• Center Mike Pouncey refused to comment about attending his own birthday party last weekend wearing a hat with the words “Free Hernandez” — a reference to former University of Florida roommate Aaron Hernandez, who is awaiting trial on a first-degree murder charge.
But asked about a general question about player conduct, Pouncey said: “We get paid a lot of money to act a certain way, and that’s the way we should be acting.”
Coach Joe Philbin refused to say if he discussed the matter with Pouncey but said: “It’s important for every member of this organization — players, coaches — to represent the organization in a first-class manner.”
Unlike Pouncey, his brother — Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey — apologized after wearing the “Free Hernandez” hat.
• Pouncey said “we definitely miss Jake Long” — who signed with St. Louis — but added that Jonathan Martin “is adjusting to the left side. I love it.”
• John Jerry remained with the first team at right guard, as former Chicago Bear Lance Louis works his way back from last November’s knee injury. The Dolphins are listing Jerry at 335 pounds, down from 345 in June. Louis wore a brace on his left knee and doesn’t seem to be at full strength yet.
• Charles Clay and rookie Dion Sims worked with the first and second teams at Sunday’s practice — along with starting tight end Dustin Keller — while Michael Egnew was relegated to the side of the field where the third- and fourth-teamers were practicing.
Dan Carpenter went 10 for 10 on field goals, including makes from 47, 48 and 49 yards. Caleb Sturgis is expected to kick Monday.
• The team said the crowd of 2,700 was the most for a training camp practice since 2006.
