Report: Broncos Interested in TE Jordan Cameron

Coming on the heels of reports that Julius Thomas would be taking his talents to Jacksonville and playing with the Jaguars, there came a report that the Broncos might have a replacement option already in mind for their starting tight end position.

It makes all the sense in the world for the Broncos to pursue Cameron, who was a former Pro Bowler with the Cleveland Browns in 2013.

Cameron, like Thomas, has struggled with injuries in his career, including some concerns over concussions, which could affect his value on the free agent market.

It hasn’t slowed teams down from talking to his agent, apparently, as Cameron is drawing all kinds of interest. John Elway has always said the team uses this time to feel out the market, and that’s exactly what they’ll do. The market will be set for top level tight ends like Julius Thomas and Jordan Cameron, as well as guys like Charles Clay who could receive upwards of $7 million annually.

The Broncos simply don’t want to pay that kind of premium for a tight end, but if they could get a guy like Cameron for 5 or $6 million per season, you might be on to something.

Elway and company are not handcuffed by the current cap situation in Denver, but they have to be very strategic about their spending on this year’s market, and getting a guy like Cameron could prove to be too costly if in fact his price tag is in the $7 million per year range.

That could change over the next couple of days, however, but if Sunday is any indication, there is plenty of money to be thrown at these players and we haven’t even really gotten started yet.
