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.

I started reassembly. Progress has been slow. It's so hot in FL I don't want to work in the driveway
Got the new cam andoil pump in. Then I timed the engine, and put the new tensioners on. All that's left is to install the rockers and put the covers on.
I'm hoping that with the upgraded oil pump and tensioners this will get me to 300k
