Miami Dolphins Reward Cameron Wake with $49 Million Extension

| by

The Miami Dolphins have signed Cameron Wake to a four-year, $49 million extension Sunday -- with $20 million guaranteed -- according to NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Wake's original contract had one year left with $550,000 left on it. He skipped the team's voluntary workouts this past month because he wanted a new contract.

Wake is one of the best pass-rushers in the league, making the Pro Bowl in 2010 after having 14 sacks. He had 8.5 last year.

Wake originally played in the Canadian Football League, but was signed by the Dolphins in 2009 to a four-year, $4.9 million deal with $1 million guaranteed. He started out in Penn State, but went undrafted and failed in his stint with the Giants.

He later took his talents to the CFL, winning two Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Wake so far has 28 sacks for his three-year career.
