What signing DE Cameron Wake means for the Titans — NFL free agency

Share

ESPN reports that Wake will receive a three-year, $23 million deal from the Titans including $10 million in guaranteed money.

Wake, who turned 37 in January, was still one of the Dolphins' most complete defensive players in 2018. In his 10 seasons in the National Football League, he has 360 tackles, 98 sacks, and 22 forced fumbles.

Instead of re-signing Wake for an 11th season in Miami, the Dolphins are moving forward in their plans to rebuild their roster with younger, cheaper talent in hopes of developing into a competitor for years to come. He recorded 36 tackles, 17 quarterback hits, six sacks, five tackles for loss and a pass deflection, while earning $8,125,000 last season. He'll like be the right outside linebacker for the Titans to replace Brian Orakpo, who retired from the NFL.

Wake has been with the Dolphins since 2009 and has acquired 98 sacks in that time for the Dolphins.

He became a breakout star in his second season in Miami, starting all 16 games and racking up 14 sacks. If Wake does improve the pass rush, the interception totals for the Titans should only go up.
