With coaches choices, plus injuries, plus Super Bowl XLVII commitments we saw several Pro Bowl spots open up and the Miami Dolphins ended up with four players in the NFL all-star game. This article is a look at the future with the Dolphins for these four players (article on their Pro Bowl seasons is RIGHT HERE).
Cameron Wake was the only Dolphin who was an original Pro Bowl player/starter, and this was his second game in Honolulu for their sack master (he had a sack in the 2013 Pro Bowl and he was the best ‘Phin in that game). Wake is a favorite of Dolfans and he is awesome so it is great to know that he is under contract for several more seasons. In May of 2012 Wake inked a long term extension which will have him in aqua and orange through 2016.
Randy Starks is a free-agent and the article on his free-agency is RIGHT HERE. 2013 will be Starks’ 10th season in the NFL (first four seasons with the Tennessee Titans and last five with the Dolphins).
Richie Incognito was honored with his first ever Pro Bowl birth, and the left guard is under contract through 2013 ($4 million in 2013). He could provide an interesting dilemma in 2014 as he will be on the other side of 30 at that point so it will be interesting to see how he is playing at that time. ‘Phins phans should be thrilled that he will be back in 2013 as he is the sort of player you want on your team.
Long snapper John Denney made the Pro Bowl this season as a coaches choice, and he is under contract through 2013 ($860,000).
In the last 10 seasons the most players that Miami has sent to the Pro Bowl was four, and 2013 was the third time in that span that they sent four. None of them are guaranteed to be Dolphins past next season except Wake.
