Report: Browns tight end Jordan Cameron likely to play out contract
Cameron will make $1.4 million in base salary before becoming an unrestricted free agent after this season. If the team and Cameron can't reach a deal before he hits the market, the Browns will likely use the franchise tag on him. This season's franchise tag for tight ends is $7.035 million.
Cameron had 80 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns last season, earning his first Pro Bowl berth.
He had two catches for 47 yards in the Browns' 30-27 season-opening loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Cameron is questionable for this week's game against the New Orleans Saints after spraining the AC joint in his right shoulder against Pittsburgh.
