Miami Dolphins pass-rusher Cameron Wake is looking for a new contract, and skipped the start of the team's voluntary offseason workout program Tuesday, according to an ESPN report.
Wake has one year and 650,000 left on his contract, but ESPN reported that Wake won't participate without a new deal.
Wake, who made the Pro Bowl in 2010 with 14 sacks, signed a four-year, 4.9 million deal in 2009 out of the Canadian Football League, including 1 million guaranteed.
The 30-year-old has 122 tackles and 28 sacks in three NFL seasons.

Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Bob Griese said there weren't bounties on quarterbacks in his day.
That's because back in the 1970s, knockout attempts were so routine they didn't merit special payment.
The NFL recently punished the New Orleans Saints heavily for running a bounty program that paid players to injure opponents. Before being honored with a Thomas A. Brady...
Phillip Merling and Lydon Murtha may have been restricted free agents this offseason, but it became practically a done deal that they would be back after the Dolphins extended qualifying offers to both players. On Tuesday, it officially became a done deal when both players signed their tender.
