Dolphins Jordan Cameron, in his sixth NFL season, has the potential to be a fine NFL tight end. I've seen it. I saw what he did to the Dolphins in that 2013 regular season opener. He caught nine passes for 108 yards that day. And that wasn't his best game that season.
But Cameron has the look of a player needing to be built up now.
He has the look of a player either lacking in confidence or worrying too much about the results.
Cameron needs to be reminded to trust the process of playing his position. Trust his abilities. Trust his training. Trust that if he handles that business, the results will come.
That's not how he's playing now.
The story went on to say, Gase's offense is TE friendly. But, Cameron struggled in the offseason. He struggled early in camp. And Friday against Dallas he had an almost certain TD catch from Tannehill on a short slant in the red zone. But he juggled and dropped it. And he didn't seem to recover strong after that -- another sign he needs a confidence boost. So this week of practice, which starts Sunday afternoon for the Dolphins, could be pivotal for Cameron.

Cameron is two seasons removed from a breakout 80-917-7 season in Cleveland. So does new head coach Adam Gase provide hope for a Cameron resurgence? Perhaps. In Chicago last season, Martellus Bennett and Zach Miller combined for 87-878-8. Gase also oversaw the best of Julius Thomas in Denver, with 43-489-12 in 2014 and 65-788-12 in 2013. If Cameron can even come close to that type of production, he could re-enter the TE1 conversation.
Cameron has failed to reach 500 yards in each of the past two seasons. He’s also failed to score more than three touchdowns during that time, including in his first season in Miami in 2015. Miami was a team in flux last season with a midseason coaching change, but Cameron will still have to compete for targets. At best, it seems he will be the 3rd most targeted option behind Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker. That leaves a small window for fantasy success.
We have Cameron projected as a low end TE2 entering 2016. In leagues with 15 or 16 roster spots, he’s going undrafted, which is justifiable. He’s still somebody to keep an eye on though in the early season.
