After a one week holdout, linebacker Cameron Wake has returned to the Miami Dolphins offseason traing program. According to a Miami Herald report, Wake and the Dolphins spoke this past week about a new contract. whatever was said was enough to bring Wake, the Dolphins pass rush specialist, back to the team.

Wake is currently scheduled to only make $650,000 this season, despite Pro Football Focus rating him as the top 3-4 outside linebacker in the league. Other pass rushers with Wake's level of production are usually making around $10 million a year. Mario Williams signed a 6-year, $100 million contract this offseason with the Buffalo Bills.

While no deal is set to be signed, the fact that Wake is back in the offseason training program, a "voluntary" program, shows something has changed in terms of the contract talks. Wake would not be risking injury if he didn't feel like the team was going to take care of him. Whatever concession general manager Jeff Ireland and the Dolphins gave to Wake to get him back to the team facilities, it was worth it. Wake is the leader of the defense, one of the (few) faces of the franchise, and a veteran presence needed as the team adjusts to a new coaching staff.

Glad to see some sign of progress in paying a great player.
