After four concussions in the past four years, it appears veteran tight end Jordan Cameron’s career is finished at age 28.

Cameron will retire this offseason, according to CBS’ 24/7 Sports, ending a six-year run. He played the past two years for the Dolphins, but he went on Injured Reserve last season after suffering a concussion in Week 3.

He had a disappointing stint in Miami with 43 catches for 446 yards and four touchdowns in 19 games. He went into this offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and it was highly unlikely the Dolphins would bring him back. Coach Adam Gase said last week Cameron hadn’t told him whether he planned to continue playing.

Miami finalized a trade for tight end Julius Thomas and signed Anthony Fasano on Thursday.

Cameron came into the league with Cleveland as a fourth-round pick in 2011 and made it to the Pro Bowl two years later. In four years with the Browns, he put up 1,600 yards and 10 touchdowns on 130 catches.

Cameron made $15.9 million over his career, including $12.6 million with the Dolphins.
