The Falcons plan to conduct joint practices with the Miami Dolphins before playing them in the preseason. These sessions will occur on Aug. 8 and 9, before the scheduled contest on Aug. 11 at Hard Rock Stadium.
One question for every Falcons position group: Part I, the offense | Part II, the defenseFalcons announced 2023 preseason scheduleHow the Falcons decided on Bijan Robinson in the 2023 NFL DraftFalcons signed WR J.J. Arecega-WhitesideQuestion of the Week: Biggest rookie impact (not Bijan); New Falcon we're excited to see
The news was first reported by NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe.
Joint practices have been a regular occurrence during the Arthur Smith era. The Falcons held practices like this against Miami in 2021 and twice in 2022, traveling to meet the New York Jets while hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars for preseason practices.
There's great value in facing off against another team, especially when the sessions are conducted well and free of post-play skirmishes. They offer quality work at a high intensity while lessening the injury risk associated with actual game play.
The Falcons learned a ton about their 2021 team when they locked horns with the Dolphins at their state-of-the-art training complex. There's confidence the team can do so again in 2023, brining a far better roster down to Miami Gardens, Fla. Jessie Bates III, Calais Campbell and No. 8 overall pick Bijan Robinson are now lighting the marquee. A.J. Terrell and Jeff Okudah will have their hands full with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, two of the most dynamic receivers in the league.
The Dolphins are first up on the Falcons' preseason slate, with the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers following after that.
