Brian Dawkins is a Bronco?

It's now official (?). Brian Dawkins has signed with the Denver Broncos. The Eagles were too cheap to offer a multi-year deal to a guy that has given everything he had to the team so he left town. Yet another Philly legend will end his career in another place. Good luck, B-Dawk, and thanks for everything you have done for the Birds. You were the heart and soul of the defense and you truly bled Eagles green.

In other news, the Eagles will now start Quintin Demps at free safety.

Update: Not so fast! There are a ton of conflicting reports out there about whether Dawkins has actually signed with the Broncos. The original story came from the San Francisco Chronicle (why would they be the one breaking it?), but Adam Schefter of the NFL Network reports that no deal has been signed and that Dawkins hasn't even landed in Denver yet. Stay tuned, B-Dawk may not be a Bronco. Yet.

Update #2: Well, now it's official. Dawkins is a Bronco.

I know it sounds nutz but if anyone deserved 100 million dollars it should be BRIAN DAWKINS! He was the heart and soul of the eagles organization and it is a damn shame that the Eagles were to cheap to keep him. THANX FOR EVERYTHING DAWKINS! YOU R IN A CLASS ALL YOUR OWN!

It's pathetic that with all the cap room the Eagles have, they couldn't give a little extra money to a guy who was so good to this organization and such a great leader on and off the field. GET RID OF ANDY REID!!!!!

This is definitely NOT OFFICIAL YET. The Broncos have signed 5 other players today and they are all confirmed, but not Dawk...yet.

I agree. Nothing official yet. Expect he'll still be an Eagle at the end of the day.

My heart is broken and it bleeds EAGLES green!!! Not resigning Dawkins is the biggest black eye to the organizations reputation since the Santa-Snowball incident. The man litteraly and figuratively broke his neck for the birds and he gets dumped on!!!! Best of luck in the mile high city Dawk hopefully you will able to retire in EAGLES green like we all envisioned you doing...you will be missed by those of us who got hyped up with you every Sunday for so many years.

it sucks when a player like dawkins gives everything he has to a team for 13 years and the team can`t give a little back.

All of you people are retarded B-Dawk isnt going anywhere. he's looking at what teams will offer him deals on the west coast. Yet it is tru tht Buckhaulter is going to the Broncos. Also "white-boy" Constidine is leaveing for the Jags. The only acquisition for the birds right now is Stacy Andrews, OT from Cin. and yes hes Sean Andrews brother

if brian dawkins leaves the eagles, the heart and soul of the team is gone. he was the ONLY one who tried to fire up the eagles during games. if brian dawkins leaves the eagles and goes to the broncos, well then, i guess i become a broncos fan.

The only thing that made it bearable to watch the crap play by Donovan and the big guy Reed making ridiculous calls, was Dawkins on defense. Dawk is perhaps the best player to ever play for the Eagles.

What a bunch of idiots to let him go.

All I can say is that it does not surprise me. The Eagles Management are a bunch of losers.

Denver, I hope you guys stay hot (3-0!!!) and finish 15-1, with the only loss being to the Eagles. I have tickets to the Den/Phi game, and I hope I get to talk to Brian before the game and maybe get my #20 jersey signed. Luv ya BDAWK!!!!! You're in our hearts always here in Philly. Broncos fans, enjoy him.
