Report: Jordan Cameron Turns Down $6-7 Million from Browns


It looks like the Cleveland Browns are serious about keeping Jordan Cameron but may have some trouble doing so. According to a report this morning the Browns have started negotiations with Cameron but he has already turned down a contract between 6 and 7 million dollars:

Cameron’s free agency will be a very interesting one. Cameron had a break out year in 2013 but dealt with a ton of injuries, and some poor quarterback play, last season. His numerous concussions have kept him out of games and are a big concern for teams moving forward. Unlike other injuries, where once back to full health it is in the past, more concussions are likely after having a few.

Cameron is a West Coast guy as well. He may be interested in returning out that direction as well. There are plenty of teams that could use the services of tight end that showed signs of being elite. Yet how much might he be willing to leave on the table to be closer to family? The Browns have a ton of cap space and are likely to over pay for some players that they really want.

Fans will likely wonder if the instability at both the quarterback position as well as the offensive coordinator position will play a role in free agent’s decision. Could Cameron, who has experienced all the bad with the Browns, not want to subject himself to more change? Could he be worried about who, besides Johnny Manziel, could be throwing him passes?

If Cameron moves on the Browns will have a few options. Julius Thomas and Charles Clay, far different types of players, would be great, if expensive, fits in free agency. The NFL Draft doesn’t have a “for sure” guy but Maxx Williams leads an interesting crop of players that could intrigue the Browns.

Even if they sign Cameron the Browns could look for another tight end. That would give them insurance against Cameron’s injuries as well as give the team two tight ends to cause havoc for defenses.
