Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is the same type of hybrid player as Jimmy Graham. The former USC star burst onto the scene last year with 80 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns. Like Graham, Cameron often lined up as a wide receiver. Unlike Graham, Cameron does not call himself a tight end on Twitter.
After an arbitrator ruled on Wednesday that Graham is officially a tight end for franchise tag purposes, Cameron made an adjustment to his Twitter bio.
Graham wanted to be classified as a wide receiver so he could make more than $12 million with the franchise tag rather than the roughly $7 million he stands to make as a tight end. In arguing that he is a tight end, the New Orleans Saints pointed to the fact that Graham even calls himself a tight end in his Twitter bio.
Cameron obviously doesn’t want Twitter being used against him if a similar situation arises. He sarcastically thanked Darren Rovell for blowing up his spot.
Thought no one would notice that minor change in the bio. Thanks @darrenrovell for calling me out.

Now, the Browns can argue that Cameron changed his profile intentionally after seeing the Graham ruling. Thanks a lot, Rovell.
