Report: Browns kicker Phil Dawson accepts franchise tender

According to a report by The Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot, Phil Dawson has accepted his franchise tender offer of $3.8 million dollars-

“#Browns kicker Phil Dawson has accepted his franchise tag, a league source tells the Plain Dealer. About $3.8 million.”

Franchised players receive a contract worth the average of the top five players at their position, but because Dawson was also tagged last year, he is entitled to 120% of that number, thus his deal is worth slightly more than the other four kickers who received the tag.

    They must have brainwashed poor Phil honestly but at least they’ll spend on someone who can score.
