  • Stay, Go or Restructure- TE Jordan Cameron

    Stay, go or restructure: TE Jordan Cameron
    Experience: Five seasons
    2015 stats: 35 receptions, 386 yards, three touchdowns
    2016 salary/cap charge: $7.5 million/$9.5 million cap
    Analysis: The Cameron experiment did not work for Miami. The Dolphins signed Cameron to a two-year contract last offseason in hopes that the former Pro Bowler would revert back to form. Cameron worked hard and stayed healthy. However, he never found his rhythm with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Cameron’s best game was against the Washington Redskins in Week 1 when he recorded four catches for 73 yards -- both were season highs. Now Miami must decide if Cameron can have a much better 2016 in which his $7.5 million salary can match his production.

    Something I saw on ESPN starting a series on players teams need to make decisions. Should make for some good topics.

    I love Jordan Cameron, but for whatever reason he & RT never got comfortable together in our anemic O...Cameron absolutely lit it up as a Cleveland Brown with lesser talent at QB; he's a WR stuck in a TE's body and can make plays all over the field..but obviously if we're not gonna take advantage of his strengths we may as well move on. Personally, i'd like to restructure him and get a 2nd look...

      Cameron was abused in his usage as well as on the field as a blocker. However, with Landry and without a VG OL, there was only so much you could do with him. I'm on the fence with this one, and Gase did say that he wanted a TE who could do everything. Not sure he can find that in FA. and wonder what he thinks of Sims.

        Agree... he had to help out much more in pass and run protection and blocking here. Expecting a more productive season from him going forward.

      He was expected to block more here as he had to help out Twiddle dumb, dumber, dumberer, dumbest, and dumbestier...

      Production wise, he was no worse than Clay, and actually better considering they both ended the season with 3 TDs with Clay having caught 16 more passes...
      Clay - 51 catches, 528 yards, 3 TDs
      Cameron - 35 catches, 386 yards, 3 TDs

      I think Cameron should be restructured and will flourish under Gase's offense.

        I say give him a chance with the new regime restructure.
        The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

          I'd like to keep him....and if we actually build an OL he might not have to block most of the time. That's not what he's best at and we wasted his talent this year.

            IF we keep him, the targets for Landry are gonna have to come way down. I expect Gase to do this regardless. Parker has to be the feature WR, as Gase did in Denver and Chi.

              Hopefully that means Landry's penalties come down as well...

            Jordan Cameron is a Pro Bowl tight end. It would be a mistake to let him go. His play on the field went down because of the offensive playcalling, the quarterback play and the offensive line. The Dolphins 'should' improve in ALL these areas IF they hired the right coach and promoted the right guy to be the next GM. If they let Cameron go he will return to Pro Bowl form and he will then be on a laundry list of players who were once Dolphins and then left and had great success for other teams.

              Our offense was clueless when it came to utilizing the TE. If we're going to give up on Cameron, we might as well forget about running any formations with a TE at all. If Gase is going to just stick with the same offensive schemes that the pubescent Tannehill is comfortable with, it's just a matter of time before 17's game gets him thrown under a bus too, which he will deserve. If he is going to bring in a big boy offense that isn't afraid to pound some defenses and pass off of the pounding, then Cameron is the kind of TE you want running down the seams or catching the deep outs underneath Parker's routes. It's time to stop pointing fingers at our pass catchers, folks. This cracker jack offense and our signal caller put fear into no one and that must stop.

                Months ago I wanted to give Cameron the boot but Gase SAYS he is going to scheme around his players so I'm for restructuring Cameron now.

                  Has he been with the Dolphins long enough to be a pathological liar yet?

                  I have gotten to the point where I don't believe one word out of any of the Dolphins front office guys until proven otherwise, which has yet to happen. I am tired of lip-service. I won't believe a word of what Gase or anyone else has to say until they prove it. A few years back Ross stated he was going to find a new, young up and coming coach that would be like a young Coach Don Shula. He hired Philbin. Then Ross stated recently that he was going to cast a wide net, leaving no stone unturned in this new head coaching search, when had the most NFL caliber coaches in a LONG time. The Dolphins had 25 coaches on their wish list and left about 20 stones unturned because those coaches didn't get an interview. The truth is that Ross had his eyes set on what the MEDIA hyped up as the hottest coach on the market. So, he flew out to pick Gase up, knowing full-well that Gase was the only "stone" he really wanted to turn over and make his new head coach. I'm tired of the LIES!!!!!!!

                  I agree Freak but Gase is here now and he will get his chance to PROVE IT. Got to give him some players to PROVE IT as well.

                  Yeah, we have to just grin and bear it I guess. We have to hope that Gase and Grier can do their jobs better then their predecessors and first sign and draft the right players THEN use those players to the best of THEIR ABILITY and NOT try to force them to play into a scheme which will weaken that player.

                I would look to restructure his contract. A $9.5 million cap hit in 2016 is ridiculous for what his production was last year. If he is unwilling to restructure his contract then I would release him. We can sign another good free agent TE for half that price.
