Vacation time in Miami

Happy Fourth of July, Miami Dolphins fans. I hope everyone enjoys their holiday weekend.

Also, here is a quick note to pass along: It's time to take an extended vacation before the start of training camp. I will be away from ESPN.com's Dolphins page until July 21.

But the good news is there will be plenty of original material posted each day on the Dolphins page to check out. I have a few surprises up my sleeve that you will enjoy in this space. So keep checking back. You can also follow my always entertaining Twitter account @JamesWalkerNFL if you're into social media. (That's also where I stash most of my good jokes.)

It's been an exciting offseason of organized team activities and minicamps in South Florida. I learned a lot about what to expect from this year's Dolphins. After vacation, we will all be just a few days away from training camp.

Thanks for being loyal readers, Dolphins fans. See you soon.
