    http://www.miamidolphins.com/newsite/news/top_story.asp?contentID=5280 Thankfully for the players, the sun ducked behind a cloud just in time for the first go-around of 7-on-7 drills this morning. This time the offense practiced 1st-and-10 and 2nd-and-5 situations, but only in shirts, shorts and helmets, no shells or pads. The full-pads practice will be tonight at 6:45 and Cameron said it will be an extended practice.

    What these drills really were all about was giving some of the younger players a chance to show what they can do. Players like rookie receiver Michael Malone and tight end Aaron Halterman benefited, with Halterman sporting cut-off sleeves to counter the heat.

    "That will be our routine on a special teams day," head coach Cam Cameron said. "After the special teams practice in the morning we'll follow it up with an additional period with our first and second-year players and anybody that we on the coaching staff feel needs some extra work."

    After fullback Reagan Mauia watched a screen pass by rookie quarterback John Beck skip off his hands, Malone made a nice diving catch near the sideline of a deep ball.

    Beck showed off his accuracy and touch on a perfectly thrown bomb down the middle to rookie Ted Ginn, Jr., dropping it in between defensive backs Tuff Harris and Shirdonya Mitchell. The play drew approval from the fans that got to see the whole thing develop, and Cameron described it as "a play that was drawn up in the dirt" to keep the young defensive backs on their toes. He wanted it to be an indication that offenses do adjust.
