Cameron was a quarterback at Acadia University. He won the Hec Crighton Trophy (most outstanding college football player in Canada). Cameron was drafted by the Edmonton Eskimos in the first round of the 1977 College Draft. He was converted to a punter with the Blue Bombers.

Bob Cameron remains the CFL's all-time leading punter with 134,301 regular season punting yards. He was a CFL all-star 4 times, a divisional all-star 6 times, and helped the Bombers to three Grey Cup victories. In the 1988 Grey Cup Cameron was named the game's Most Valuable Canadian for his effective punting in windy conditions. Cameron is also considered the CFL's "iron man" by setting the record for consecutive games played with 353 in a row. In 2005, he was named one of the Blue Bombers 20 All-Time Greats. He was elected into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2010 and the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 2011.
