In 2007, we had a Head Coach named Cam Cameron. We have Cam Wake. We have Dion Jordan. We have Jordan Kovacs. Now we have Jordan Cameron. Son loves Cam Newton. The Saints have DE Cameron Jordan. OK, now that we got that out of the way, let’s get to know our new TE Jordan Cameron.
Jordan Cameron played exactly 9 games at TE in college for USC. In those 9 games, Jordan Cameron reeled in 16 passes for 126 yards with 1 TD, and a less than stellar 7.9 YPC.
In 2011, Jordan Cameron entered the NFL draft, and was invited to the NFL combine, where Cameron made a lot of noise, and turned some heads. He was a top performer in each and every category.
In the 2011 NFL Draft, Jordan Cameron was drafted in the 4th RD, #102 overall, by the Cleveland Browns.
The 6’5” 244 TE in 4 years with CLE played in total of 47 games, starting 31 of them. He amassed 130 receptions on 219 targets, for 1600 yards, and a total of 10 TD’s.
Cameron had a breakout season in 2013, and finished the season with an impressive 80 receptions for 917 yards, 7 TD’s.
Besides 2013, Cameron has only 50 receptions for 683 yards and 3 TD’s total in his 3 other seasons with CLE.
Cameron in his 4 years at CLE played with the following QB’s . . .
Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel, Connor Shaw, Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden, Spencer Lanning, Thad Lewis, Colt McCoy and Seneca Wallace. In his 4 years in CLE, the Browns had 20 WINS, 44 LOSSES.
Jordan Cameron has had 3 concussions in the last 3 years.
THE FUTURE AS A MIAMI DOLPHIN
Jordan Cameron: Tannehill was ‘big part of my decision’ to join Dolphins
(3/13/15) Jordan Cameron chose Miami over Cleveland, and he revealed that his decision was based on the opportunity to play with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, according to the Dolphins’ official website on Thursday.
“He’s young and he’s willing to work,” Cameron said. “He puts the hours in. They were singing his praises all day today. It was definitely a big part of my decision.”
If Cameron can stay healthy and on the field and concussion free, he could really be a difference maker for us this season. He brings the size and speed many of us have begged for for quite some time to the TE position. Cameron is a better athlete that Charles Clay. He is a big play threat whenever he’s on the field, and has the speed to blow up the seam. He also has the size to be a true a redzone target. The key with Cameron is keeping him healthy, and allowing him to do what he does best. Get him the ball in space and watch him go.
I think we’ll see Cameron used mostly as a receiver. He can block, but that’s not his strength. He could become a favorite target of Ryan Tannehill, as a TE is always the QB’s best friend. He will also open up the middle of the field for WR Jarvis Landry, and that might give Landry a better opportunity to break some big plays. I’m looking forward to seeing him play this year. He could make this offense very exciting, and that’s before we add additional excitement in this years draft!
