The good and bad of Wake's extension

By James Walker

I had two initial reactions when I saw ESPN's Adam Schefter report the Miami Dolphins reached a four-year, $49 million extension with outside linebacker and defensive end Cameron Wake.

My first reaction was, "Good for Wake. He deserved an extension."

My second thought was, "Did the Dolphins pay too much?"

Both thoughts are at play with the Dolphins and Wake. Here is our take on the good and the bad of the extension:

The Good
The Bad

As I mentioned, there are two sides to Wake's extension. Would you give this move by Miami a thumbs up or thumbs down?
