062014-WeekInreviewIt was the final week of the offseason program for the Miami Dolphins, as the team went through their final paces.The team will now take a month off before training camp later this July. This past Tuesday through Thursday, the team had its mandatory minicamp. Minicamp featured two regular practices, and a third composed of a scrimmage between the team, as the Dolphins were split up into aqua and white team. It was a rousing way to close out the offseason program, with both the offense and defense putting on productive showings.

With that in mind, let’s take a look back and recap the week that was for the Dolphins:
