2014 Free agents: None.

The good: There are not a lot of positions of strength for the Browns, but this is one of them. Jordan Cameron developed into a legitimate Pro Bowl and downfield threat at tight end under Norv Turner. He figures to improve. There is a passel of backups, but Gary Barnidge, MarQueis Gray et al fill the roles well. The Browns really do not need to think about doing a lot to this spot other than perhaps finding a better blocking tight end for short yardage situations.

The bad: Cameron blossomed under Turner and in a system that benefits tight ends. Turner now is in Minnesota, where he is the offensive coordinator for the Vikings. How the new coach uses the tight ends or what his offensive system will be remains a guess.

The money: No significant financial decisions here. Any moves would be made on talent and depth.

Draft priority: Not high. Cameron is an excellent player who should be able to contribute for several years -- provided the Browns sign him before he becomes a free agent after the 2014 season.
