The Miami Dolphins will report to camp next month as they kick-off the 2018 NFL season with what they hope will be a huge year.
On July 18th the rookie class will report to training camp according to a release of all teams dates on NFL.com. It is an early start for the rookies. The veterans on the other hand will start their camp session on July 25th.
First contact practice should be around the 28th or 30th. The Dolphins typically go through conditioning tests and non-contact drills the first couple of days of camp. The rookies will see a lot of film work and class sessions until the veterans arrive almost a week later.
Miami has several players coming back from significant injuries. Those players, Ryan Tannehill, Tony Lippett, and Raekwon McMillan to name a few, are key members of the team and their healthy return will be paramount to any attempt at a winning season.
The Dolphins finished last season 6-10 and were in disarray all year after losing Tannehill in training camp as well as McMillan who missed his entire rookie season.

Miami is hoping for a fast start to the 2018 season which features a tough schedule in 2018. The team went through a lot of off-season change in an effort to change the culture on and off the field. Most notably Ndamukong Suh and Jarvis Landry were replaced as well as Mike Pouncey.
Miami won’t open the season until September but training camp is going to be important given the changes and the new players that have been added to the roster. Continuity will be a key factor in the teams early success.
Actual practice dates and times and those open to the public have not been announced as of yet.
