Phil Dawson has been a Cleveland Brown since joining the NFL in 1999 and sad part of that story is Phil Dawson has been a Cleveland Brown since 1999!
Dawson had a great game on Sunday as he led the Browns by going 5-5 from Field Goal range. Unfortunately, that was all the points the Browns could muster as they fell to the Ravens 25-15. What’s more impressive is Dawson is at 100% for the season by going 17-17. He has had a great career since being undrafted out of Texas and joining the Browns as a free agent. He is a career 84% kicker for a team that hasn’t done much. He scored the first points on the Browns return to Cleveland in 1999 and has been one of their few bright spots since the return. Dawson has yet to be a Pro Bowler but has had a season in which he kicked 27-29 Fg’s! Maybe this year can be his shining moment! StraitPinkie salutes Awesome Phil Dawson as he got Vanderjacked this weekend!
This is Dawson’s first Vanderjacked Award and if he keeps up this pace he may be vying for the year end honor all kickers want on their electronic mantle!
