A joint practice between the Miami Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be held in Tampa from Aug. 10-11, the Buccaneers announced Thursday as part of their training camp schedule.
Combined training dates on Wednesday and Thursday are standard NFL dates ahead of Saturday’s preseason game at Raymond James Stadium on Aug. 13.
The Dolphins’ full training camp roster has not been released, but the team is expected to begin training in the last week of July.
The Dolphins’ preseason schedule also includes home games against the Las Vegas Raiders on Aug. 20 and the Philadelphia Eagles on Aug. 27. New coach Mike McDaniel has said the team will also host a joint practice with the Eagles ahead of the show.
The purpose of NFL co-workouts is to have teams work out with opponents in preseason with multiple pre-workouts and post-workouts.
Last season, Miami visited the Chicago Bears and hosted the Atlanta Falcons before their preseason games with two NFC teams.
The Dolphins and Buccaneers have been linked throughout the offseason, largely because of Miami’s reported pursuit of seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady, either for a front office role in the organization or for that role. . Brady, who retired this offseason and then returned to the Buccaneers, will seriously take on a broadcast role on Fox after retirement, whenever that comes.
