Miami Dolphins made yet another huge move on Thursday evening when they picked up former Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron.

The 26-year-old is one of the NFL's top tight ends and has bags of potential for the future. Despite having an underwhelming 2014 NFL season with the Browns, Cameron still had plenty of suitors this week after he became a free agent, and his signing for the Dolphins is quite a coup considering the competition for the 2013 Pro Bowler's signature.

Many might question why Jordan Cameron has chosen to join the Dolphins, a team that does not have the best offense in the NFL, rather than a team with a most potent offense that might have been interested in him.

For those wondering exactly that, Jordan Cameron spoke out on Thursday evening and revealed exactly why he has chosen to leave the Browns and join the Dolphins.

"He's young and he's willing to work," Cameron said of Ryan Tannehill, reported. "He puts the hours in. They were singing his praises all day today. It was definitely a big part of my decision."

Ryan Tannehill certainly has a huge amount of improvement left in him after three steady seasons with Miami. There was a lot of speculation that he would lose his job last year, but the signal caller impressed with his best statistical season to date.

But back to Cameron, and Miami's general manager feels that having the tight end on board this season will improve Tannehill even further.

"He is a young, proven Pro Bowl performer," general manager Dennis Hickey said of Cameron, "with playmaking ability that will positively impact our team."
