The Miami Dolphins will be hosting tight end Jordan Cameron on a free agent visit this week. This move is being made in response to the Buffalo Bills' heavy pursuit of tight end Charles Clay, who was given the transition tag last week. It's been reported by many in the media that the Bills are set to make Clay an offer the Dolphins can't match so the team is getting all their ducks in a row in the case that does happen.
There's no doubt that Cameron is a threat on the field, standing in at 6 feet, 5 inches. He will be a threat in the red zone and will be a mis-match for linebackers and slot cornerbacks throughout the NFL. However, the reason why he's available is because he has suffered three concussions in the past two seasons. In 2014, he only played in 10 games for the Cleveland Browns, catching 24 passes for 424 yards and 2 touchdowns.
If Cameron can stay healthy though, he will bring something this offense has been lacking. Cameron was a Pro Bowl player in 2013 when he caught 80 passes for 917 yards and 7 touchdowns. According to Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel, he is looking for a multi-year deal in a stable offense.
Besides the Dolphins, the Oakland Raiders are interested and the Cleveland Browns have shown interest in bringing him back. We'll see if the Dolphins let him leave the building without a contract in hand. If they do, it suggest they may be concerned about his injury history and may not feel confident in locking him up for several years.
