In 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!
