CLEVELAND, OH - SEPTEMBER 29: Tight end Jordan Cameron

The Cleveland Browns have performed beyond expectations this season since an 0-2 start and currently sit at 3-4, but a fire sale is possible with the trade deadline looming, and there is a growing belief that stud tight end Jordan Cameron could be available.

According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal via CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the Browns may be willing to listen to offers for Cameron in addition to wide receiver Josh Gordon.

Many thought that the Browns had given up on the season when they traded running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts for a first-round pick prior to Week 3, but Cleveland has been better since that trade, and Richardson has been a flop in Indy thus far.

Due to the success of that trade, another big one is certainly possible. Cleveland has a lot of question marks at the quarterback position, as Jason Campbell will start in place of Brandon Weeden this week, and the Browns likely won't go anywhere until that is solved.   

With that said, there are a number of potential franchise quarterbacks that could be available in the 2014 draft, including Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota, Johnny Manziel, Tajh Boyd and Brett Hundley among others. With that in mind, the Browns can potentially turn things around quite quickly.

Cameron would be an ideal weapon for a young quarterback due to his size and athleticism. He is second among NFL tight ends in receiving yardage this season with 515 yards, and he is also tied for second in touchdowns catches with six.

Since Cameron is signed through next season at just $645,000, it's somewhat difficult to imagine the Browns moving him. Cameron could command a great offer on the open market, though, so it would be wise for Cleveland to at least gauge how much interest there is in him.
