The Miami Dolphins have a deadline for their stadium roof: Aug. 25.
That’s when the team will host its first 2016 preseason game, the NFL announced Thursday.
So the franchise has a little under five months to complete all work on the stadium’s shade canopy. The Dolphins insisted recently it will be, saying that nearly half-billion dollar renovation project is on pace. Adding to the pressure: the game against the Falcons will air nationally on NBC.
