The Splash Zone 9/7/16: Cameron Wake Will Be A Situational Player

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 will not open the 2016 season as a defensive starter. Jason Jones will start over Wake at defensive end and smart move in my honest opinion. Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph stated that Wake is capable of starting, but would prefer to use him in pass rushing packages for the time being. Wake is coming off a torn Achilles injury and appears to be the right move for the time being. I think down the stretch Wake may earn his starting spot back, he's always proven to be a valuable football player.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.

Arian Foster will begin the season as the Dolphins’ No. 1 running back. He doesn’t see it as a cause for celebration. He has something far bigger in mind.

Foster Has New Number, New Goals
The Pro Bowl running back is with a new team after playing seven seasons with the Houston Texans, a second new number this summer after switching from 34 to 29 on Monday, and new goals for the regular season.

Dolphins Defensive Line

Mario Williams says it’s "sweeter" as Miami Dolphins ask him to focus on sacks | The Daily Dolphin
DAVIE — When I asked Mario Williams how important sack totals are to him at this point in his career, I thought he might downplay it. I thought Williams might talk about team defense or the importance of being a complete player. Or dropping into pass coverage. OK, not that part.

Cam Wake lifted weights. He ran gassers. He did all the rehab he needed to get back on the field for Week 1. But he did even more. He pushed his Range Rover throughout the streets of South Florida.
