Beast doesn’t even begin to describe Cleveland Browns‘ second-year tight end Jordan Cameron.
He is a 6-foot-5, 254-pound sure-handed athlete. Now in his third year in the NFL, Cameron has already amassed 30 catches for 360 yards with five touchdown receptions. With his basketball background, he can create great mismatches with opposing teams’ linebackers and safeties as he can use box-out moves as it is second nature to him.
Cameron is becoming an elite level tight end rather quickly, and the sky is the limit on his potential, especially if he keeps on getting fed the ball all year long.
The Buffalo Bills might have a possible answer in linebacker Kiko Alonso, who is 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, and has been a ball-hawk with a league-leading four interceptions. He also has a nose for the ball as he loves contact perhaps too much.
This battle between Alonso and Cameron could be one to remember as they are similar athletes. Also, the safety help of Aaron Williams and Da’Norris Searcy could provide athleticism from behind that has been sorely lacking in recent years. The Bills have some experience covering large, athletic and consistent tight ends. They did so vs. the Carolina Panthers when they had to endure Greg Olsen, who is built extremely similarly to Cameron.
It should be interesting if the Bills can shut down someone like Cameron as he pays an excellent compliment to wide receiver Josh Gordon, and could create a coverage headache for defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.
