Eagles Legend Brian Dawkins Retires

Brian DawkinsDespite the invitation to retire as an Eagle, Brian Dawkins is still undecided on whether to accept the offer or not. It could only be interpreted that his move away from the franchise is still hurting him.

The thirty eight year old Dawkins attended the press conference at NovaCare Complex where he was repeatedly asked about his now sour relation with the Eagles.

A thirteen year old association and a break up afterward is not something that can easily put behind. “You forgive and you forget or you forgive and you still remember and it does not hurt as bad as it did at the time because you’re in the moment,” Dawkins said. “There’s always going to be pain. There’s always going to be feelings there.”

Dawkins spent thirteen seasons at Philadelphia, before making a bitter exit as a free agent, moving on to Denver. The sum offered by the Eagles supposedly wasn’t good enough and he accepted a counter offer of $17 Million for five years.
