Cameron (concussion) announced his retirement Friday, reports.
A fourth-round pick in the 2011 draft, Cameron emerged in a big way during the 2013 season, catching 80 passes for 917 yards and seven touchdowns for an otherwise unremarkable Cleveland team. He's subsequently been hampered by a series of concussions, which arguably impacted his play even when he was healthy. Cameron acknowledged as much in his retirement statement, saying he had started thinking about the concussions while on the field. He'll wisely put his long-term health above the possibility of squeezing out a few more seasons, hanging up his cleats at the age of 28. The Dolphins have already moved on, acquiring pass-catching tight end Julius Thomas in a February trade with the Jaguars.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Just when it looked like it couldn't get any worse for Cameron, it got much worse. Coming off a dreadful year, he was told to take a $1.5 million pay cut, or beat it. Knowing no team, after a 35-catch season, would pony up even close to the $6 million he'll still earn this year, he crawled back to Miami. But it also gives him the opportunity to turn around his career with new coach Adam Gase, who has a history of heavy TE use. It's not just that Cameron was underused last season – his 4.3 TPG were a three-year low – it's that he let opportunities slip through his grasp. As in, a 50-percent catch rate that ranked last among 31 TE. His 5.5 YPT was also bottom rung. What's more, while he got 14 red-zone looks, only three came inside the 10, this despite physical gifts that few TE can match – 6-5, 260, a 4.59 40, 37.5-inch vertical and a large wingspan with 33.5-inch arms. The Dolphins should at least stretch the field a little better this season with DeVante Parker healthy, perhaps giving Cameron more room to operate across the middle. If Ryan Tannehill finds a bit of competence, and if Cameron stays healthy enough to play 16 games for just the second time in his career, then perhaps he can return close to his Pro Bowl-level from a couple seasons ago. He'll certainly come cheap enough to make it worth finding out.
After a breakout year in 2013, Cameron was limited to 10 games last season because of a concussion and shoulder injury. The year was largely a waste, as he averaged 17.7 yards per catch and 8.8 yards per target, but on only 48 targets. That he caught only half of those targets speaks to the Browns' awful quarterbacking. Freed from QB purgatory after signing with the Dolphins this offseason, Cameron for the first time has the opportunity to see just how much he can do with his talent. Few tight ends can match his elite physical gifts, as he's big (6-5, 249) and fast (4.59 40) with great leaping ability (37.5 inches) and a giant wingspan (33.5-inch arms). In Miami, a revamped receiving corps with two sub-4.4 burners in Kenny Stills and rookie DeVante Parker, when he's healthy, should stretch the field and allow Cameron to feast on mismatches wherever he lines up, exploiting coverage no matter the route. He also likely will serve as the chief red-zone threat; in 2013, he caught 11 of 19 passes inside the 20-yard line for seven touchdowns. His concussion history is the only concern, as he's had three in two seasons.
Cameron added his name to the short list of elite receiving tight ends last season, ranking second in yards and catches. He is a prototypical tight end at 6-5, 249, with 4.53 speed, great leaping ability (37.5 inches) and long arms (33.5 inches). He excels at making athletic plays downfield on receiver routes out of the slot and is a menace in the red zone (19 targets; five scores on 11 targets inside the 10). He was hurt last year, though, by Cleveland's quarterback carousel that ranked 31st in completion percentage (55.7) and 29th in yards per attempt (6.42). After scoring five touchdowns and averaging 90 yards per game in the first four games, he scored just once more the rest of the season and averaged 50 yards per game. He was also hurt by an offense that made just 36 red-zone drives, fewest in the league. The concern this year is also the season-long loss of dynamic wideout Josh Gordon, who led the league in receiving last year. Although Cameron had two of his three biggest games in Weeks 1 and 2 last season when Gordon was suspended, that was before teams started giving extra defensive attention to the tight end. Losing Gordon means more targets for Cameron as the No. 1 receiver, but it also guarantees double teams and extra safety help. With Gordon exploiting the deep field, Cameron was often free work underneath last season. That's not going to be the case this season, unless free-agent acquisition Miles Austin stays healthy and returns to the 15.7-YPC playmaker he exhibited in 2009 and 2010 as a 1,000-yard receiver.
Cameron is a big (6-5), athletic player who, like many great tight ends, comes from a basketball background. The Browns were content to let veteran Ben Watson go and use Cameron in his place for the passing game. Cameron's not an overly physical player, but the Browns brought in Kellen Davis, who can stay home to block if needed. Coach Rob Chudzinski has already sung the praises of Cameron, whom he said has the skill set to make an impact in the offense this season.
Cameron is a cross-over athlete who played basketball in college. The 2011 fourth-round pick has good size and speed, but managed just six catches for 33 yards in his rookie season. The Browns don't have a standout tight end on the roster with Ben Watson and Evan Moore ahead of Cameron so he could get some opportunities, but there is no evidence in his past to suggest he'll produce anything with them.
Another player who converted from basketball, Cameron is something of a project for the Browns as he played only one year of football at USC. His athleticism is evidenced by a vertical leap of more than 37 inches, and he’ll have a solid veteran in Ben Watson from whom to learn. With some hard work and improvement in the blocking game, Cameron could work his way into the fantasy picture. It just probably won’t be this year.
