Denver safety Brian Dawkins told the Denver Post it will be the Broncos or nothing in 2012. Dawkins, 38, hasn’t decided if he will retire or not. But if he does play one more season, Dawkins said it will be with the Broncos.
Dawkins has played the past three seasons with Denver and he is the team’s unquestioned leader. Dawkins said he will discuss his future with the Broncos soon.
He missed all but one quarter in the team’s final five games because of a neck injury. I could see a scenario where the Broncos would want Dawkins back in a limited role for one more season if he wants to play.
