Browns Mistakenly Call Wrong Player After Draft


USC tight-end Jordan Cameron was one of the players taken by the Cleveland Browns during last weekend's NFL draft.

There's also a player named Cameron Jordan, who was drafted by the New Orleans Saints with the 24th pick. The Browns, in trying to get in touch with Mr. Cameron afterward, called Mr. Jordan by mistake. Whoopsies.

SI's Peter King with the minor mishap details:

When Cal defensive end Cameron Jordan was taking a tour through his new business home — the New Orleans Saints practice facility in Metairie, La. —on Saturday, his cell phone rang.

"Hi,'' said the voice on the other end. "Jordan? This is the Cleveland Browns ... '' The call was for some biographical information.

"Uh, yeah, this is Cameron Jordan,'' he said. "But the Saints already picked me.''

There was an awkward pause, and Cameron Jordan said: "I think you mean Jordan Cameron, you're looking for Jordan Cameron. That's not me.''

After the jump, video of Clippers' dunkasaurus Blake Griffin hyping Mr. Cameron, just because.
