The Miami Dolphins and linebacker Cameron Wake have agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $49 million, including $20 million guaranteed, a source with knowledge of the situation said Sunday.
"It's kind of like taking things to another level, kind of like when I came down here from the (Canadian Football League)," Wake told The Associated Press. "It has been an amazing, amazing journey."
The Dolphinslater confirmed the deal via their official Twitter feed and said the extension runs the 2016 season, but they didn't reveal financial terms.
"So far, so good," Wake said about the direction of the team under new head coach Joe Philbin. "Just trying to make it a first-class organization from top to bottom, and making sure we have everything we need to be successful. We are taking big strides to make sure that 2012 will be a good season for everybody."
Wake, who had been off Twitter for the past month, sent his followers a message Sunday morning, hinting at something of interest before the deal was announced.
