Newly-signed Dolphins tight end Jordan Cameron said that the possibility of playing with quarterback Ryan Tannehill was a "big part" of his decision to join Miami. 

Cameron signed a two-year deal with the Dolphins this week. The deal is worth $15 million and comes with $5 million guaranteed, according to Pro Football Talk.  

"He's young and he's wiling to work and he puts the hours in," Cameron said of Tannehill, according to the Dolphins' website. "It's definitely a big part of my decision."

Tannehill is entering his fourth season as Dolphins quarterback. He passed for 4,045 yards and 27 touchdowns, both career highs, last season. 

Cameron had 24 receptions for 424 yards and two touchdowns in ten games with the Browns last year.
