Brian Dawkins has retired from the NFL. For 16 seasons, the safety absolutely destroyed everything in his path. Dawkins spent 13 years with the Philadelphia Eagles before finishing his career in Denver.
'I would like to thank the Eagles & the Broncos 4 believing in me,'' he tweeted. ''I would like 2 thank all my teammates & coaches that I have been blessed 2 go to battle with. Along with u, the fans 4 helping make my career 1 that I have enjoyed tremendously. In other words. I am announcing my retirement from the NFL.''
Dawkins was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection who earned the name “Weapon X,” which is incredibly badass.
Here are some bone-crunching highlights from his career.
