Fins Report To Training Camp July 20

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The month of July is often one of the slowest months of the year for sports fans. Basketball and hockey are finished and baseball is hitting the All-Star Break. But, fear not football fans, because the start of Miami Dolphins training camp is less than three weeks away.

The NFL released the reporting dates for all 32 teams this week and the Dolphins will have one of the earliest reporting dates with rookies and veterans reporting to the team's facility in Davie on July 20.

The Dolphins will be playing an extra preseason game this season. The Fins are scheduled to kick off the NFL's preseason in the annual Hall of Fame game against the Dallas Cowboys. The Dolphins will then play the Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texas on the road.

The Fins will finish off the preseason with a pair of preseason games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints. You can get involved with the Buccaneers and Saints games through CBSMiami's Ultimate Fan Contest by clicking here.

Expectations are growing for the Dolphins in 2013 after major money was invested in free agency. The Fins brought in wide receivers Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson, tight end Dustin Keller, along with several key defensive starters.

If the team can come together and quarterback Ryan Tannehill develops, a weakened New England Patriots team could be vulnerable to the Dolphins making a charge for the AFC East championship.
