The new identity of the Miami Dolphins under first-year head coach Joe Philbin begins to take shape as the team assembles for the start of training camp in Davie, Fla. Coaches take the players through week one of on-field drills.
A 30-person NFL Films crew is living at the Dolphins training camp, shooting up to 1,200 hours of video over the course of the series. Camera and sound crews are given unrestricted access to the players’ and coaches’ meeting rooms, training facilities, living quarters and practice fields.
