The Cleveland Browns' roller-coaster offseason ramped up with another headline Tuesday when they signed cornerback Joe Haden to a big long-term extension. The next player on the docket: tight end Jordan Cameron.
Just weeks after a report surfaced that Cameron and the Browns were getting nowhere in contract talks, Cameron has changed agents. The Akron Beacon Journal notes that Cameron fired his previous agent last week and has hired CAA, who represented Browns center Alex Mack in his rocky talks with the Browns.
This figures to be a complicated contract to work out. The Browns likely want to see if Cameron can back up his breakout season under new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Cameron, meanwhile, might find it hard to get an offer he wants because the Browns know they have the franchise tag in their back pocket.
The franchise number for tight ends this season was around $7 million, which sounds like a fine backup plan for Cleveland if the team and Cameron can't come to a deal. With Josh Gordon's future in doubt and a shaky-looking wide receiver crop, Cameron will have every chance to improve on his 917-yard 2014 campaign.
