Heres the link for the article, but I will copy and paste the article here for everyone.
Not like any of us doubted if he will be back, but its nice to see something in writing finally.
TAMPA -- Philadelphia safety Brian Dawkins, set to become a free agent, said today he expects to return to Eagles next season.
"That's the plan," Dawkins said. "Hopefully we'll get something done really soon."
Dawkins, a six-time Pro Bowler, appeared this morning as a nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award. With Vikings center Matt Birk and Cardinals QB Kurt Warner, represented by his wife Brenda, the candidates met with Payton's family.
Dawkins said it was "painful" to appear at the Super Bowl media center, just a few feet away from the Lombardi Trophy, after his team lost to Arizona in the NFC title game.
"This very well could have been us," Dawkins said. "There's only two teams that can say that, us and Baltimore. Because we were one game away."
