Dawkins is an enforcer. Still a hard hitter. Not as good in coverage as he used to be, but a solid performer there. Most of all he's a leader and his defense rallies around his enthusiasm and intensity off the field. He's humble, he gives back to the community, and he's a hell of a teacher for young players. A good acquisition, though certainly past his prime.
None of these guys are going to upgrade the Broncos significantly.
1. He missed TC last year due to family issues and had nagging injuries all year.
2. He just had a season with this stat line...
75 tackles, 6 passes defensed, 1 INT, 6 FF, 3 sacks.
3. Here's a thought. Actually watch an Eagles game and see how Dawkins impacted the defense, mmk?
4. I'm going to go kill myself if I read one more Dawkins/Broncos thread.
Anyone who says Brian Dawkins is not an elite Safety in the NFL needs to actually watch Eagles games. The dude is incredible. He will be the Heart and Soul of the Broncos Defense. 5 years/17 Million is a STEAL!
