Signed just two years ago as a highly coveted free agent, tight end Jordan Cameron is said to be calling it a career.
The news was broke by Ryan Bartow on Twitter. Although Bartow doesn’t say it’s been confirmed it sure sounds like Cameron is moving on from the game of football.

If true it’s not surprising. Cameron has struggled mightily since signing a two-year, $15 million dollar deal with the Miami Dolphins in 2015. His first year as a Dolphin was less-than-spectacular as he went on to catch just 35 passes for 386 and three touchdowns. This past year was much of the same; Cameron caught just eight passes for 80 yards and one touchdown before going on injured reserve due to a concussion.
Cameron last stepped on the field in week three against his former team, the Cleveland Browns. What he did in Cleveland – specifically in his Pro Bowl season in 2014 – is what intrigued teams and fans the most.
Injuries have been Cameron’s achilles heal. In six NFL seasons he’s suffered from broken ribs to a bad hamstring. Most notably, however, are the four concussions that are or will ultimately cut his NFL dream short.
Cameron isn’t under contract with anyone after his two-year deal in Miami expired with the start of the new NFL league year. With Cameron and Dion Sims taking a big deal with the Chicago Bears they’ll plan to roll into 2017 with Julius Thomas and Anthony Fasano as their tight ends.
