I’d like to [finish my career in Cleveland]. I really would. I’m not thinking about my career being over at this point, but it just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to go play somewhere else. So, we’ll see what happens. I’ve told you guys before I’m not very good at predicting the future, but I’m just going to go to work like I always do and hope that things get worked out.

- Cleveland Browns placekicker Phil Dawson, Tuesday, following his first workout with the team since the end of the 2011 season. He remains the lone member of the Browns to have been in Cleveland since the team returned in 1999. Believing he had played his final game with the Browns in 2010, the now-37-year old said his goodbyes and sold his home in the Cleveland area before the team surprised him by using its franchise tag on him for the first time.
