It's almost time for some football, Miami Dolphins fans!

The Fins will hit the practice fields for the first full workout of their training camp on Thursday morning.

The the team’s scheduled to report to their training facility on the campus of Nova Southeastern University in Davie.

The Dolphins will open their preseason schedule on Thursday, August 9th when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers along.

And though training begins today in Davie, the Dolphins may change their standard facility sooner rather than later. 

Council members from the City of Miami Gardens met Wednesday night to discuss building a new $50 million training facility for the Dolphins behind Hard Rock Stadium. 

City officials considered refunding the Dolphins $500,000 per year off their tax bill once the facility is built.

Miami Gardens leaders believe the team’s presence will bring more events and jobs to the area.

During talks, Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert said, “Miami Beach has a beach, they have water. We have a stadium. We [are] the Miami Dolphins and now we have their football headquarters, too. So that’s what we looking at and I’m hopeful that this will be just another thing that increases the value along that corridor, activity along that corridor [and] creates jobs along that corridor.”

Miami Dolphins Senior Director of Legal Affairs Marcus Bach said the facility that would be developed would be private.

Still, no final decision was made at the council meeting.

Another issue facing the team surrounds a report that the Dolphins brass plans to discipline players who kneel during the National Anthem. Among the punishments, a four-game suspension.

The NFL said the league’s policy regarding the Anthem is still being negotiated.
