The talented Mr. Jordan Cameron

As the 2014 season inches towards arriving on Sunday, the spotlight is squarely shining on Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron – in Berea, on the internet and in Hollywood.

Cameron without a doubt is the centerpiece of Cleveland’s offense this season. Touted as a can’t-miss fantasy football pick, NFL fans across the league are expecting big numbers from the 25-year-old Cameron. Members of the Dawg Pound expect the tight end to prove his Pro Bowl season in 2013 was only the beginning of a productive career.

In Monday’s open locker room, Cameron revealed he and quarterback Brian Hoyer have been getting in extra reps together during special teams drills, to ensure their timing is perfectly in sync for the Steelers game. The last time the two played on the road together in Minnesota, Cameron posted six catches for 66 yards and an astounding three touchdowns – including a soaring alley-oop for the game winner.

Cameron insists all he and the Browns needed was four preseason games to get the kinks out and finally get the wheels rolling in motion together.

“I’ve gotten a lot more comfortable,” said Cameron. “I’d say the last couple weeks really nailed it in. I’ve been in my book and getting the details down. It’s been an easier transition as the weeks go on.”

America will get its formal introduction to Cameron before Sunday’s contest against the Steelers. Cameron is set to appear on the hit FXX show The League on Wednesday alongside J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans and Cameron Jordan of the New Orleans Saints.

Without revealing too much, Cameron said the episode revolves around one of the main characters drafting the Browns tight end, but not being able to recognize him in person. The League films in Los Angeles close to Cameron’s offseason residence and shooting the episode lasted an entire day.

Cameron, who had never acted before, was surprised at how much improv the actors in the show use.

“They are so smart and their timing for all there jokes is perfect,” said Cameron. “I caught myself laughing more than anything. They made it real comfortable.”

Be sure to tune in Wednesday at 10 p.m. Cameron said he filmed about five or six lines, and is in the entire episode.

Hilarious Madden NFL Glitch

Browns rookie linebacker Chris Kirksey found himself at the center of the Twitter world on Monday. A user discovered not only had Madden 15, the popular NFL video game, put Kirksey on the wrong team (Tennessee Titans), but the game had Kirksey’s height listed as 1’2.

Kirksey, who had played the video game for years, took the glitch in good fun.
