The Dolphins unquestioned leader on defense over the last 10 seasons has been Cameron Wake, but it sounds like the era of Wake is over in Miami.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that multiple teams have interest in Wake as a free agent, while the Dolphins have not made a serious effort to re-sign him.
Wake has suited up in 146 games for Miami in the last decade, punishing QB’s and piling up 98 sacks.
General Manager Chris Grier last week didn’t give a clear answer as to the future of Wake with the Dolphins, and it sounds more and more like it’s going to be tough for the team to re-sign him.
The 37-year-old is second in sacks in team history and was a member of the team’s 50th Season All-Time Team. He had six sacks in 14 games last season.
The Dolphins are shedding payroll with a number of roster moves, and are also trying to trade defensive end Robert Quinn, which would save $12.9 million in cap space.
