Jordan Cameron caught his lone target for six yards in the Dolphins' third preseason game Saturday night.
With the Dolphins likely to sit their starters for the final preseason game, Cameron had a very quiet preseason, catching just two passes for six scoreless yards on three targets. Jarvis Landry and Cameron work the same areas of the field, and Ryan Tannehill and Landry clearly have a much stronger rapport at this point. Cameron is in a tier with many others as a mid-to-low TE1. Aug 29 - 9:04 PM

Coach Joe Philbin says the Dolphins plan to "attack the middle of the field a little more" this season.

In sure-handed slot receiver Jarvis Landry and athletic specimen Jordan Cameron, the Dolphins have the weapons to do just that. Philbin noted Cameron offers a "bigger" catch radius than outgoing TE Charles Clay, who stood 6-foot-3, 245 to Cameron's 6-foot-5, 254. Cameron has impressed in OTAs and could see an uptick in early-season targets with DeVante Parker on the shelf.

Coach Joe Philbin said he "really like(s) the ways (Jordan Cameron) has fit into the offense so far."

Over the last two seasons, Charles Clay averaged 4.2 catches for 45.4 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. When healthy, the highly athletic Cameron provides an upgrade on Clay in terms of both size and speed. He's a nice fit for intermediate-throwing Ryan Tannehill and provides a nice ceiling at an eighth-round ADP.

The Dolphins scored touchdowns on just 51.5 percent of their red zone visits last season.

They ranked 21 out of 32 teams in that category. The Dolphins addressed this need by adding size this offseason. 6'5" Jordan Cameron and 6'3" DeVante Parker are two red zone weapons Ryan Tannehill didn't have a year ago. Coming off a breakout season, 224-pound Lamar Miller will continue to get first crack at goal line carries.

The Miami Herald considers the 2016 portion of Jordan Cameron's two-year contract with the Dolphins a "mirage."

Cameron's deal was announced as two years and $15 million. But his cap charge is only $4.5 million this year while the 2016 number is $9.5 million. Furthermore, Cameron's $7.5 million 2016 base salary doesn't become fully guaranteed until the second day of the new league year. Unless he stays injury-free and produces at a high level, there's a good chance we'll be talking about Cameron as a cap casualty 11 months from now.

According to ESPN Cleveland, Jordan Cameron was "frustrated with the (Browns') instability at quarterback and constant change in offensive direction."

The Browns thought they had Cameron back on a two-year, $15 million deal, but he ended up signing a nearly-identical contract with the Dolphins. In other words, the tie didn't go to the team that drafted Cameron in 2011. His loss has left the Browns comically thin at tight end, and almost entirely bereft of playmakers.

Dolphins signed TE Jordan Cameron, formerly of the Browns, to a two-year contract worth $15 million.

This one is official, as it was announced by the Dolphins themselves. Earlier, there were reports that Cameron had put pen to paper and re-signed with the Browns on a similar deal. Cameron has immense upside as a seam-stretching, catch-first tight end, but has seen his career marred by concussions in three-straight seasons. He's a huge injury risk, but infinitely bigger playmaker than transition player Charles Clay, who may now skip town to Buffalo or Cleveland.

Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson reports free agent Jordan Cameron will actually sign with the Dolphins.

Initial reports had Cameron signing a two-year, $15 million deal to re-up with the Browns. The deal was reportedly done, but the Dolphins jumped back into the mix at the last minute and appear to be stealing Cameron away from Cleveland. It's a sign the Dolphins are prepared to lose transition player Charles Clay.

Browns re-signed TE Jordan Cameron to a two-year, $15 million contract.

The Browns decided not to franchise tag Cameron, and they've been rewarded with a reasonable two-year deal. With Josh Gordon suspended indefinitely, Cameron is easily the Browns' most talented pass catcher, but he has a troubling concussion history. As it is, the Browns were not going to be a better team by letting Cameron walk, and they've now made a smart move in a free-agency period where they've otherwise been quiet. The Browns' quarterback situation is an absolute mess, but Cameron is firmly on the TE1 radar for 2015.
Mar 12 - 5:57 PM

Free agent Jordan Cameron is visiting the Dolphins, and the sides have a "lot of mutual interest."

Per NFL Network, the Browns and a mystery team are also in the mix. We can't really think of a good reason for the increasingly talent-less Browns to let Cameron walk, even considering his concussion history. Signing with the Dolphins would be a strong sign that Charles Clay is moving on to Buffalo.
Mar 12 - 3:17 PM

Free agent Jordan Cameron is expected to visit with the Dolphins.

It didn't seem like the Fins would need a backup plan at tight end after slapping Charles Clay with the transition tag. Of course, that was before the Bills threw Miami a curve ball by bringing Clay in for a visit. Cameron is one of the league's premier receiving tight ends, but teams seems to be shying away from him because of his history with concussions (three in the last two seasons). The Browns and Raiders are also keeping tabs on Cameron.
Mar 10 - 10:22 PM

Yahoo's Rand Getlin reports the Jaguars view free agent Jordan Cameron as a fallback option if they can't land Julius Thomas.

The Jaguars have no known competition for Thomas, so the marriage there seems inevitable. Cameron is the next-best tight end in free agency, and Getlin reports the Browns, Raiders, Broncos and Seahawks "are in play."
Mar 8 - 6:35 PM

Coach Mike Pettine said at the Combine the Browns are open to re-signing free agent Jordan Cameron, but only at "the right price."

"It's being discussed," said Pettine. "Gotta be the right price." Browns beat writers don't expect Cameron to return, but the Browns aren't exactly overflowing with pass-catcher options. Of course, they don't have a quarterback either. Cleveland has a ways to go to build a competitive offense.
Feb 18 - 3:31 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported in October that the Seahawks tried to acquire Jordan Cameron from the Browns in exchange for Percy Harvin.

After being denied by Browns GM Ray Farmer, the Seahawks then asked the Broncos if they'd be interested in a Julius Thomas-for-Harvin swap. Broncos GM John Elway didn't bite. Cameron and Thomas are now set to hit the free-agent market March 10, and the Seahawks are expected to cut TE Zach Miller. Cameron played for coach Pete Carroll at USC. He could come at a bargain price after each of his previous three seasons were marred by concussion issues.
Feb 13 - 11:10 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports impending free agent Jordan Cameron is "not interested" in re-signing with the Browns.

Who would choose to remain in that mess of an organization? We can't blame Cameron. Although he's proven to be extremely prone to concussions, Cameron is a major threat when on the field. The former college basketball player is a seam-stretching tight end who averaged 17.7 YPR this past season. He's going to be one of the more interesting free-agent cases to follow in March.
