It’s an exciting time for football fans as every team comes in with a clean slate and fresh start, regardless of what happened the previous year.
For the Dolphins, that means moving on from a disappointing 6-10 campaign that saw the team struggle to maintain any kind of consistency on either side of the ball.
That could be mainly attributed to key players suffering major injuries before the schedule even began, such as quarterback Ryan Tannehill and linebacker Raekwon McMillan.
Miami enters its 2018 camp healthy and ready to get back to the success of 2016, when the team won 10 games and made the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
The first training camp practice open to fans will take place on Thursday, July 26th at 8:30 a.m. at the Baptist Health Training Facility in Davie.
It’s located at 7500 Southwest 30th Street, Davie, FL 33314.
Free parking is available at the Nova Southeastern University LRITC garage, located near the intersection of University Drive and Southwest 30th Street, between Griffin Road and I-595.READ MORE: ‘Greyson’s Law’ To Add Protections For Children At Risk Of Parental Harm
