K Phil Dawson

I still think we're targeting one of the top kickers in the draft. This is only a one year deal.

I love the move.

How are you not working in the nfl
Instead of using a 5th round pick on a kicker Baalke signed a very good kicker in Dawson and we'll use that 5th round pick as part of a package to move up in early rounds.
So wait, we sign not only the best kicker on the market but also one of the best in the league last year, and people are complaining?

Amazing.

I'm afraid Dawson is going to fall down and break his hip or something. The dude is old.

He's been asked to interview many times, but he complains about the time being too early, the flight too long, and the money not being enough for his considerable skill
Welcome aboard Phil !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL yup totally agree. But this is Niner Talk

Guy is a great signing. We comp[lained about Akers all season and when we sign the best kicker last year everyone complains. The guy is not going anywhere. He played for Seely while in Cleveland. I have to admire a kicker that asks for permission to go to the stick when the weather is bad to kick, so he knows how to approach it when the games start. I never heard of that before by a kicker.

Signing Dawson also frees up a draft pick that can be packaged in a trade in the early rounds. Like I said before this is a good move. But you can't satisfy everyone

Can anyone tell me that the shortcuts GS, LNG and BLK of the table mean?

I found the posts on the Browns board very amusing. They love this guy big time and are actually saying they hope we can get him a ring since they couldn't get him one. Also some posts about him being a better kicker here because we have better weather than in Cleveland. I can't help feel sorry for them having had so many seasons of losing. Lebron ditched them now apparently the most loved kicker ever ditched them (lol). We thought we had it bad over the years those guys don't even know what it's like to see their team in a superbowl.

This. My wife's family is ALL Browns fans. Most of them are happy Dawson will have a chance at a ring now, but yeah, they don't even know what it feels like for their team to lift a Lamar Hunt trophy, much less a Lombardi. My brother in law always says it's because Cleveland's travel agent kept booking them through Denver in the '80's.

As long as his Hoveround batteries don't run out, we're good.

GS = Games Started
LNG = Longest
BLK = blocked

(I think)
