Denver Broncos Sign Brian Dawkins

By Wyatt Earp | February 28, 2009

dawkinsIn my opinion, the Philadelphia Eagles should be ashamed of themselves. This is how they treat the heart and soul of their team?


Of course, since I am a Denver Broncos fan, I wholeheartedly rejoice in this signing. Dawkins has a few good years left, and he is going to look fantastic in the orange and blue.

Lord knows our defense could use the help.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos have signed seven-time Pro Bowl safety Brian Dawkins, who spent his entire 13-year career with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Although Dawkins turns 36 next season and is clearly on the downside of his career, he brings a hard-hitting style and leadership qualities coveted by new Broncos coach Josh McDaniels.

McDaniels, the New England Patriots offensive coordinator before he was hired to replace Mike Shanahan in Denver, envisions his new veteran safety playing a role similar to what Rodney Harrison had in New England in recent seasons.

Dawkins figures he has at least a couple more good seasons in him. He started all 16 games last season for the third time in four years and recorded 75 tackles, three sacks, six forced fumbles and an interception. (H/T – !)

Welcome to Denver, B-Dawk!

    I don’t usually get “sad” about a player moving on, as they get traded and they sign elsewhere because of the business end of things. However, I will be very sad to see Dawkins go. The Eagles are idiots and proved it quite well this week.

    I hope he does well and experiences a great amount of success in the remainder of his career. He deserves only good things.

    The team has definitely lost its heart. We will soon be reliving the Kotite era. Yippeeeeee! /snark.

    RT – It’s a shame because he can still play, and because he deserved to be offered a decent salary package after 13 years of service. He is a 7-time Pro Bowler, for cripes’ sake!

    I look good in orange….just saying.

    The past few seasons the only reason I even watched the games was to watch him play.

    This is why Philly will NEVER be a City of Champions. On the same day the World Champion Phillies man up and admit to a mistake (Adam Eaton) and jettison him, the Eagles let go of the REAL leadership of the team.

    Sigh,…hopefully the Flyers and Phantoms will do us proud.
