Jordan Cameron blames struggles on defensive attention, chemistry

Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron started the season on fire, posting over 90 yards in four of his first five games. But Cameron has only eclipsed over 64 yards once since Week 4 and blames added defensive attention and chemistry issues with quarterback Jason Campbell:

He alluded Friday to “some chemistry things here and there, but I don’t think that’s a problem at all. I’ve just been getting a lot more attention so it’s harder to get open. They pay attention to what you’re doing. They’re hitting you in all areas, and I just think it’s the way the defense has been playing.”

Sounds like Cameron wanted to be open about his chemistry issues, but didn’t want to throw his quarterback under the bus.

Under Campbell, Cameron’s targets per game are down from his early season numbers though they’re not overly significant.

The Browns have been targeting other receivers, like Greg Little in recent weeks, something they didn’t do in the early portions of the season.

The former USC Trojan has six touchdowns and 629 yards on the season.
