San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Safety Brian Dawkins reportedly will not be wearing an Eagles uniform next season after signing an undisclosed contract with the Denver Broncos on Friday.
According to a report in the San Francisco Gate, the Broncos are planning a news conference on Saturday to introduce "Weapon X."
Dawkins had spent his previous 13 seasons with Philadelphia, the franchise that made him its second-round draft choice out of Clemson in 1996.
The hard-hitting safety, who will turn 36 in October of the upcoming season, has been selected to the Pro Bowl seven times in his distinguished career. He has played all 16 games in three of the past four years, including a 75- tackle, three-sack campaign in 2008.
In 183 career games, Dawkins has picked off 34 passes while compiling 21 sacks and 936 tackles.
Against Houston in 2002, Dawkins became the first player in NFL history to force a fumble, record a sack, log an interception, and catch a touchdown in the same game.
