Cameron one of many roster decisions for Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins have a lot of work to do this offseason. Speaking with Jordan Cameron is right at the top of that list.

Cameron’s performance was certainly not what the Dolphins were hoping for when they offered him a contract with $12 million in guaranteed money at the start of the season — the 27-year-old amassed less than 400 receiving yards and failed to tally more than four catches in a single game.

That’s a far cry from the 80-catch, 917-yard season he had in 2013, a level Miami was hoping Cameron could get back to after dealing with concussion issues in 2014.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the tight end will likely be a major talking point with management this offseason:
"If the Dolphins are cool with 35 catches and limited chemistry with the QB costing $9.5 million against the cap, then nothing need be done. If that is not the team's idea of value, then Cameron gets cuts [sic] and suddenly the Dolphins save $7.5 million in cap space. The team could also extend Cameron and give him a bonus, add a couple of years to his contract and lower his cap number, but that is a risk because, again, he's no longer the former Pro Bowl player troubled by concussion issues coming to the team."
