Former Broncos and Eagles S Brian Dawkins announced his retirement.
Dawkins says he's 100 percent recovered from last year's neck injury, but his odds of returning for a fourth season in Denver took a hit after the Broncos signed FS Mike Adams. Dawkins remained an effective player last season, but was increasingly limited by injuries, missing a combined seven games. A nine-time Pro Bowler, he was named a first-team All Pro four times, and was a second-team All Pro as recently as 2009. He spent his first 12 seasons in Philadelphia, and will retire as an Eagle after 37 interceptions, 26 sacks and 1,169 tackles compiled across 224 career games. A media favorite, Dawkins is likely Canton bound. Mon, Apr 23, 2012 10:03:00 AM
