The Splash Zone 5/8/16: Dolphins Sign Cameron Wake To A Two-Year Contract Extension

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

Cameron Wake may just finish his career with the Miami Dolphins, the team that gave him his NFL shot. Wake has agreed to a two-year contract extension worth $15 million with $10 million guaranteed. Wake was set to make $8.4 million in his last year, but with this extension it will reduce the cap hit. Miami is confident that Wake can recover from a torn Achilles injury he suffered at the end of October. Wake is is 34, so he probably only has a couple more years in him. Imagine if he would have played in the NFL sooner.
