    I think his agent means in leaping from the CFL to NFL.

    Well, Cameron Wake is only Cameron Wake because his real name is a bit of a joke name in Canada.

    Cameron Wake's real name is Derek Wake.

    Maybe Rick should change his name to something else to make the transformation complete. I suggest Bob or Doug.

    Sign him up; what do we have to lose? This (lack of) pass-rush needs all the help it can get.

    No, I was speculating if he was going to be the next Cameron Wake. I didn't even read the story, so I don't know what people are saying about him.

    Not really, because all I know is that there was a negative connotation to the name "Derek" in Canada, so he changed his first name to Cameron.

    Wake is a Penn State guy.

    I hope he's the next Cameron Wake on passing downs. The guy is a helluva pass rusher. On running downs, I hope he's much better than Wake.

    As a CFL fan, Foley is definitely not as good as Wake, and stood in his shadows the past two seasons previous to this one and finally got his opportunity in 2009.

    I don't think he's the type of guy we will be looking for.

    LMAO! A negative connotation to the name Derek in Canada! What a freaking joke. As I'm sure any of the Canadians here will tell you, there is nothing negative about the name Derek up here in the Great White North.

    As a Vancouverite, I can tell you that there is nothing to see here, move on. He was a back up to Wake when Wake was still here.

    Next free agent, please.

    I read an article about it.

    I can't remember the exact detail but apparently there was some Canadian TV dhow with an annoying kid named Derek in it, and everyone was annoyed.

    I read it from the horse's mouth. Wake himself said that people were knocking him because they were associating his name with some annoying guy named Derek on Canadian TV. I have no idea what Wake was talking about. I don't watch Canadian TV and I don't know the show. But Wake said that he was frequently a target of ridicule and so he changed it.

    The article was all over the Penn State boards about 4 years ago when it happened. So, don't ask me. Ask Cameron. I can't even remember what the show was.

    Well, the name-change story was fun while it lasted. Anyone want the truth?

    LMAO! No way man, he changed his name cause some guy on TV he didn't like had the same name!

    Like all normal people do right? I hate that Ryan Seacrest guy, I think I'll head downtown and put in the forms to change my name!

    Haha, you're a funny guy. Laugh all you want.

    Wake said it. It wasn't a rumor. These were his words.

    I wasn't the only one who remembered Wake's story. I asked the Penn State guys and they remembered that his teammates were comparing him to something called "Life with Derek." This is what Wake said. Maybe he was joking but the writer didn't seem to catch wind of it.

    I thought we were talking about Rick Foley. Maybe we can discuss how he's called Ricky.

    Man, I can't wait for the combine. :( ;)

    I almost wonder if the Patriots cancelled the visit once his agent sent out a tweet saying he would be visiting. The Pats usually like to keep this stuff under wraps and given that this is a borderline NFL player I suspect they figure they don't need to deal with an agent whose sending tweets about his clients visits.
