TBH I think I'd rather draft a young stud kicker coming out of college with one of our many draft picks. I kinda hope we learned our lesson about signing aging kickers in their unpredictability from one year to the next (see David Akers). Perhaps we could sign Dawson to a small contract and see how it works out as he has been solid throughout his career but then it begs a question why not start over with a young kicker and try to get away from having to evaluate the position on a yearly basis.
As far as Cribbs go, I think his best days are coming to a twilight as well with him getting a bit older however, I do think he's an upgrade to Ginn and is still capable of taking one to the house. He also would add a little more to the receiving core than Ginn so I would be okay exploring our options with him, depending on how much money he is looking for.
