Phil Dawson will change his number for 2016 season

Mar 28, 2016 at 11:33 AM--


San Francisco 49ers kicker Phil Dawson announced today that he will be wearing a new number for the 2016 season. He wore number 9 since signing with the 49ers in 2013. Dawson will wear the number 4 during the upcoming season.


Dawson wore the number during college and during his 14 seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He was forced to wear a different number when he joined the 49ers because punter Andy Lee was wearing the number 4.

After becoming an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year earlier this month, Dawson signed a one-year deal to return to the 49ers.


Dawson, who turned 41 in January, is getting ready to enter his 18th season in the NFL. He converted 24 of 27 field goals in 2015 and has an 85.4 percent career completion percentage. Prior to coming to San Francisco, Dawson made the Pro Bowl in 2012.

Raheem Mostert is the Miami Dolphins' leading rusher this season, and the running back may have some beef with his former team when he faces the San Francisco 49ers next weekend.

In the last year of his deal, it was a decision he felt was best for his NFL future. Apparently, the Niners weren't pleased with the decision. "Mostert weighed all pros and all cons when he decided to sit out the season," wrote Tyler Dunne of Go Long. "He knew how much he was risking - the decision absolutely pissed the 49ers off - but he also knew how hard he would work." The 49ers initially



With Elijah Mitchell out, 49ers RB Jordan Mason will get his chance to shine

Since the beginning of the offseason, San Francisco 49ers running back Jordan Mason has made the most of his opportunities, earning praise for his hard-nosed, physical running style that embodied an NFL player. However, due to a variety of circumstances, Mason has yet to see significant NFL action. After Elijah Mitchell suffered a sprained MCL in Week 1, Mason could've seen opportunities behind Jeff Wilson in San Francisco's running back rotation, given his performance in the offseason and style of play. But, the 49ers opted for a different direction, utilizing Wilson as a bell-cow back, significantly decreasing the team's efficiency on the ground, before involving veteran Tevin Coleman, who had a short stint on the active
