Per the agreement, Cameron's base salary for 2016 has been reduced from $7.5 million to $6 million, while more importantly ensuring that the tight end will be retained this coming season after he was limited to 35 catches for 386 yards and three TDs in his first year with the Dolphins. Under new coach Adam Gase, who believes that Cameron is a good fit in his offensive system, the tight end could be in a for a bounce-back season, assuming he can avoid the sort of injury issues that hampered him during his four-year stint with the Browns.
The Miami Dolphins and Jordan Cameron have been in talks about restructuring the tight end's contract with the team, NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports.
Getlin adds that the potential changes being discussed pertaining to Cameron's salary "will be relatively minor." Either way, it appears as though the tight end will be back with the Dolphins in 2016, on the heels of a 2015 campaign in which he was limited to 35 catches for 386 yards and three TDs in his first year with the team after inking a two-year, $15 million deal with Miami last March.
Jordan Cameron is expected to stay in Miami next season, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Cameron only had 35 receptions for 386 yards and three scores in his first season in Miami. There was some thought that the team would be better off moving on and saving $9.5 million against the salary cap but head coach Adam Gase came out and stated Wednesday that he has no issues with the veteran tight end and expects Cameron to start for Miami in 2016.
Jordan Cameron only had six yards on two receptions in the season finale Sunday
Any way you look at it, Cameron was a bust for Miami this season. Sure Ryan Tannehill was inconsistent, but even when he was playing well (had 350 yards passing Sunday), Cameron just wasn't a big part of the offense. Cameron is signed for the 2016 season as well but the Miami Dolphins may elect to bring in another tight end to either take the starting job away for him or at the very least, compete for it.
Jordan Cameron had three receptions for 34 yards in the Miami Dolphins loss to the Colts on Sunday.
Cameron has been a huge disappointment his first season in south Florida. The Dolphins were hoping he would make up for the loss of Charles Clay but it just hasn't happened. It's not all his fault however as the offense has been about as inconsistent as you can get.
