Linebacker Cameron Wake has been angling for a new contract since the start of the offseason and he’s finally landed one.
Wake, who was set to make $615,000 in the final year of the deal he signed when he jumped from the CFL to the Dolphins, has agreed to terms on a new four-year deal according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Schefter’s report has the total value of the deal at $49 million with $20 million guaranteed, although there are no further reports about structure or whether or not the deal is guaranteed for both skill and injury.
Wake had been engaged in a bit of drama with the Dolphins as he tried to secure this new deal. He skipped the start of offseason workouts, returned after a conversation with coach Joe Philbin and then stopped showing up again a short time later. We’d expect him back with the team full-time now and likely with a smile on his face to boot.
With Wake in the fold, the Dolphins have one less expiring contract to weigh on their minds. Tackle Jake Long, wide receiver Brian Hartline, defensive end Randy Starks and cornerback Sean Smith are all entering the final years of their deals.
