The 2010’s are well and truly behind us, with many wishing they were still in that decade with the current coronavirus pandemic.
However, the new decade has brought new hope for Miami with head coach looking to build on an impressive rookie year as head coach.
With the drafting of Tua Tagovailoa, many Dolphins fans are excited for what the future holds.
Many fans would not want to go back to the 2010’s as this was not a good decade for the Dolphins but one man that stood out this decade was linebacker Cameron Wake.
Cameron Wake gave 100% on every play
Wake is now a free agent after just one injury filled season in Tennesee but had a succesful time in Miami. Here is why Wake has a strong case to be the best player of the 2010’s to wear the aqua green of Miami.
Wake not only showed excellent edge rush ability but also showed great leadership during his ten seasons with the Miami Dolphins.
He has been to five Pro Bowls, the most out of any Miami Dolphins player in the 2010’s.
Ryan Tannehill was drafted eighth overall in 2012 and he waa expected to be the next franchise quarterback for Miami. However, he has already shown more promise in half a season for Tennesee than he did for the seven years he showed in South Beach.
Jarvis Landry was an excellent servant with two 1000 yard seasons in his four years with the Dolphins but was shipped out by head coach Adam Gase to Cleveland in 2018.
Adam Gase has proved to be one of the most disliked head coaches in Miami history and Joe Philbin flattered to deceive.
Cameron Wake was with Miami for the majority of his career, which could potentially end this offseason. He has been a figure of importance for everything that Miami was doing. He led by example both on and off the field.
In conclusion, Cameron Wake is simply the best of the 2010s and arguably is in the top five best Dolphins players of the 21st century alongside Zach Thomas, Jason Taylor, and Ricky Williams.
Miami will find it hard to find another Cameron Wake.
