The Dolphins entered 2007 in the process of rebuilding under new head coach Cam Cameron, the former offensive coordinator for the San Diego Chargers. The coaching staff has already undergone significant changes, with approximately twelve coaches newly hired or re-assigned. Cameron has also made various changes to the team's roster, with a more than a dozen players being added or re-signed and just as many being released, traded or allowed to sign elsewhere. The Dolphins won their first (and only) game of the 2007 NFL season against the Baltimore Ravens in overtime on December 16.

Notable offseason events

Resignation of Nick Saban

During the 2006 season, rumors persisted of then-Dolphins head coach Nick Saban leaving for the University of Alabama at season's end. Saban denied these rumors throughout the season, to the point where on December 21 he told the South Florida media "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach."cite web | title = After repeated denials, Saban takes Bama job | work = ESPN.com | url = http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2718488 | accessdate = 15 June | accessyear = 2007 ] Whether or not he meant it at the time is unknown, but Saban's stance softened after the season, and on January 3, 2007 Saban resigned from the Dolphins to become the new head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide.cite web | title = After repeated denials, Saban takes Bama job | work = ESPN.com | url = http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2718488 | accessdate = 15 June | accessyear = 2007 ]

Historic game in London

On February 2 2007, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the Dolphins and New York Giants would play a game at London, England's Wembley Stadium. The game —- the second regular season NFL game to take place outside of the United States and first to take place outside of North America -— counted as a home game for the Dolphins. It took place Sunday, October 28 (Week 8) with kick off at 1:00 PM ET (6:00 PM local London time). It was broadcast on FOX.

Failed trade of Dan Wilkinson

On March 2, the Denver Broncos acquired defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson from the Dolphins in exchange for a sixth-round draft choice in the 2007 NFL Draft.

Opening training camp roster

The following is the Miami Dolphins' roster at the time 2007 training camp opened on July 27:Special Teams

The Dolphins' roster was not finalized immediately after cuts, however. Three players were claimed off waivers by the Dolphins from other teams, requiring an additional three roster moves. On September 2, wide receiver Kerry Reed and center Johnathan Ingram were waived, while rookie center/guard Drew Mormino was played in season-ending Injured Reserve with a shoulder injury. The Dolphins claimed two players off waivers from the San Diego Chargers - wide receiver Greg Camarillo and offensive tackle Cory Lekkerkerker. Meanwhile, offensive lineman Gene Mruczkowski was claimed off waivers from the New England Patriots.

Five days later, defensive end Rob Ninkovich was claimed off waivers from the New Orleans Saints. To make room for him, rookie linebacker Kelvin Smith was waived.

Two Dolphins players changed their jersey numbers following the preseason. Long snapper John Denney, who wore No. 97 the first two years of his career, switched to No. 92. Undrafted rookie linebacker Edmond Miles switched from No. 48 to 50 to comply with NFL rules.

Practice squad

On September 2 the Dolphins made five additions to their practice squad, all of which among the players cut by the team the day before. Those players were tight end Aaron Halterman, safety Tuff Harris, guard Marquay Love and offensive tackle Julius Wilson and wide receiver Marvin Allen. As the international practice squad player, Allen must remain on the team's practice squad all year and does not count toward the eight-man limit.

Two days later, the Dolphins signed three more players - guard Tala Esera, wide receiver Kerry Reed and wide receiver Chandler Williams - to their practice squad. Esera and Reed were with the Dolphins in preseason and released earlier in the month. Chandler, meanwhile, was a seventh-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2007 NFL Draft out of Florida International University. He was waived by the team during final cuts on September 1.
