Cameron Wake takes my advice

The Dolphins' official roster has been updated again, and new outside linebacker Cameron Wake has already changed his number.

Initially issued No. 59, Wake has switched to No. 91 - the number he wore for the BC Lions in the CFL. No. 91 had previously been worn by defensive lineman Vonnie Holliday since he joined the team in 2005, but the team released Holliday last week, opening up the number for Wake.

As you may recall when I reported on new player numbers in late February, I expressed my disappointment that Wake had received a 50s number rather than a 90s one. I felt a 90s number would be much more bad-ass for Wake. I think it's pretty obvious that statement of mine influenced his decision. :-D
