Cameron Wake: 'All Is Well' With New Contract

Cameron Wake, now armed with a four-year contract, said 'all is well' in an interview with Jason Jackson on 790 The Ticket in Miami on Tuesday. Wake, who led the team in sacks last season with eight and-a-half, talked about putting his foot down to get this new extension while on the air with Jackson.

There's a business side of football and there's a player side. You try your best to make sure you keep the two separate, but sometimes they cross paths. At the end of the day the Dolphins organization I think they made the right decision and I got the extension, but at the end of the day I just said I am here to play ball and it all worked out. All is well.

Wake, who had missed workouts prior to the NFL Draft, signed a four-year, $49 million this past weekend, with a $20 million in guaranteed money to boot. Wake has been one of the most surprisingly successful pass rushers in the NFL, after having spent much of his collegiate career at Penn State as a run stopper.

Cameron Wake Agrees To 4-Year Contract Extension With Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins and pass rusher Cameron Wake agreed to a four-year, $49 million contract extension over the weekend, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal includes $20 million in guaranteed money. Additional contract details were unknown on Sunday morning.

Wake sat out veteran workouts prior to the draft, displeased about the lack of a new deal. This season was the final year of the deal he originally signed with the Dolphins in 2009. Wake attended conditioning workouts on April 20, with his contract issue still unresolved. Both Wake's agent and the Dolphins were working on a deal at that time. The draft put it on the back burner for a week or so.

Wake led Miami with eight and a half sacks last season. The year before that he had 14 sacks, and a total of 28 coming to the NFL three years ago.
