Jordan Cameron said he was willing to accept a pay cut because he spoke to Julius Thomas, who told him he "HAS" to play for new coach Adam Gase.
Cameron would've been cut had he not agreed to slash $1.5 million off his salary, which now stands at $6 million. A humbled Cameron also admitted he "didn't do much to deserve a raise" his first year in Miami. Thomas was a TD-scoring machine in Gase's Broncos offense, which also made productive use of Martellus Bennett (when healthy) and journeyman Zach Miller last year in Chicago. Cameron is a sneaky bounce-back candidate who should be able to outproduce his late-round ADP. This is a contract year for Cameron. Jun 2 - 1:44 PM

The new Dolphins coaching staff believes TE Jordan Cameron was not used properly last season.

This could explain why Cameron was retained with only a modest pay reduction despite falling square on his face last season. Cameron hauled in just 50 percent of his targets his first year in Miami, and he did not have more than 35 yards in any game after Week 2. New coach Adam Gase has a strong history with tight ends and will hope to put Cameron's career back on the right track. After being dramatically over-drafted last season, Cameron could be something of a post-hype fantasy sleeper this year.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said the tight end position has been "one of the strengths" of his offense.

Gase had success with Julius Thomas in Denver before getting solid production out of Martellus Bennett and Zach Miller in Chicago last season. Jordan Cameron is atop the tight end depth chart in Miami, and Gase is "interested" in working with him. "I’m interested to see what we can do with him, what his strengths are," Gase said. "I need to see him live. I need to experiment, need to flex him out and see what he’s comfortable doing, what routes he likes to do. That’s going to be a learning experience for our coaching staff." Gase will try to turn Cameron around after a disappointing first season in Miami. If it does not work out with Cameron, Dion Sims will be an interesting name to watch.

Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron agreed to reduce his base salary from $7.5 million to $6 million.

Cameron was scheduled to count $9.5 million against the cap before the adjustment. It is a surprisingly small pay cut after Cameron was almost nonexistent his first year in Miami. The 27-year-old will look to rehab his value under offensive guru Adam Gase before hitting free agency next offseason.
Mar 8 - 9:05 AM

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports the Dolphins have approached TE Jordan Cameron about restructuring his contract.

Ideally, the two sides would reach a deal prior to the start of free agency to give the Dolphins as much cap relief as possible. Getlin said any tweaks to Cameron's contract would be minor. Cameron was a bust in his first season with Miami (just 35 catches for 386 yards and three touchdowns) but he'll have one more chance to rebuild his value leading up to next year's free agency.
Mar 6 - 11:17 AM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said TE Jordan Cameron is a fit for his offense.

"We've made a living off the tight end in this offense so expect him to be a big part of it," Gase said. Cameron is a potential cap cut for his $7.5M salary, but it sounds like the Dolphins expect him to rebound in Gase’s scheme. Cameron could still be asked for a pay cut after a 35/386/3 line in 2015.
Feb 24 - 5:21 PM

The Miami Herald believes the Dolphins should release Jordan Cameron.

Cameron is due a non-guaranteed $7.5 million. Releasing him could be the only option if he doesn’t accept a pay cut. Cameron had just a 35/386/3 line his first season in Miami.
Feb 13 - 4:32 PM

The Palm Beach Post believes the Dolphins may ask Jordan Cameron to take a pay cut.

Cameron was signed to replace Charles Clay's production, but he managed just 35 catches on 70 targets for 386 yards and three scores. There is almost no way Miami keeps Cameron at his scheduled $9.5 million cap hit. Releasing Cameron would save Miami all of his $7.5 million base salary against the cap.
Feb 4 - 10:47 AM

Jordan Cameron caught 2-of-4 targets for six yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Patriots.

Miami’s free agent replacement for Charles Clay opened the season with at least 7 targets in four of the first five games, but he disappeared from the offense over the second half. Cameron’s touchdown against New England was just his third of the season, and he finishes with just 386 yards on 35 receptions. There is almost zero chance Miami keeps Cameron at his current $9.5 million cap hit.
Jan 3 - 7:00 PM

Jordan Cameron secured 3-of-3 targets for 34 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 loss to the Colts.

He also had a touchdown erased by a Jarvis Landry flag for offensive pass interference. This was one of Cameron's most productive game in months, which tells you all you need to know about his failed season in Miami. He'll likely play his last game for the Dolphins next week versus New England.

Jordan Cameron caught his lone target for five yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Chargers.

A mega-bust in free agency, Cameron will play his final two games in a Dolphins uniform against the Colts and Patriots in Weeks 16-17.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 08:23:00 PM

Jordan Cameron caught 3-of-4 targets for 35 yards in the Dolphins' Week 14 loss to the Giants.

Cameron was involved early with a few first-quarter targets, but was barely heard from again. That's been the case for much of the season, as Cameron has mostly been a non-factor in his first season with the Dolphins.
Tue, Dec 15, 2015 12:56:00 AM

Dolphins coach Dan Campbell said he wants to see more out of Jordan Cameron.

Ironically, this comment came on the same day Cameron's replacement in Cleveland, Gary Barnidge, was rewarded with a contract extension. The coaching changes and moving parts haven't helped but that doesn't mask Cameron's massive underachievement this year. He's only caught 48.1 percent of his targets and hasn't shown much chemistry with Ryan Tannehill. Even in a plus matchup against the Giants, we wouldn't go anywhere near Cameron this week.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 02:43:00 PM

Jordan Cameron caught 1-of-3 targets for four yards in Week 13 against Baltimore.

Cameron remained a minor part of Miami's pass game. He hasn't had more than 25 yards over the last four weeks. Cameron isn't a streaming option despite a Week 14 matchup with the Giants.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 05:34:00 PM

Jordan Cameron caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards in the Dolphins' Week 12 loss to the Jets.

Cameron scored a touchdown in Week 11, but otherwise he's been a very minor part of Miami's passing game since early in the season. He belongs on waiver wires in 14- and 16-team fantasy leagues.
