According to La Canfora, the two sides have been in talks, but sources have informed him that they are not close to a deal at this point in time.
La Canfora has heard that the Browns proposal to Cameron has been in the “$5 million to-$6 million range,” which comes in below the recent contract signed by Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph, who will around $7 million per year.
Cameron has reportedly turned down numerous offers from the Browns, despite the fact that he has maintained that he would like to continue playing for the Browns.
“If I didn’t say it, it’s not true,” Cameron told Cleveland.com a few months ago. “I would love to play here. I started here, I want to finish up here. But the contract stuff is outside of here. I’ll let my agent deal with that.”
Cleveland could also use the franchise tag on Cameron next year, depending on how talks go in the coming months.
Cameron, 25, is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is scheduled to make just $645,000 for the 2014 season. He’s coming off of a break season in which he caught 80 passes for 917 yards receiving and seven touchdowns over the course of 15 games.
