make the passing game dangerous if Tannehill can continue to improve and develop chemistry with the former Saints receiver.
