Dolphins coach is in unfamiliar transition period

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin knows he’s in for a bit of a culture shock when he finally assembles his team in June at the mandatory mini-camp.

The Dolphins, as expected, have been one of the busiest teams in free agency. They started with a ton of cap room, and so far have added eight players expected to compete for starting positions, if not be given them outright: receivers Mike Wallace (Steelers) and Brandon Gibson (Rams), linebackers Dannell Ellerbe (Ravens) and Philip Wheeler (Raiders), tight end Dustin Keller (Jets), defensive end Vaughn Martin (Chargers), guard Lance Louis (Bears), and cornerback Brent Grimes (Falcons).
