|Assets:||Incredibly explosive coming off the edge. Has some nice one-on-one moves and is tenacious getting to the quarterback. Does a solid job of shifting gears and picking up the run.|
|Flaws:||Can sometimes overplay the pass-rush and get caught out of position in pass coverage and against the run. Needs to settle down. Took awhile to develop as a player.|
|Career Potential:||Dominant edge rusher.|

Dolphins could deal Wallace and Wake, too | 02/28/2014 3:26 PM
NewsCiting "numerous" league sources and NFL executives, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Dolphins "might also be open to dealing" Cameron Wake and Mike Wallace.
ImpactIf La Canfora's sources are to be trusted, the Dolphins are open to a full-on firesale under rookie GM Dennis Hickey, as 2013 No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan is also said to be available. Miami would absorb an over-$5 million cap penalty to deal Jordan, but would clear room by trading Wallace and/or Wake. (No one is going to trade for Wallace's mammoth contract, of course.) La Canfora's story, accessible at the link below, indicates Hickey intends to invest heavily in the talented 2014 draft, and is willing to part with big-name players in order to load up on picks. Ex-GM Jeff Ireland's 2013 offseason "master plan" blew up tremendously during the regular season, and looks worse and worse by the day.

NewsCameron Wake's (knee) snaps are expected to double in Week 8.
Cameron Wake listed as probable | 10/18/2013 7:32 PM
NewsDolphins LE Cameron Wake returned to a full practice Friday and is listed as probable for Week 7.
ImpactHe's all systems go coming off a Week 6 bye. Wake is Miami's best pass rusher and one of the top-five defensive ends in football. His return bodes poorly for Buffalo's Thad Lewis-quarterbacked offense in Week 7.
Cameron Wake (knee) officially active | 10/06/2013 11:43 AM
NewsDolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Ravens.

NewsDolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 5.
ImpactWake seems more likely than not to play against the Ravens after sitting out last Monday's loss to New Orleans. He practiced on a "limited" basis Friday. Officially, the Dolphins are calling Wake a game-time decision.
Cameron Wake (knee) inactive for MNF vs. NO | 09/30/2013 7:25 PM

Cameron Wake (knee) questionable for MNF | 09/28/2013 3:27 PM
NewsDolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) practiced on a limited basis Saturday and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Saints.
ImpactWake suffered a sprained MCL last week, but has yet to be ruled out for Monday Night Football and is expected to be a game-time decision. If Wake can't go, rookie Dion Jordan will make his first career start.
Cameron Wake could play in Week 4 | 09/26/2013 5:35 PM
NewsDolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice, and has yet to be ruled out for Monday Night Football.

ImpactAn erroneous initial report pegged Wake as week to week, but he's more day to day. Wake is hoping to play on passing downs against the Saints. With as much defensive line depth as any team in the league, the Dolphins could opt to hold Wake out for one week in an effort to get him closer to full health for Week 5.
Cam Wake (knee) not yet ruled out for Week 4 | 09/24/2013 7:53 PM
NewsDolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) was limited to "field work" in Tuesday's practice, but "still hopes to play (Week 4) in pass situations."

Report: Cameron Wake (knee) out 2-3 weeks | 09/23/2013 4:28 PM
NewsThe South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports Dolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) will likely miss 2-3 weeks.
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
ImpactWe usually don't post "reports" from the Sun-Sentinel because its football coverage is the least reliable in the nation, but several other media outlets have ran with this story. We'd just take it with a grain of salt. At one point in the "report", it's written Wake could miss "at least a week or two," and later it states Wake will "likely" be sidelined "two to three weeks." CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported earlier Wake has a "mild" MCL sprain, and is seen more as day to day. If Wake misses any time, it will be a significant blow to Miami's edge rush. The Fins travel to the Superdome in Week 4.
Report: Cameron Wake has 'mild' MCL sprain | 09/23/2013 3:08 PM
NewsCBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Dolphins LE Cameron Wake has been diagnosed with a "mild" MCL sprain.
Jason La Canfora on Twitter
ImpactEven a "mild" MCL sprain could cost Wake multiple games, but it's still good news. Wake missed the final three quarters of Sunday's win over the Falcons, and should be considered doubtful for next Monday's showdown with the Saints for the time being. Wake has 2.5 sacks through his first three games.
Cameron Wake to play everywhere for Miami | 07/16/2013 11:09 AM
NewsDefensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said he wouldn't trade DE Cameron Wake "for anybody in our league."
ImpactWake went undrafted out of Penn State in 2009 and remains in the shadows of the game's best pass-rushers. It's unfair. Over the last three years, Wake has 37.5 sacks, 152 tackles and six forced fumbles. He's our No. 2 defensive lineman in the IDP ranks, ahead of Jason Pierre-Paul and behind only J.J. Watt.
