    Always a class act and I hope he can end his career in Miami a winner.

    Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake was playing some of the best football of his career before tearing his Achilles’ tendon in a Week 8 loss to New England.
    Now, he’s vowing to return “better than ever” — and wants to do it in Miami.
    “I would love to be back,” he said.
    Wake, who will be 34 next season, had seven sacks in his final three games before the injury.
    If the Dolphins keep him at his current salary, they’d have a $9.8 million cap hit next season. If they release him, they’d save $8.4 million.
    Wake wouldn’t rule out coming back at a reduced rate.
    “Whatever is the best thing obviously I’ll take it in to consideration,” he said. “There’s a lot of things that are question marks on the team next year. So the scenarios are probably endless. It’s hard to speculate. I’ve always loved being here and that’s not going to change.”
    Wake said he will be “100 percent” next year.
    When asked how he knows that, he responded: “Because I’m me.”
    “Healthy and better than ever,” he said of next season.
    Of course, Wake doesn’t know if the Dolphins are planning to bring him back. And he won’t know until after a new coach is hired.
    “That’s a question above my pay grade,” he said. “I just do what I can to make sure that decision is in my favor and I’ll let the chips fall where they may.”

    From head to heart Wake is what you would like every player to be. My heart says that I would love to see him playing for our team this year but, my head says that it would not be in the best interest in this team, at this time, in looking to our future.

      You can't let Wake go. You just can't. He is the undisputed leader of this team. Letting him go does a ton more bad then good.

    34 year old DE on a 6-10 team. This is how you keep losing. Team leader? If he is your team leader WTF happened with the defense and team. OMF are you guys nuts?

    The guy can ONLY rush the passer, ask him to stop the run and I would do better.....

      I think if he's willing to take a pay cut to come back and be a pass rushing specialist, I'm all for that. I love Wake but it's a tough injury to bounce back from at his age (especially when your game is predicated on speed). That said - I'd love to have him in the rotation next year. Would love to see us snag Shaq Lawson with our 2nd round pick.....

        My thought exactly as Wake is still a force to be reckoned with when rushing the passer. In a rotation he will be fresher as well.

          If Wake can get healthy again I'd take him hands down over OV who draws at least one personal foul every damn game and it's always in 3rd and long.

          IF you believe that the team can do something this year, you keep Wake. If not, it is time to move on.

            In that case it's time to move on. This team is not a one year fix. JMHO.
