Tennessee Titans: Midseason grades for biggest offseason acquisitions
OLB Cameron Wake
At 38 years old, Wake is somehow still chugging along as a contributor in the pass-rush.
Wake joined the Titans after ten seasons with the Miami Dolphins. After his two-and-a-half sack performance against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1, Wake has been extremely quiet on the stat sheet, but even with his limited reps, he still has been disruptive, totaling eight quarterback hits through the first seven games.
He did miss a couple of games due to a hamstring injury, but when he is on the field and healthy, he has definitely made the team around him better with his ability to rush the passer.
Wake splits time with a lot of the team’s younger pass-rushers, like Harold Landry, Kamalei Correa, and Reggie Gilbert, but played a season-high 32 snaps this past week against the Buccaneers, though he did not register any defensive statistics as of the writing of this article.
Realistically, Wake won’t be a huge contributor throughout the rest of the season, but what he may lack in physical ability at least compared to what he was before, he makes up with in knowledge and wisdom that he can pass on to the younger pass-rushers on the roster.
