The Dolphins won’t be returning to the playoffs this season and defensive end Cameron Wake thinks that should be a source of pain for him and his teammates.

Wake acknowledged that there were on- and off-field obstacles to success for the Dolphins this season, including Ryan Tannehill‘s injury and the change in schedule due to Hurricane Irma, but that he’s “not a guy to make excuses.” Instead, he points to a lack of consistency on both sides of the ball as the reason why the team’s talent didn’t bring better results.
