Wake also took part in a sack drill that required hand and hip movement. He presumably isn't ready to make hard cuts, but it does seem he's on/ahead of schedule in his recovery from the torn Achilles he suffered in late October. The 34-year-old defensive end is believed to be seeking an extension as he enters the final year of his contract, and the
Wake is 34 and coming off a torn Achilles, so the team wants to reduce his $8.3 million salary and $9.8 million cap hit for 2016. Wake and the Dolphins want to continue their marriage, but the Dolphins may decide to move on if he refuses to take any kind of pay cut.
Cameron Wake (Achilles) and the Miami Dolphins are currently negotiating a contract extension, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Wake is due to make $8.4 million this season which is a bit much for a defensive end coming off an Achilles injury. The Dolphins would like him back but at a reduced rate. It remains to be seen if Wake will give the team a discount or just call their bluff and see what his value would be on the open market should the team cut him.
Wake is coming off an Achilles tear and at 34 years of age his best days could be behind him. The Dolphins would save $8.4 million against the cap by cutting him. It is more likely, however, that the team will try to bring Wake back at a lower salary as even part-time pass rushers have value in the NFL.
Cameron Wake (Achilles) was placed on season-ending IR on Saturday, Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reports.
The Miami Dolphins will be without their best pass rusher for the remainder of the year as a result of a torn Achilles' tendon, suffered in Thursday's loss to New England. Derrick Shelby is expected to replace Wake in the starting lineup for Miami.
