Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is wowing fans with his outstanding play this season. Through just five games, he has already set career highs in several offensive categories. However, it is not just Cameron’s ability to haul in receptions and score touchdowns that has the Browns impressed. The fact is he has shown improvement in several areas of his game.
“His blocking,” Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said, according to ClevelandBrowns.com. “He’s gotten a lot better at his blocking. I think his understanding of football and route running and being able to beat people man-to-man and those types of things. He’s grown as a player because he’s understanding the game better and getting in our system and being in our system for more time has helped that.”
The 25-year-old is making great strides in his third year in the system. He has taken the role of the top offensive threat on the team head on and never looked back. Even though he makes up a good amount of Cleveland’s production, he also wants to garner the attention of the defense so that other players can make a play. For instance, his numbers were not exactly up to par last week against the Buffalo Bills but his presence allowed other receivers to perform at a high level.
“You like to have that kind of balance on your offense where it could be anybody on any given day that has a chance to have the big day,” Chudzinski said, according to ClevelandBrowns.com. “You want the guys to be able to respond. Fortunately, we’ve been able to do that the last few games.”
Fans should expect Cameron to have a big game against the Detroit Lions, a team that has given up their fair of yards through the air.
