2015 Dolphins Training Camp Report: Day 2

Dolphins hit the field day 2

Until today, I was smarting over the kicking game after one day of training camp. Since I absolutely can appreciate kickers, Andrew Franks hit the big kicks today versus not much of a rush.  Franks you see is in competition with incumbent third-year kicker Caleb Sturgis.  After going 4/4 on his kicks today Franks is starting to turn some heads.
