Eagles fans bid a fond and grateful farewell to All-Pro Brian Dawkins last week at his retirement ceremony at the Linc.
Surrounded by his family, "Wolverine" whose contract with the Eagles was not renewed in 2008, still expressed that he was still an Eagle at heart, even after playing three seasons with the Denver Broncos.
"I wanted to go out and do my best. ...I will always be an Eagle in my heart and I will always look to represent this organization and (the fans) to the best of my abilities every day."
