  • Jordan Cameron Takes Pay Cut

    The Dolphins got to work on reshaping their roster for the 2016 season on Wednesday by agreeing to a trade with the Eagles that will bring cornerback Byron Maxwell and linebacker Kiko Alonso to Miami.

    That comes after the Dolphins restructured the contracts of defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and linebacker Koa Misi to create cap space. They’ll get a little more after reworking tight end Jordan Cameron’s contract as well.

    According to multiple reports, Cameron has agreed to a revised deal that will keep him with the team for a second season. Cameron signed a two-year, $15 million deal with the Dolphins last year that called for him to make $7.5 million while counting $9.5 million against the cap.

    Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports that Cameron will now be paid $6 million and that no extra years were added to the deal to further spread out the cap hit. Cameron caught 35 passes for 386 yards and three touchdowns last season and the team will be looking for more in Adam Gase’s first season as head coach.

    I'm sure he'll get that $1.5M back as either incentive if he has a big year, or reworked as a bonus of some sort.

    Glad we lowered his cap hit. This was a win for all involved. Hope he has a great season.

      As you know I really wanted to keep him. I'm really glad to see this. He is proving he is a team player and I like him even more now!

        Agree. I felt like we didn't have him in the game plan as much as we should have last year. Part of that was the need to keep a TE in to block thanks to our swiss cheese oline. I'm excited to see how Gase uses him. Marcellus Bennett was an absolute beast for the Bears last season and I expect we'll see a lot more plays with Cameron isolated on a LB or S in the new offense.

      After Gase said he wanted to keep Cameron I thought I long term deal would've been in order. Cameron is good and wasn't used properly and didn't seem to fit "Lazors" scheme. Even Sims regressed.

      I'm a huge Jordan Cameron fan so to me this is great news...This guy is a WR in a TE's body & if used properly will make plays all over the field, i still remember when he was with the Browns he almost single-handedly beat us with a highlight reel display of great plays,, hopefully Gase will use the hell out of him this coming season!

        While I may not be his biggest fan, I'm glad to see he wants to stay and play and is willing to take a pay cut....

        So good for Miami.....

        Has anyone packed up Grimes' crap in a Walmart bag yet and thrown it out of the building.....

        He's a stud ! He just needs the right OC, and it would help for the o-line todo their job and all the needs to happen next is for the QB to do his job.
