Anyway...rather than go with an untested rookie or nobody the team ended up tabbing another older veteran to take over the kicking duties, Cleveland Browns kicker Phil Dawson.
''One of the storied teams in the NFL and a team that's on the verge of winning it all. ... When you start mixing all that together, even for an idiot like me it's an easy decision.''The 38-year old Dawson had a heck of a year last season missing just two of his 31 attempts, and hitting all 13 that he tried beyond 40 yards including seven from 50+.
