A fourth round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft (the same draft that gave us fellow departed Browns Buster Skrine and Jabaal Sheard), Jordan Cameron was selected to add some much needed offense to a growing Browns squad. The tight end position was running a wee bit thin behind Ben Watson (I miss that dude), so the Browns decided to add to it. Humorously, there was a player named Cameron Jordan in this same draft, which has led to countless confusion in the NFL.
2013 was something really special for the Browns in terms of offense. Josh Gordon led the entire league in receiving yards and Cameron was second on the team with 917 yards and 7 touchdowns. What was impressive was that we had three different QB’s throwing that year and the offense didn’t skip a beat with anyone in the pocket. Cameron made the Pro Bowl that year (with 5 other Browns including Gordon). Cameron was such a beast that season. Defenders couldn’t stop him and he used his strength to rack up the stats. What a year it was for him.
2014 was a bit of a letdown for Jordan, as he was bogged down by head injuries and accumulated only 424 receiving yards. Still, he was a great tight end for us. I really liked the way he played and how he was so tough to defend. After the season, we all thought he was leaving after stating he’s not interested in staying in Cleveland. That’s why it came as such a surprise to me when I heard he might be coming back. In the end, it’s a moot point. He still left for Miami like we all assumed and I wish him luck there.
