8/24/22 UPDATE: Miami Dolphins Orange Jersey Award TRACKER; the first recipient wears orange once more!

The Miami Dolphins are hosting the Philadelphia Eagles for the first day of their joint practice sessions in South Florida this morning. In their previous joint practices against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the orange jersey was left back in Miami - presumably because the Bucs use orange jerseys as their “non-contact” jersey. However, against the Eagles, the orange jersey is alive and well.

Who is wearing the orange threads at today’s practice?

Second-year defensive stud, Jaelan Phillips, was given the honor!

Phillips was the very first winner of the orange practice jersey - a jersey that is awarded to the previous session’s best performer. As training camp nears its conclusion, Jaelan has once again been honored.

The Dolphins are hoping for a big leap from Phillips, which is saying a lot since he already holds the record for most sacks by a Dolphins rookie. According to camp reports, he is already meeting those expectations.
