Preseason starts tonight, so figured it was time for a new thread. Hope the Bears can continue their winning ways from last year. (Y)

Browns K Phil Dawson announces his retirement

K Phil Dawson has announced his retirement from the NFL. He will sign a contract to retire as a Cleveland Brown.

“To have the opportunity to come back home and retire with the organization and the city that I love is incredibly meaningful to me,” said Dawson. “It only seems right to have the opportunity to do this with the fans that have been so good to me and my family.”

“We are thrilled that Phil Dawson wanted to come back and retire as a Cleveland Brown,” said Dee and Jimmy Haslam. “He epitomizes the characteristics that we look for in our players – hardworking, professional, consistent and he was a pillar in the community. He is a great example for all current and future Browns.”

Dawson appeared in 305 career regular season games during his 21 NFL seasons from 1998-2018. He ranks among the all-time NFL leaders in games played (seventh with 305), field goals made (eighth with 441), points scored (11th with 1,847) and field goal percentage (16th with 83.8).

Originally signed by the Browns in 1999, Dawson won the placekicking job during training camp and remained with the team through the 2012 season. He holds team records for most career field goals (305), highest career field goal percentage (84.0), most field goals in a season (30 in 2008), highest field goal percentage in a season (93.5 in 2012), field goals in a game (six on Nov. 5, 2006), most consecutive field goals made (29) and most consecutive games with a field goal (23). He scored 1,271 points with Cleveland, the second most by a Brown, and his 215 games are the third-most by a Browns player. In 2012, Dawson became the only Browns kicker selected to the Pro Bowl (Lou Groza was selected as a tackle).

A perennial team captain, Dawson also made a major impact in the Cleveland community. He teamed up with the Adoption Network to invite families who recently adopted children to each home game from 2008-12, so they could form new memories as a family. He was voted the 2012 Browns Player of the Year by the local PFWA chapter, the 2007 Dino Lucarelli “Good Guy” Award honoree by the PFWA, the 2006 Ed Block Courage Award winner by his teammates and the 2006 winner of the Doug Dieken Humanitarian Award for his charitable and community efforts.

Dawson, who played collegiately at the University of Texas, also played for San Francisco (2013-16) and Arizona (2017-18).

Just a quick update on the Giants receiving core after trading OBJ to Cleveland for a bag of chips:

Sterling Shepard - Fractured thumb, likely to miss week 1
Corey Coleman - Torn ACL, out for the season
Golden Tate - 4 game suspension from violating the PED policy

Saquon about to carry that team all the way to 4-12! :lol

(it's okay though cause my Redskins will be right there with them :))

Lions could have a sneaky good (and deep) d-line this year if everyone can stay healthy.

Trey Flowers (21 sacks in 3 years with the Pats)
Da'Shawn Hand (PFF's 2nd highest ranked defensive rookie last year)
Mike Daniels (freshly signed after the Pack surprisingly cut him)
Damon 'Snacks' Harrison (PFF's #1 ranked interior run stopper)
A'Shawn Robinson (Another VERY highly rated guy by PPF on the defensive interior)
Austin Bryant (4th round pick from that star studded Clemson d-line who had 16.5 sacks in 2 years as a starter)

Sounds like the Samchise is killing it in camp. What do you make of the Ryan Kalil signing? I’ve been waiting for us to upgrade the Center position all offseason, hopefully he’s the answer...
Yup. Been lights out and apparently showing great control of the offence. Bell has impressed too and will be a huge help for Darnold.

I was shitting bricks about the Centre position getting Sam killed so delighted about Kalil. Even if he's half the player he was he'll walk into the team. Great locker room presence too.

I'm more psyched for this season than I've been in years. Which means heartbreak is coming but for now I believe.

Still thinking we win 7-8 games. Mainly because I’m still concerned about our edge rush and lack of CB’s, but also because I’m naturally pessimistic after 33+ years of following the Jets...

Cardinals brought in Michael Crabtree for a workout and offered him a contract but... he turned it down. :lol Apparently it was only for 1 year and $2.5 million with another $2 million in incentives. Can't really see how he's gonna get more than that tbh cause he's washed, but it would've been a cool story to see him reunited with Kliff Kingsbury.

Packers season:

Matt Lafeur and Aaron Rodgers will continue to fight over whether or not Rodgers gets to call audibles. This will lead to Aaron undermining Lafeur's play calling and forcing nearly every pass to Davante Adams because the other receivers haven't earned his "trust". The defense will show glimpses of promise, but ultimately be a disappointment. Kevin King will miss an extended period of time while injured. Special teams will continue to suck and people will wonder why Mason Crosby still has a job. This will all happen on the road to being 8-8 (best case scenario) and finishing 3rd in the division.

AFC EAST

New England 13-3
Buffalo 7-9
N.Y Jets 7-9
Miami 3-13

Even with Gronk’s retirement, there’s no reason to expect anything other than a Patriots stroll here. The Jets have made some promising acquisitions, and should see Sam Darnold take the next step, but are weak in several key areas. Buffalo could surprise a few people, but Josh Allen will hold them back. Miami will contend for the 2020 #1 pick, whether they do it deliberately or not.

AFC NORTH

Pittsburgh 11-5
Cleveland 10-6
Baltimore 9-7
Cincinnati 6-10

Probably the toughest division to predict this year. Not fully buying the Browns hype, but I do think they’ll make the Playoffs. Despite losing Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, I think the Steelers will bounce back to take the division. Baltimore could be anything this year, and should at least be fun to watch, but I don’t think they have enough in the passing game to challenge for a Playoff place. Cincinnati are a team going absolutely nowhere.

AFC SOUTH

Houston 11-5
Indianapolis 8-8
Jacksonville 6-10
Tennessee 5-11

Houston’s division to lose after Andrew Luck’s shock retirement, though Lamar Miller’s season ending knee injury will obviously set them back. Nick Foles gives Jacksonville some much needed legitimacy at QB, but I’m not expecting it to make much of a difference (if any) in the wins column. Tennessee were probably the worst 9-7 team in living memory last season, think they will fall away substantially this year.

AFC WEST

Kansas City 12-4
L.A Chargers 11-5
Oakland 6-10
Denver 5-11

It’ll be hard for the Chiefs to match last year’s Offensive output, and there remain several question marks Defensively, but they should still have enough to pip the Chargers for the Division title. Oakland should show signs of improvement, but are some way away from contending for a Playoff berth. Denver should be solid Defensively, but their Offense won’t cause many sleepless nights for opposing teams.

NFC EAST

Philadelphia 11-5
Dallas 9-7
Washington 5-11
N.Y Giants 5-11

Providing they can keep Carson Wentz upright, the Eagles should be the class of this division by a distance. The ongoing Ezekiel Elliott certainly doesn’t help Dallas, but even assuming he’s back by Week 1, a Wild Card is the best they can realistically hope for. It’s a coin toss for who finishes in the basement out of the Giants and the Redskins.

NFC NORTH

Minnesota 10-6
Chicago 9-7
Green Bay 8-8
Detroit 5-11

A slight surprise maybe, but I think the Vikings edge the division. Expecting some regression from the Bears, while Green Bay still look short of playmakers Offensively. Detroit are a lock for last place.

NFC SOUTH

New Orleans 13-3
Atlanta 11-5
Carolina 8-8
Tampa Bay 3-13

The Saints are the class of the NFC imo, and barring injuries or Drew Brees regressing, they should win the division with something to spare. Atlanta could be a dark horse in the Playoffs if they can find some improvement Defensively (especially from the pass rush). Carolina made some impressive additions Defensively, and it wouldn’t be a shock to see them push for a Playoff place, but I expect them to fall short. Tampa Bay will probably be Miami’s main rival for the 2020 #1 pick.

NFC WEST

L.A Rams 11-5
Seattle 9-7
San Francisco 5-11
Arizona 4-12

Despite the concerns over Todd Gurley’s knee, and their historically inept performance in last season’s Super Bowl, it’s hard to see the Rams failing to win the division again this time round. Seattle have lost some key personnel, but Russell Wilson and their notoriously tough HFA should see them challenge for a Wild Card. San Francisco could push them if they can get a full season out of Jimmy Garoppolo and he turns out to be as good as they think, but they have question marks in several positions. Arizona have had a solid offseason overall, but I have major concerns over how effective Kyler Murray can be in the NFL.

Dak reportedly wants 40 million a year... what is he smoking to listen to such bad advice? But saying that, as an impartial and unbiased observer: sign it Jerry!

I'd be down but only if money is right. $100 a head isn't bad.

I swear, I can't read or say Crabtree's name without doing it in Richard Sherman's voice.

Oh, we're doing it intentionally. My Dolphins are tanking, and while we will certainly be awful, I'm glad that there's actually a plan and direction for the franchise. They've dumped virtually every contract possible other than a few promising young guys that fit the long-term scheme. It'll be painful watching them get murdered most weeks, but it's still better than finishing 8-8 every year with absolutely no hope of breaking out.

Jet fan here (unfortunately), Dolphins are tanking for Tua. They may not get to 3 win honestly. Right now, I have them as the worst team in the league. Realistically for me I can see the Jets topping at 9 wins or winning as few as 5. I don't see New England winning 13 though. That's a bit much. Oh, and fuck Buffalo.

Think you’re about right with our season, we look extremely weak at CB and have done little to improve the OL other than the Osemele signing.
