Browns Franchise Dawson



From Mary Kay Cabot

The Browns have franchised kicker Phil Dawson, an NFL source told the Plain Dealer today.

He’ll make an estimated $3.8 million in 2012. It’s the second straight year Dawson has been franchised. Last year, he made $3.175 million as the Browns franchise player, and was due a 120% raise with the second-year tag.

The Browns can continue to negotiate a long-term deal with Dawson, who heads into his 14th season with the Browns.

Dawson played in all 16 games last year, converting 24 of 29 field goal attempts and all 20 PATs for a team-high 92 points. He also made seven field goals of 50 yards or more, which tied for most in the NFL.

Teams are allowed to franchise only one player, meaning running back Peyton Hillis will become an unrestricted free agent on Mar. 13 unless the Browns re-sign him before then. The Browns have said they’d like to bring him back at the right price.

Randy Ward, is a die hard Browns fan that hasn't missed a game since the Browns have been back in 99. Randy bleeds Orange and Brown and can't wait for that one day, when the Browns are on top of the mountain. Go Browns and Destination Super Bowl!!!!
