6:53pm: Despite having reached an agreement to re-sign with the Browns, Cameron didn’t officially sign the contract and now appears poised to join the Dolphins, according to a report.
4:57pm: Despite paying a visit to Miami, tight end Jordan Cameron is returning to the Browns, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Rapoport reports (via Twitter) that the two sides have reached an agreement on a new contract worth $15MM for two years.
Cameron struggled with injuries in 2014, managing to play in 10 games but only catching 24 passes. However, he had a breakout season in 2013, when he caught 80 passes for nearly 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns.
This is an interesting move considering Cameron reportedly was not interested in returning to the Browns. The Dolphins were thought to be one of the frontrunners for his services, but with Cameron re-signing in Cleveland, that makes it more likely that Miami will be able to retain Charles Clay. The Bills and Dolphins will now be the two teams competing for Clay’s services, unless another team comes in late..
The Raiders were another team with major interest, but the team was hesitant to commit to Cameron due to his significant concussion history, writes Bill Williamson of ESPN (via Twitter). The Raiders had previous experience with how bad those situations can get with the handling of Nick Roach.
