Titans add veteran pass rusher Cameron Wake

Titans add veteran pass rusher Cameron Wake

Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson addressed another need area, bringing in edge rusher Cameron Wake as a free agent from the Miami Dolphins, a league source confirmed.

Wake, 37, has spent his entire 10-year NFL career with the Dolphins, but before that was a standout pass rusher in the Canadian Football League.

Wake had six sacks in 14 games for the Dolphins in 2018, playing mainly as a situational player.

Wake’s deal is for three years and $23 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who first reported the signing.

While Wake had just six sacks last season, he is only two years removed from a double-digit sack season with 10.5 in 2017, the fifth time in his 10 NFL seasons that he has posted double figures in sacks.

Not only are the Titans counting on the veteran to help their pass rush, they also hope he can be a good mentor to young outside linebackers Harold Landry and Shariff Finch, both of whom are entering their second seasons in the league.

Wake has posted 98 sacks in 146 NFL games.
