The Philadelphia Eagles have made a move that's sure to go over well with the fans. Brian Dawkins has added to Philadelphia's scouting staff, according to an official announcement from the team.

Dawkins is the Eagles' inaugural recipient of the Nunn-Wooten Scouting Fellowship, which is a program introducing former players to scouting. The Eagles state that, in this role, Dawkins will "work closely with all phases of the scouting and football operations departments."

It's exciting to see that Dawkins is back in Philadelphia. It goes without saying that he's one of the best players in not only the history of the franchise but the league as well. Dawkins made the Pro Bowl nine times during his 16-year career. He certainly belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The 42-year-old Dawkins hasn't held a job in the NFL since retiring after the 2011 season. He's spent time as a media analyst since then. Now he's starting a new chapter in his career.
