After reports circulated that the New Orleans Saints were attempting to use Jimmy Graham’s bio against him in his franchise tag grievance, players such as Cameron are trying to relabel themselves as wide receivers.
Cameron now lists himself as a “Pro Bowl pass catcher for the Browns.” The word missing there is tight end and for good reason. Graham could have made over $12 million had he been franchised as a wide receiver but instead will make just over $7 million.
Thought no one would notice that minor change in the bio. Thanks @darrenrovell for calling me out.

Next year Cameron will be facing the same situation. He caught 80 passes for 917 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013. With Josh Gordon unlikely to be around for a full season the Browns will again be targeting Cameron in their passing game.
