Dolphins, Buccaneers to hold joint workouts ahead of preseason game in Tampa – The Denver Post

Before the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers launch their preseason schedule on Aug. 13, the two teams will hold joint practices in Tampa that week, according to a league source.

Joint training sessions allow teams to work against an opponent during training camp after weeks of restriction on intra-team training reps.

Last season, the Dolphins held joint practices against the Bears before their preseason opener in Chicago, and then the following week at home against the Atlanta Falcons.

Miami’s other two preseason games in 2022 will be at Hard Rock Stadium the following Saturdays, against the Las Vegas Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles. Since the NFL expanded its regular season schedule from 16 to 17 games, it also cut one preseason game from the slate — from four to three.

The Dolphins lost to the Buccaneers in Tampa last October in a 45-17 loss in which quarterback Tom Brady threw for 411 yards and five touchdowns.

Brady has since been linked to the Dolphins several times this offseason. First, a 2020 meeting between Brady and the Dolphins was referenced in former Miami coach Brian Flores’ class action lawsuit against the NFL and some of its teams for racist hiring practices. Later, several reports detailed mutual interest in Brady joining the team in some sort of front office or ownership role and possibly playing quarterback.

Brady, who will turn 45 in August, retired and then did not retire this offseason, has since accepted a position as an NFL game day analyst for FOX at the end of his playing career, when it may be.
