A quiet training camp translated to a quiet preseason opener for Dolphins starting tight end Jordan Cameron.
Cameron didn’t catch a pass against the Giants in Friday’s preseason opener. But head coach Adam Gase isn’t panicking.
“I feel like what’s going on with him right now is that there’s a little bit of a learning curve for him,” Gase said of Cameron. “We went through some struggles there in the spring (and) a little bit at the beginning of camp. The thing about the tight end position is that there’s a lot of responsibility you have. You’re doing multiple phases of the game.”
Cameron caught 35 passes for 386 yards and three touchdowns in his first season with the Dolphins last year. But the goal is for Cameron to duplicate his 2013 season, when he recorded 80 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns for the Browns. Tight end Julius Thomas finished with 108 catches for 1,277 yards and 24 touchdowns over his two seasons in Gase’s offense with the Broncos, the story pointed out. Cameron is 19th on our TE list coming into this season and has a 17th round ADP.
