Jordan Cameron announced today that he would be retiring from pro football. The 28-year old spent two years with the Dolphins and four years with the Cleveland Browns where he had a Pro Bowl season in 2013.
Cameron did not live up to expectations as a member of the Dolphins. His first seasons saw Joe Philbin fired and he was asked to be more of a blocker as the team wanted to emphasize the run game more. But with the hiring of Adam Gase, everyone hoped Cameron could return to form. But that was not the case as Cameron sustained a concussion, as he had done so many times before.
Concussions have now derailed the tight ends career and he is choosing to play it safe and just retire. Quote from NFL.com:
It’s sad to see a career come to end this way. Cameron was a star in Cleveland and if he could have stayed healthy, he had a bright future ahead of him. Cameron felt like he could return but it’s best to play it safe with your mental health, especially in this game.
Good luck to Jordan Cameron and his future endeavors. Thanks for all you did with the Dolphins.
