5.4 camshaft

Hey guys, my motor smoked the camshaft. A roller follower went bad and wasted one lobe on the cam. I'm about to remove the cam and replace the oil pump, tensioners, follower and camshaft.

My question is....
can I have the camshaft polished? Its just rough, not chipped or melted.
or, where is the best place to get a replacement cam? its $250 at Ford or $120 for a aftermarket at Rockauto.
Also, I'm concerned with fitment of a new cam in my 106k mile head.
