Dolphins sign top CFL linebacker Wake
NFL teams were frothing over the workouts of Canadian Football League pass-rush specialist Cameron Wake, and the Miami Dolphins had to fork over a nice sum to land him.The Dolphins signed Wake to what's believed to be the richest CFL-to-NFL contract: four years worth as much as $4.9 million and nearly $1 million in guaranteed money. Wake, who is 260 pounds and amassed 39 sacks over the past two seasons for the B.C. Lions, will play outside linebacker in the Dolphins' 3-4 scheme and could be a dangerous force opposite Joey Porter. Wake, a two-time CFL defensive player of the year the past two seasons, received interest from 17 teams and received offers from eight, his agent, Paul Sheehy, said.
Tony Sparano feels that the 2008 Dolphins have successfully changed the football culture in Miami.
