It’s been a long-road for Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron, who after two forgetful years in the NFL, came into this season facing a make-or-break season if he ever wanted to last in the NFL. A converted basketball player, Cameron was a project player drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL draft out of USC. Injuries and the steep learning curve under head coach Pat Shurmur, along with the likes of Colt McCoy and Thaddeus Lewis throwing passes to him, kept him irrelevant. b
But Thursday night’s performance has people buzzing about Cameron after he hauled in three passes for 42 yards and two touchdowns in just one half of work vs. the Detroit Lions, and now has four receptions for 72 yards and the two scores in about three quarters of action this preseason.
Brown quarterback Brandon Weeden has already developed some nice chemistry with Cameron this preseason, and he likes what he’s seen from the talented TE:
“He had a heck of a night,” said Weeden. “He had some great catches down there, some tough catches and I know he has that in him. He has a ton of ability. He’s such a big target that he can just jump out of the Stadium. You just throw it up high and let him go get it. He’s going to be a huge asset for this offense.”
