Date:

Dolphins DC Vance Joseph confirmed that Jason Jones will start over Cameron Wake at defensive end.

Jones will start in base sets opposite Mario Williams. Joseph said Wake is capable of starting but wants to limit his snaps by mostly using him in pass-rushing packages. It's probably the right move with Wake coming off a torn Achilles.
Sep 6 - 12:32 PM

Dolphins DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') said he’s still not 100 percent.

Wake didn't look in regular season form during his preseason debut Thursday. He's still expected to be fully ready for Week 1. Wake is a candidate to open the year on a snap count.
Aug 26 - 6:11 PM

Dolphins DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') will have a reduced role this year.

Wake looked healthy at OTAs, but is only eight months removed from a torn Achilles. The Dolphins have said all offseason they want to get him fewer snaps. Andre Branch should have a heavy rotational role behind Wake and Mario Williams.

Dolphins DC Vance Joseph said DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') has "looked great" at OTAs.

Wake is participating in team drills just seven months removed from a torn Achilles' tendon. "He looks explosive," Joseph said. "Obviously, it’s still early on. He has not gone full, full speed, but he looked great." Unless he suffers a setback, Wake should be a full-go for the start of training camp.

Dolphins DE Cameron Wake (Achilles) is participating in team drills at OTAs.

Wake is seven months removed from a torn Achilles, but has progressed ahead of schedule. Barring a setback, he should be cleared for the start of training camp.
Jun 1 - 4:30 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase is confident DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') will be ready for training camp.

"It's probably us holding him back," Gase continued. Every report on Wake's rehab has been positive throughout the entire offseason. If he is not 100 percent when training camp opens, he will not be far from it.
May 26 - 1:22 PM

Dolphins EVP Mike Tannenbaum said DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') has "exceeded expectations" in his recovery.

Wake's recovery is going well enough the Dolphins felt comfortable giving him a two-year, $15 million extension this month. Wake will transition into more of a situational role at age 34, but his healthy return will still be a big boost.
May 21 - 10:38 AM

Dolphins signed DE Cameron Wake to a two-year, $15 million extension.

Wake was set to make $8.4 million in the final year of his contract. His new deal comes with $10 million guaranteed, but reduces Wake's 2016 cap charge. Extending Wake suggests Miami is confident he'll make a full recovery from his torn Achilles' tendon. 34-year-old Wake is now signed through 2017.
May 7 - 7:54 PM

Dolphins DC Vance Joseph said he thinks DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') will be ready Week 1.

With a return for the start of training camp in the realm of possibilities, it would be an upset if Wake is not ready for Week 1. The real question is how effective he'll be coming off an Achilles' rupture at age 34. Once a full-time starter, Wake will transition into a situational role this season.
May 7 - 1:26 PM

Dolphins DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') was on the field for the start of the voluntary minicamp Tuesday.

It is unlikely he did much more than stretching just six months removed from an Achilles' rupture, but his presence on the field is a great sign. It is possible the 34-year-old will be ready for training camp. The Dolphins say that's their goal. Wake is expected to shift from full-time starter to situational rusher this season.
Apr 26 - 12:19 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins are still interested in restructuring DE Cameron Wake's deal.

The 34-year-old is set to make $8.4 million and count $9.8 million against the cap in the final year of his deal. Coming off an Achilles' injury, the Dolphins reportedly do not view Wake as a full-time player anymore, and that is a lot of cap space to devote to a situational rusher. An extension which lowers Wake's 2016 salary while giving him some guarantees down the road still makes the most sense for both sides.
Apr 5 - 9:06 AM

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins don't consider DE Cameron Wake a full-time player anymore.

The Dolphins are moving forward with Andre Branch as the starter at left end, at least until Wake returns to full strength after missing most of last year with a torn Achilles. Wake usually logs 40-50 snaps a game but Salguero sees him playing about half of that now. The Dolphins aren't thrilled to be paying Wake starter's money, but they have no plans to move him and probably wouldn't have much luck if they tried.
Mar 18 - 2:40 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins are planning to keep DE Cameron Wake despite Tuesday's signing of Mario Williams.

We'll see. At best, Wake's odds of remaining in South Beach are probably no better than 50-50. Perhaps the Dolphins are waiting to decide his fate until they know the status of transition player Olivier Vernon, but a 34-year-old Wake won't be making $8.275 million as he returns from a torn Achilles' tendon. His release still seems likely.
Mar 8 - 6:03 PM

The Dolphins have not threatened to cut LE Cameron Wake despite his $9.8 million cap hit for 2016.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Wake is still in the team's plans and the organization hopes he'll retire as a Dolphin. While extension talks have reportedly "not gone well," it doesn't sound like Wake's roster spot is in jeopardy. Wake lost more than half his 2015 season to a torn Achilles.
