Dolphins training camp scheduled with rookie reporting first

NFL: Miami Dolphins-Minicamp Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL allows teams to bring rookies to training camp ahead of the veterans, an option that some teams choose to use and some do not. This year, the Miami Dolphins will join the group of teams that have the rookies come in early, using that time as a week to conduct classroom and film work, while continuing to expose the rookies to the team’s playbook. The report dates for all 32 teams were released on Thursday.

The Dolphins, according to NFL Vice President of Football Communications Michael Signora will have the rookies head into their Davie, Florida facilities on July 20. The veterans will then follow on July 26.

That will likely mean the first practice - which may be open to the public, though the Dolphins have not yet released that schedule - will be on July 27. Teams cannot conduct full padded practice until the third day of camp. The Dolphins will conduct two joint practices with the Philadelphia Eagles this summer, ahead of the teams’ Preseason Week 3 contest.

The Dolphins’ preseason schedule will be:

Week 1 - Thursday, August 10

Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins
7pm ET

Week 2 - Thursday, August 17

Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins
7pm ET

Week 3 - Thursday, August 24

Miami Dolphins at Philadelphia Eagles
