As NFL fans we rarely hear of players willing to take paycuts. Also as fans we rarely see players with such high character as Brian Dawkins.
Dawkins came to the Broncos two seasons ago signing a five-year, worth million. The deal included .2 million in guaranteed money. In the upcoming season, Dawkins is currently scheduled to receive million.
According to the Denver Post Dawkins knows that he might just have to take a pay cut to stay with the Broncos.
“When I signed this deal I knew what it was,” Dawkins said Thursday while watching 18 of his Bronco teammates and 27 other local professionals work out with trainer Loren Landow at Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch. “It was basically a two-year deal. I knew after a couple years there was a balloon (mechanism) and we most likely would have to restructure. That’s no big deal to me.”
Brian Dawkins never ceases to amaze. With a slew of rookies and young guys ready to compete for his spot, Dawkins will have to keep amazing. I myself think he’s more the capable of the task.
What do you think Bronco fans? Will Brian Dawkins be back for another season with a decrease in pay?
