Having Cameron Wake stay in Miami gives the Dolphins the opportunity to have a player of his caliber to become a tutor for any defensive ends’ the Dolphins might draft this year.
According to reports, the two-year contract is worth $19 million with $11 million guaranteed. Wake also received a raise and an added year onto his last contract. 2017 was the final year of his last deal, which is reported to have been $7 million.
Wake is coming off what was a stellar year, which saw him named to his fifth Pro Bowl after accumulating 29 tackles, 11 and a half sacks and five forced fumbles. He also had his first interception for a TD return. He registered all this after coming off a torn Achilles in 2015 where he missed nine games, and the thoughts were that his career was over due to the injury.
Wake has been in the league for over a decade and his resume has been superb. Wake has reached double digits in sacks on four occasions and he has 81 and a half career sacks, which is 11th amongst active players to date. Wake is also second in sacks in Dolphins history and is second only to the great Jason Taylor who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year.
Congratulations Cameron and cannot wait to see what next year will bring with you back in the fold.
