The Good: Cameron Wake

Ireland played a part in Miami landing former CFL standout Cameron Wake, getting him to the Dolphins when a half dozen NFL teams were trying to lure the three-time Pro Bowler. Bill Parcells was the executive who convinced Wake to pick Miami over other suitors, but Ireland scouted him. Ireland also got Wake signed to a five-year, $33.2 million extension that will likely keep him in a Dolphins uniform until 2017. Jim Rassol / Sun Sentinel
