Poll: Should TE Alex Smith Continue Seeing Reps Over Jordan Cameron?

Two games in for rookie tight end Jordan Cameron, and all that he can say for those games is that he was inactive on gameday. Instead, veteran tight end Alex Smith has seen significant playing time, especially last week when he was depended on to help block the Colts' pass-rushing defensive ends. In an article from the Akron Beacon Journal, Smith says he's thrilled with how things have gone this year:

"It definitely feels good to be back in action," Smith said Friday after practice. "That was probably one of the toughest things I had to go through last year, but I just kept working. Now I’m getting a shot again."

In reference to last year, Smith was referring to how often he was inactive on gameday. This year, Smith has essentially taken Robert Royal's spot on the roster and has a lot more upside than Royal did. But, with the investment the Browns spent in Cameron and how many rookies have already contributed this season (four starters in Phil Taylor, Jabaal Sheard, Owen Marecic, and Jason Pinkston), should Cameron be receiving some playing time over Smith?
