Dolphins tight end Jordan Cameron will not play again this season and may never play again after his latest concussion.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins are ending Cameron’s season and putting him on injured reserve, and that Cameron has concerns about his long term health and will consider retiring.

The 28-year-old Cameron, who is in the final year of his contract with the Dolphins, has had four concussions in the last four seasons. He has visited with concussion specialists since suffering his latest concussion in September but has not been cleared to play.

Cameron was a 2011 fourth-round pick of the Browns and played well in Cleveland, making the Pro Bowl in 2013. He signed a two-year, $15 million contract with the Dolphins last year.

  1. Very talented TE . more like a big WR . he was never the best blocker .

    hope the best for him .

    lifelong die hard Browns fan says thank you .

  2. I wish him the best, but I’m glad he’s done wasting time they could be developing younger players in Miami. Cameron has been wasting opportunities and dropping passes nonstop since moving here.

  3. When Mark Kelso and Steve Wallace had their careers threatened due to concussions, they opted to use the PRO-CAP, an extra layer of padding added to the outside of their helmets.

    There were many player who used the device back in the late 80s and in the 90s and the NFL had no problem with them. For some reason that the NFL cannot explain to anyone’s satisfaction, Roger Goodell had the PRO-CAP outlawed from use in the NFL.

    The media refuses to confront Goodell on the bogus reason the NFL is using to keep the PRO-CAP from being used..even though it was successfully used for years.

    I blame the media for not doing their j0b to ask some common sense questions…and to refuse to accept Goodell’s canned excuse, produced by a NFL lackey DR.

    I’ve done some extensive investigation into the NFL’s test of helmets and found that the Pro-Cap was tested, (UNOFFICIALLY)…and it worked to reduce the shock of helmet to helmet contact better than anything the helmet makers produced.

    Look it up yourself…Pro-Cap…Mark Kelso, Steve Wallace and other NFL players who were at risk, due to concussions.

  4. This commissioner time has come, a new one should be the next important think for the owners to look at. His leadership is lacking god judgment in a lot of cases. Bill….Did I mention the several Wells cases of witch hunts…and the list goes on and on.

    Yes, but even that was nowhere near as good as the Gary Busey Helmet protector protector.

    Hopefully Miami will draft a TE . The last great TE Miami has had was probably Keith Jackson and that was in the 90’S

    Randy McMichael, Bruce Hardy and Troy Drayton were no sloutches. As for Cameron. Thank you for your service. I wish you the best in the future and a happy healthy life. As for the Contract… well that went the way the last 15 years has gone.
