NFL Free Agency: Broncos reportedly interested in tight end Jordan Cameron

Could Jordan Cameron replace Julius Thomas in Denver?

According to Rand Getlin, an NFL Insider for Yahoo Sports, the Denver Broncos are among the teams interested in Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron.

With Julius Thomas likely heading to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Broncos are looking for replacements on the free agent market. Also, with tight end Virgil Green getting interest from other teams around the league, the Broncos may get a little desperate at tight end.

Cameron would give the Broncos a proven pass catcher who can step in and be the Broncos starting tight end from day one. Cameron's best season came in 2013 when he totaled 80 receptions for 917 yards and 7 touchdowns. He had a down 2014 that was plagued by injuries. He only totaled 24 receptions for 424 yards and 2 touchdowns in limited action for the Cleveland Browns. In four seasons in the NFL, Cameron has totaled 130 receptions for 1,600 yards, and 10 touchdowns.

Cameron has struggled with some concussion issues the past few seasons, but he's only 26 years old and can be an effective player if he can stay healthy. Obviously, health will be deciding factor here for the Broncos. If they are not concerned about his concussion history, they could become major players for his services.
