1. Pass-rushing linebacker Cam Wake isn’t standing out, but it might not matter.
Wake’s signing was one of the big stories of the Dolphins’ off-season. But it’s looking like piling up 39 sacks in two seasons in the CFL doesn’t mean much in the NFL.
Wake has looked like just another guy looking to make an NFL team. The difference is Wake will be given time to develop that some players might not receive.
Third-year pro Quentin Moses had a sack and an interception one outside linebacker fighting for a roster spot, but surely trails Wake in the fight to make the 53 man. And Moses, 25, was twice the player at Georgia Wake, 26, was at Penn State.
Tony Sparano said he considers Wake to be a rookie, even though he’s been out of college since 2005, and that he began to catch his eye a bit Monday during the first day in pads.
