Browns Kicker Phil Dawson Heads West To Join 49ers
Say goodbye Cleveland Browns kicker Phil Dawson. The Pittsburgh Steelers will not have to face the accurate kicker in 2013 unless they play the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
Dawson tweeted Tuesday that after spending the past 14 seasons with the Browns that he has signed with the 49ers.
“I am humbled & thrilled to have the opportunity to continue my career with my new team, the SF 49ers!” Dawson posted on Twitter.
Dawson converted 93.5 percent of his field-goal attempts (29 of 31) in 2012, which finished as the second-best mark in the league.
Dawson has 15 game-winning kicks to his credit with two coming against the Steelers in 1999 and 2000. According to Pro Football Reference, Dawson has made 30 career field goals against the Steelers during his time with the Browns.
