CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

 

Due to the recent ruling on Wednesday by NFL arbitrator Stephen Burbank regarding Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints, the star has been deemed a tight end, not a wide receiver, for franchise tag purposes. 

"We will advise Graham of his options and carefully determine next steps in this matter. We will also continue to assist Graham and his representation as necessary to help the player reach a fair long-term deal with the New Orleans Saints," the NFL Players Association said in a statement.

Cleveland Browns tight end responded quickly to this news and immediately changed his Twitter account to read " Pro Bowl pass catcher for the Cleveland Browns." where it previously had read " Pro Bowl TE for the Browns." 

Cameron caught 80 passes last year for the Browns and has the chance to be targeted just as often, without the possibility that Josh Gordon wont be congesting the stat line this year with the pending drug tests ruling still in the air. 

With Cameron entering the final year of his rookie contract, he is hitting the market in time to cash in reasonably.
