Brian Dawkins Announces Retirement

Weapon X sent a tweet today to announce his official retirement from the NFL. The 16-year veteran played 13 seasons with the Birds and was, clearly, an integral part of a Jim Johnson defense that tortured offenses and helped propel the Eagles to four consecutive NFC championship games and one Super Bowl. If someone at the Iggles office hasn’t already started the ball rolling on retiring number 20, there’s a problem.

    Brian Dawkins – three words come to mind immediately: integrity, leadership, and character. If we all approached our jobs in the same manner that Brian approaches his, everyone would be better for it. I hope he plays a part in Philly in the future. And if not, it’s our loss. But either way, THANK YOU Brian Dawkins and GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS!!
