Mar 9, 2017 at 1:16 PM--


Former San Francisco 49ers kicker Phil Dawson is staying in the NFC West. The free agent kicker will be signing with the Arizona Cardinals, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.


Dawson, who turned 42 in January and is the NFL's second-oldest player, has been with the 49ers since 2013. In March of 2016, the 49ers kicker returned to the team on a one-year contract worth $3.134 million in total salary.

Dawson is getting ready to enter his 19th season in the NFL. He converted 18 of 21 field goals in 2016 with his longest of the year from 53 yards away. Dawson has an 84.5 percent career completion percentage. Prior to coming to San Francisco, he spent 14 seasons with the Cleveland Browns, making the Pro Bowl in 2012.

On November 20, Dawson kicked his 400th career field goal in a home loss to the New England Patriots. He finished the 2016 season with 404 career field goals which ranks 10th all-time. Dawson ranks third among active kickers for most all-time field goals, behind just Adam Vinatieri (530) of the Indianapolis Colts and Sebastian Janikowski (414) of the Oakland Raiders.

With the free-agency frenzy long gone and the NFL Draft behind us, NFL teams will move toward tweaking their rosters in preparation for the 2022 season. It's worth noting that there are still some well-known free agents awaiting offers—names like Jadeveon Clowney and Odell Beckham Jr. Veteran center J.C. Tretter might make sense for the San Francisco 49ers. The team is uncertain about the future of Alex Mack. General manager John Lynch is sounding less confident about the possibility of his starting center returning for his 14th NFL season.

When we last saw them, the San Francisco 49ers were leaving the field after a devastating loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. The 49ers made a lot of moves during free agency. Some were positive, like adding a starting cornerback in Charvarius Ward. Some were negative, like not bringing back players D.J. Jones and Laken Tomlinson. But the team has added a large draft class, as well as a large group of undrafted free agents. The 49ers have also experienced changes to the coaching staff, front office, and scouting departments.
