Cameron Wake, Dolphins Agree To 4-Year, $49 Million Extension

The Miami Dolphins and Cameron Wake agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension worth $49 million, according to a report from's Jason La Canfora. Wake confirmed the news on his Twitter account, tweeting out "#DoneDeal" along with a photo of a pen.

After starting his career in the Canadian Football League, the veteran pass rusher has really come on for the Dolphins, starting 30 of 32 games over the past two seasons. He's recorded 22.5 sacks over that span and was set to make $615,000 this year in the final season of a four-year contract.

Wake had been unhappy with that contract and was absent from the start of Miami's voluntary offseason workouts, but later met with new coach Joe Philbin and joined the team at the end of April. According to La Canfora, his new deal includes $20 million in guaranteed money. The deal sets him up to be the Dolphins' primary pass rusher for the next few years, anchoring the defense on the outside.

Cameron Wake Joins Dolphins Workouts

The Miami Dolphins are gearing up for their first season under new head coach Joe Philbin, but things aren't going perfectly smooth. Last week, linebacker Cameron Wake was reported to be sitting out of voluntary team workouts. Wake was said to be displeased that he had not received a contract extension to keep him with the team beyond 2012.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Wake has rejoined the team for conditioning workouts this week.

"Cameron felt like he had to go in to speak with Joe Philbin face to face, man to man, out of respect to him as a new coach," said agent Paul Sheehy, who represents Wake. "They spoke, and Cameron decided to work with his teammates during this voluntary period, while I work on the business side of things with the Dolphins."

The two sides will continue to work toward a long-term contract extension. Since debuting with the Dolphins in 2009, Wake has 122 tackles, 28 sacks and four forced fumbles.
