The Cleveland Browns have fallen on hard times. First, WR Josh Gordon gets suspended for a year, then QB Johnny Manziel checks himself into a rehab facility. And now there's TextGate, in which the NFL is investigating whether the Browns' owners illegally texted coaches on the sidelines. If found guilty, the Browns could be fined and/or lose draft picks.
And now their tight end is looking for a ticket out of town.
Jason La Confora of CBSSports.com reports that TE Jordan Cameron, a free agent, wants no part of the Cleveland circus in 2015.
Cameron will be a free agent, and made the Pro Bowl in 2013, but his appeal on the open market may be limited due to concussions and other injuries he battled in 2014. It should be noted the Browns are well below the expected 2015 salary cap, and could certainly tag Cameron in hopes he is a part of the solution in Cleveland.
For the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cameron could possibly be an attractive free agent to help bring a new dynamic to their already versatile offense. The Steelers are going to have to start actively seeking a successor to the aging Heath Miller, and they could certainly use an athletic tight end like Cameron who can stretch the field and help while also opening up the middle of the field for the likes of Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant.
