Between the end of the season - whether that is the regular season or the post-season for each team - and the start of training camp in July, there is only one mandatory period of training each team can hold, the veteran minicamp. This week features that workout session for the Miami Dolphins, giving them three days of on-field practices, with the first practice happening this morning.

The Dolphins will run their minicamp through June 7. During this session, the team can run 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills, but there will not be any live contact allowed.

Miami has had perfect attendance through their voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) so far this year, so there should not be any issue with players not showing up for the minicamp.

The Dolphins will hold one more OTA session from June 11-14.

Miami still has four rookies who have not signed a contract with the team, but they will be allowed to practice. The Dolphins will be expected to negotiate in good faith with the player should an injury occur during the week.
