Miami Dolphins Give Cameron Wake $49 million Extension

The Miami Dolphins have agreed to a 4 year, $49 million extension with OLB Cameron Wake, according to the Miami Dolphins.

Wake, who might have been the most underpaid player in the league, didn't attend the non-mandatory workouts that the Dolphins held about two weeks ago. We weren't quite sure how long he was planning on not attending, and thankfully we didn't have to get to that point.

He is widely considered to be one of the best pass-rushers in the NFL. Pro Football Focus actually had him ranked as the best 3-4 outside linebacker and the 16th best player in the NFL.

I have to say that I'm thrilled that the two sides were able to reach an agreement. Wake is an extremely valuable part of the Dolphins defense, and now we have him for four more years. He is a high-character player that is exactly the type of player that new head coach Joe Philbin is looking for.

Hopefully newly drafted pass-rusher Olivier Vernon is able to strengthen this pass-rushing group to a level close to that of the Super Bowl champion New York Giants.

Here is a little highlight video that I found. Hopefully you guys like it.
