A ke ahead of free agency."The Super Bowl is just four days away Nat Moore Jersey , and right now the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams are preparing for the biggest game on the NFL calendar. Meanwhile, your Miami Dolphins continue to prepare for the 2019 league year, with free agency being the most important event on the horizon outside of the NFL draft. The first step in free agency preparation is determining what each club is going to do with their own soon-to-be free agents.In our annual “Retain, Tag, or Walk” series of articles, we here at The Phinsider are giving you a closer look at the Miami Dolphins players with expiring contracts and providing a chance to vote on what you would do with that player. Today, we take a look at the legendary Cameron Wake.Fact CheckPosition: DEAge: 37Experience: Entering 11th seasonHeight/Weight: 6’3”, 263lbsCollege: Penn St.Expiring Contract: 2-year, $16,125,0002018 ReviewLast season, Wake recorded his lowest sack total since his rookie season, but his 6.0 sacks placed second behind only Robert Quinn’s 6.5. No other player on the roster recorded more than three quarterback takedowns. With that in mind Mark Duper Jersey , it’s easy to see that Matt Burke’s defensive scheme, as well as the fact that Miami’s defense was forced to stay on the field for so long with the offense failing to sustain drives, were both certainly part of the reason for the ageless Wake’s low sack total.In fact, anyone who watched Miami Dolphins games last season could see that Wake has barely lost a step despite his advanced age. He was routinely pressuring opposing quarterbacks and flushing them out of the pocket. Wake was also Miami’s best run-stopping defensive end once William Hayes was lost for the season with a torn ACL.2019 OutlookWake just turned 37, but there’s no doubt he can still be a force on defense. With the Dolphins needing help at defensive end, there will absolutely be mutual interest between Miami’s front office and Wake’s representatives. The sticking point will be money. With that said, it’s hard to see Wake in another uniform next season, even if it’s not impossible.VerdictThe Dolphins are in rebuild mode. That means the team will bring in as much young and cheap talent as possible. Wake fits neither of those descriptors, but his is a special case. Wake is one of the most well-respected and widely loved players in franchise history. When one person has dedicated their entire career to a single franchise, especially one that’s often been uncompetitive, he deserves a level of respect from the front office. Given Miami’s need for help at pass rusher, I expect the front office to offer Wake a contract that both pays him what he deserves, yet is representative of both his age and production.My vote: Retain NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets stayed in the AFC East to find their new head coach.Former Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase agreed Wednesday night to take the Jets job Mark Clayton Jersey , a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.The hiring ends a 10-day, wide-open search for New York, which met with seven other coaches about their vacancy, including Mike McCarthy, Kris Richard, Jim Caldwell, Eric Bieniemy, Todd Monken, Matt Rhule and Kliff Kingsbury, who took the Arizona Cardinals job. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team had not yet announced the hiring. Gase was 23-26 in three years with Miami, including a playoff game in the 2016 season, before being fired last week. It turns out he'll remain in the division, and face the Dolphins twice every regular season as a rival head coach.Gase replaces Todd Bowles Adam Joseph Duhe Jersey , who was fired after he went 24-40 in four seasons and no playoff appearances. He's the Jets' first hire with previous full-time NFL head coaching experience since Bill Parcells' three-year tenure from 1997-99.The 40-year-old Gase is also the first offensive-focused coach since Rich Kotite in 1996.Regarded as one of the league's top young offensive minds, he'll be tasked with furthering the development of quarterback Sam Darnold and helping New York snap an eight-year postseason drought.While he had control over personnel in Miami, Gase will work closely in New York with general manager Mike Maccagnan, who was retained by team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson, to put together a competitive roster around Darnold. The Jets are expected to have around $100 million in salary cap space this offseason, and will be very active in free agency.Those factors combined, Johnson insisted leading into the team's search, made the Jets an attractive spot for a head coach to land."If you can make it here, you're a freakin' legend," Johnson said. "That counts for something."Gase will get his shot to do just that.He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at LSU in 2000 under Nick Saban before becoming a recruiting assistant for the Tigers for two years. Gase's first NFL job came in 2003 under Steve Mariucci in Detroit, where he worked his way up to quarterbacks coach in five years with the Lions. He also worked for Rod Marinelli and Mike Martz in Detroit.Gase followed Martz to San Francisco in 2008 before heading to Denver the following season. He worked as the Broncos' wide receivers coach for two years before becoming the quarterbacks coach — where he worked closely with Manning — and was promoted to offensive coordinator by coach John Fox in 2013 and Denver's offense set several league records during Gase's two seasons calling the plays.Fox brought Gase along with him to Chicago in 2015 as his offensive coordinator. Seen as a rising star in the league, he was hired by the Dolphins as their head coach the following season.Gase had a promising debut in Miami, going 10-6 in his first season and leading the Dolphins to their first playoff appearance since 2008. But the team struggled the following year Larry Csonka Jersey , going 6-10 with quarterback Ryan Tannehill sidelined all season following knee surgery.Gase was fired after this season as part of an organizational shake-up after the Dolphins finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the 15th time in 17 years. There were also questions about whether Gase had lost the support of some players.Miami ranked 31st in the NFL in offense, a franchise worst, and 29th in defense, allowing a franchise-record 6,257 yards this season.Gase's Dolphins were particularly good in one-score games, going 7-1 in those situations this season and 20-6 in three years. Their record in games decided by more than one score was 3-20, including 0-8 this season. Miami also lost its last seven games on the road.He'll try to change his fortunes — as well as those of the Jets — with a new opportunity. ESPN reported that Darnold spoke with Gase on FaceTime on Monday night, and the two clicked. It also reported that Manning called Johnson Tuesday night to provide a sparkling reference for Gase.The hiring was met with some trepidation from frustrated Jets fans, many of whom were pulling for McCarthy, Monken or Rhule to be hired to turn the franchise around and end a Super Bowl drought that's 50 years and counting.The franchise's hope is that the combination of Gase and Darnold will be able to get there someday soon.
