    As many know, Wake's contract is ending soon and he is scheduled to hit the open market after this season. What would you do in this situation? Do you extend him hoping for another year of ELITE production, if so, what would be a fair offer?

    Currently his cap hit is $9.6 million ranked #15 (Andre Branch is #13) as a DE. Wake has the 5th highest cap hit on the team.

    Unless he falls off the cliff (doubt it), do what you gotta do and make sure he retires a fin. He's earned it.

    Unless something changes he is still our best pass rusher, even if he dips I can still see him being a 5-8 sack guy which is still valuable. It would be a shame to see him in another teams jersey like Jason Taylor. Lets not repeat history and resign.

    I would resign him for another 2 years, the guy is still productive.

    Not to mention production. The guy still delivers. I keep waiting on the youngsters to step up and him to fade into the 3rd down assassin role but it just hasn't happened.

    It will depend on his production this year and next year's draft.

    me too but that was before the '17 season

    his leadership is worth so much but the poorly conceived deals we have with our DE's as a collective
    seem to have made this a question mark. if only we could dump Branch and give Wake mo money

    If they dump Branch, they'll still need cap space to bring in another free agent end.

    Wake is my favorite player, but they need to see how Harris plays this year (in my opinion). It’s all business. The team should do whatever is best for the team.

    Unless he breaks down this year (doubtful) you extend him expecting him to play a supporting role as a 37 year old passrusher, not as an elite 28 year old passrusher.

    Yea the Dolphins and Wake have a fluent relationship. This could get done today or in March . . . Or It could be on Wake at this point. He has earned the right to see this through . . . And you know what if this team underachieves and he wants to take a shot at a title in 2019 somewhere else, He deserves that and would have my fullest support.

    He’ll still be an all time great Dolphin.
