The Dolphins have restructured tight end Jordan Cameron’s contract, freeing up more cap space after previously reworking Ndamukong Suh and Koa Misi’s deals.
Terms of the restructuring have not been made known as of yet, but Alex Marvez of Fox Sports is reporting that Cameron gave up $1.5 million of the $7.5 million he was due to make.
Cameron was entering the final year of a two-year deal worth $15 million, with a cap hit of $9.5 million for 2016.READ MORE: Florida Manatee Deaths Rise As Pollutants Kill Seagrass
New Dolphins head coach Adam Gase has already said that he feels Cameron is a good fit in the offense he will run, so it’s no surprise that Miami is hanging on to the 27 year old.
Last season Cameron caught just 35 passes for 386 yards and three touchdowns.
It wasn’t nearly as good of a season as what was expected of the former Pro Bowler, but that was largely due to how he was utilized by Miami’s former coaching staff.MORE NEWS: Look Up South Florida! Orionid Meteor Shower On Display This Month
With Gase now running the show, expect Cameron to be much more involved in the Dolphins passing game.
