Cameron Wake didn’t just earn a Pro Bowl nod and Comeback Player of the Year consideration with his dominant 2016.

He earned another year with the Dolphins, and some more guaranteed money.

Wake signed a contract extension through 2018 season Saturday. The terms: two years, $19 million, including $11 million guaranteed, ESPN reported.

Wake was due $6.9 million in 2017 base salary before signing the new deal.

Wake, who turned 35 in January, made a remarkable recovery from a torn Achilles tendon.

He record 11.5 sacks, forced five fumbles and had an interception in 2016. Wake became just one of three NFL players in the past decade to have a double-digit sack season at age 34 or older.
