The Miami Dolphins kicked off their first minicamp practice yesterday with a dominating defensive performance. That is to be expected with a defense that didn’t change personal over the offseason and when a new offensive system is being implemented. Though it wasn’t all bad for the offense as Skylar Thompson, the rookie QB, was one of the units best performers according to reports and it also sounds like Lynn Bowden Jr was another bright spot.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
