Third-year tight end Jordan Cameron will reportedly be the starting tight end within Norv Turner’s offense for the Cleveland Browns in 2013. Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports that Cameron, 24, appears locked in at the starting spot with the recently signed (the gargantuan) Kellen Davis and Gary Barnidge merely providing depth. This is all on the heals of the recent departing of veteran tight end Benjamin Watson who missed just three games in his three-year stint with the team. In two seasons with the Browns, the 6-foot-5-inch Cameron has 26 receptions for 259 yards and a touch-down. The former fourth-round pick was praised by head coach Rob Chudzinski in February, praising his skill set in what will be — if history is any indication — a tight end-heavy offense. Cameron’s starting role will not have been for lack of an attempted upgrade on behalf of his employer. Once in the running for former Redksins tight end Fred Davis, the Browns appear to have taken their name out of the hat. The team had also been linked to former first-round pick Kellen Winslow Jr, but the team quickly squashed any rumors that the former malcontent would be returning to his old stomping 1 grounds. Not owning a second-round pick in the upcoming draft, it is difficult to envision a clear upgrade being acquired heading into the 2013 regular season.
