The Miami Dolphins continue their 2014 training camp today. We will collect the reports from around the web and bring them to you in one place.

This morning, the Miami Dolphins get back on the practice field for their third day of training camp workouts.  Today's practice, however, is not open to the general public, but instead is limited to season ticket members.

The most important fact about today's practice, though, is not the crowd in the stands.  It's the fact that the players on the field will be wearing pads for the first time this year.  Practice intensity should go up today, and we should start getting a better idea of how the offensive line and running backs look against the defensive line and linebackers.

Yesterday's practice was better than the Friday's first workout, and hopefully it's a stepping stone to an even better practice today.  The snaps did not seem nearly as bad as they were during that first workout, with the Dolphins looking to get center Shelley Smith comfortable with the exchange to quarterback Ryan Tannehill due to the injury to Mike Pouncey during offseason workouts.

The offense was also able to start putting together some good plays, though the defense still clearly was the stronger unit.  What happens when the pads come one?  We shall find out today.

If you are reading this, you probably aren't at the practice, but that doesn't mean you don't have a chance to go to the next one.  You can check out the link to the right (or below on a mobile device) to get all the information you need to attend camp this year.

Practice starts at 8am ET this morning.  We will update the tweets as soon thereafter as we can.
