When I first saw that the Browns picked this guy up, I saw a blurb stating "he had 73 tackles (28 solo, 45 assisted) along with a team-leading 17 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks last season".

So I immediately thought "Why the frack did the Bears release this guy?"

Then I saw that last season was with Old Dominion.

Are we potentially on the verge of setting a record for the number of rookies starting on an NFL team?

That under 4 1/2 wins in Vegas is starting to look REAL GOOD....yikes.

Pretty good article on him by Grossi today:

http://espncleveland.com/common/more.php?m=49&post_id=3681

The Bears waived Cameron because they had a surplus at defensive tackle and they needed a body at another position. These are the teams that claimed Cameron: Browns, Eagles, Lions, Texans, Giants. (All but the Browns are legitimate playoff contenders.)

Cameron went undrafted out of Old Dominion because a hamstring injury suffered while training for the NFL combine accounted for a horrendous 40 time of 5.38. After the draft, he was immediately courted by nine teams. The Browns, having used draft picks already on John Hughes and Billy Winn, were not one of them.

Of all the players eligible for the NFL draft, Cameron was the only player who already possessed bachelor’s and master’s degrees. His MBA is in information technology.

“He built a computer from scratch when he was 10 years old,” Cabott said.

Cameron, who is from Long Island, N.Y., enrolled at nearby Hofstra University. After playing two years there, Hofstra disbanded its football program. Cameron transferred to Old Dominion, which had restarted its program at the former Division I-AA level after a 69-year absence.

After Cameron committed to Old Dominion, he received a full scholarship offer from Boston College, which competes in the top division of college football. Media attention in the Big East can further a prospect's NFL draft status. Cameron turned down BC as a matter of principal – he made a commitment to ODU and he was honoring it.

“I went there because I thought I could help build something special,” Cameron said.

After going 17-5 in Cameron’s two seasons, ODU has moved to the more challenging Conference USA.


“As I learn and grow within this team, even though I have a lot to learn, I feel over time I can eventually make an impact,” he said. “One thing great about Cleveland -- we’re a young team. We’re all competitive. It’s not like everybody’s entrenched here for the past 5-10 years. Everyone’s young and wants to make a difference. Everyone wants to turn Cleveland around.”
