Jordan Cameron is being put a great position to excel this season. He possesses an incredibly mix of size (6'5" and 254 pounds) and speed, and he'll be the "move" tight end in an offense being run by two coaches who love to utilize the tight end position. New Head Coach Rob Chudzinski turned athletic tight end Greg Olsen into a 69-catch, 843-yard player last season, and new Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner had great success with the athletic Antonio Gates in San Diego. Look for Cameron to have a 2012 Kyle Rudolph-type emergence this season.

2012 Game Summaries
Week 3 - The rookie Cameron got a chance to play more this week thanks to the absence of veteran Alex Smith and was actually one of the few bright spots for the Browns. He caught 5 of 7 passes thrown his way and wound up leading the team in yards with 45. It looked like he was a favorite target of Weeden, who looked for him downfield quite often. There appears to be some chemistry and potential here to keep an eye on.
Week 4 - Coming off what some thought was a breakout game, Cameron saw 6 targets but only caught 1 for 15 as he couldnít get open. The completion was a pretty play, though, as Cameron showed soft hands on a slant route, bringing down a high throw in stride.
Week 5 - Jordan Cameron and the entire Browns offense couldnít get many consistent drives going on Sunday. Cameron was able to haul in some decent gains through the air over the middle of the field and it looked like he almost had a touchdown on a bizarre play. Weeden threw two forward passes near the goal line and found Cameron in the back of the endzone on one of them, not realizing this was an illegal play which discredited the touchdown. Cameron looks like the #1 TE in this offense but the QB play is too inconsistent and there will likely always be a heavy commitment to the running game with rookie RB Richardson that will further de value Browns skilled players.
Week 6 - Cameron's first reception came late in the third quarter when he was wide open but did well to sprint down the sideline for the first down gain after. On play-action, Cameron stumbled to the ground looking to get into his route. Despite falling down, Weeden still had time to find him running a crossing route to carry the ball to the edge of the endzone.
Week 7 - In what was a big game for the Browns passing attack against the Colts, Cameron was very quiet as the second tight end. Cameron had just a single target, his lowest involvement in over a month. His lone target and reception came on a quick out route during the final two minutes of the first half, getting out-of-bounds to stop the clock. Cameron was also penalized for a false start penalty, setting the offense back on a second-half possession. Cameronís athleticism is still intriguing in long-term formats, but clearly a secondary option with Ben Watson in the lineup.
Week 8 - Cameron caught just one short pass along the sideline for his only catch of the game, but with how putrid the Cleveland passing game was he was actually the teamís fourth-leading receiver.
Week 9 - Cameron was the targeted receiver on Weeden's interception in the second quarter, but later drew an important pass interference on his second target to convert a third and long.
Week 11 - Both of Cameronís targets were poorly thrown by Weeden. Cameron was split out on both occasions near the goal line. The second target came on fourth-and-goal where Weeden through the ball out of bounds. Cameron had no chance to get his feet in-bounds even if he hauled in an impressive contested catch. Cameron is an intriguing flyer at tight end, but needs Ben Watson out of the picture and a more defined role for expanded fantasy relevance.
Week 12 - Cameron showed his athleticism in catching Clevelandís first touchdown pass. A tight end by position, he was lined up in the right slot and ran an out route, easily beating the Pittsburgh linebacker he was facing in coverage.
Week 13 - Cameron was reduced to limited snaps and targets again this week, but once again flashed his potential down the road. On his first target, coming in the fourth quarter, Cameron made an excellent diving reception on an out route. It was a wide receiver-like play that looked routine for the athletic tight end. Later in the fourth, Cameron turned a quick out route into a big gain by eluding the first defender. Those two plays highlight Cameronís ability to make plays on the ball while it is in the air and his ability to turn a routine play into a long gain. With Ben Watson a free agent after the season, Cameron is one to watch for a possible expanded role.
Week 14 - Cameronís ten yard reception included a bone crushing hit that he delivered on a linebacker.
Week 15 - Cameron caught three passes for thirty-four yards on three targets as a tertiary option in Clevelandís passing game. The second-year man from USC did impress on a twenty-eight yard catch-and-run that brought the Browns into Washington territory in the third quarter, but quarterback Brandon Weeden got picked off on the next play from scrimmage.
