The Dolphins will have no rookie training camp holdouts.

Not after third-round pick Michael Deiter agreed to terms Friday morning.

Deiter, a guard out of Wisconsin, was the last of the Dolphins’ six draft picks to agree to a contract. These deals have more or less become a formality with the new rookie wage scale, and once-common holdouts are basically unheard of now.

Deiter, 6-foot-5 and 309 pounds, lined up at left and right guard during the team’s offseason conditioning program. He was a second-team all-American and made the all-conference his final two seasons in Madison.

Dolphins players and most coaches started their summer vacation after last week’s mandatory minicamp. While the Dolphins have yet to announce a training camp schedule, it is expected to start on or around July 25. They will travel to Tampa for joint practices with the Buccaneers on Aug. 13-14 before playing them in the preseason.
