Brian Dawkins Will Be A Free Agent, Could Retire

Brian Dawkins will be an unrestricted free agent in less than two weeks, but he may just be hanging up his cleats for good. Speaking to reporters at the combine yesterday, Broncos GM John Elway says he hasn't from Dawkins since the season ended and is unsure of his plans.

"I have not had a chance to talk with Brian to see what his plans are, whether he'd like to come back or not," Elway said. "Not speaking for him, I know he's probably going through a tough time -- having been a football player -- how hard it is making that decision when you're getting close to the end of your career whether you want to continue to play or not."

Dawkins missed the end the Broncos season with a neck injury. In fact, neck injuries have cost him 10 games over the past two seasons. He's previously said that if he does decide to come back, it will only be for one more year and he'd just stay in Denver.

That said, all of us here in Philly would be happy to welcome him back whether he decides to hang em up or not. Brian Dawkins should retire as an Eagle, where he belongs.
