Dolphins Snag TE Jordan Cameron on 2-Year Pact
Jordan Cameron was back with the Cleveland Browns on a two-year deal. And then he wasn’t. Whether it was just bad reporting or Cameron was going to return to the Browns and got cold feet, he ultimately opted against sticking in Cleveland and instead will spend the next two years in South Beach.
Despite the Miami Dolphins already having extended a franchise tag to tight end Charles Clay, the team reportedly reached a two-year, $15 million deal with Cameron on Thursday evening. Cameron broke out in 2014 to the tune of 80 receptions, 917 receiving yards and seven touchdowns before having his 2014 season marred by injuries and inconsistent quarterback play.
Cameron comes into Miami as a huge injury risk, as he’s had several issues with concussions and other ailments in his brief career. Just 26 years old, Cameron has already flashed elite ability and if used correctly, can be a major asset for Miami, however.
The idea appears to be getting quarterback Ryan Tannehill more help through the air, which could have the Dolphins completely ready to roster both Cameron and Clay. Per reports, the team is not expected to pull back off of their tag for Clay, and could still seek a long-term contract.
Cameron should come in immediately and offer elite red-zone ability, while he also has the skill-set to make plays on the ball and stretch the defense down the middle of the field. Hypothetically, he ad Clay actually mesh perfectly, as Clay doesn’t necessarily possess Cameron’s best attributes on a high level, and where Cameron tends to struggle – in blocking and the intermediate game – Clay thrives.
The two could end up teaming up and improving Miami’s offense overall, but even if Clay jets for another city, the Dolphins have tight end more than covered. With the Cameron signing and Mike Wallace and Jarvis Landry already in place at wide receiver, Miami’s offense should be as explosive as ever since Joe Philbin and Ryan Tannehill teamed up three years ago. Should that be the case, the Fins could finally compete for a playoff spot and could even think about taking the AFC East crown.
