This year's version of the Pat Tillman Award goes to Brian Dawkins of the Broncos, who proved at age 36 that he can still play at a very high level -- a season after the Eagles gave up on him.

The entire PFT staff picked Dawkins, who started every game, made 116 tackles, and started in the Pro Bowl, from a group of finalists that included Saints safety Darren Sharper, Ravens safety Ed Reed, and Browns safety/receiver Mike Furrey.

Dawkins was voted his team's Ed Block Courage Award winner for 2009, and he hooked up Dan Leone with two tickets to Dawkins' December return to Philly. (Leone, as you may recall, was fired from a game-day gig at Lincoln Financial Field after criticizing the Eagles via Facebook for letting Dawkins sign elsewhere.)

Yeah but he didn't play safety or receiver at anywhere near the level of the other guys on the list. I wonder if their RB of the Year list involves: Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, and Darren McFadden.
