Hope his health is good in his retirement!

I loved watching him play as a Bronco, I hope he sticks around in some capacity with the organization.

It was time. Glad he hung it up before he was forced to.

I hope our safeties took something away from how he played the game. Hope we don't see as many missed tackles this year.

Thanks Dawk!

I agree, It is always nice to see someone go out on their terms. He had a career most would look upon with envy. Thanks for the last 3 years.

Thanks for the passionate way you played the game you were a joy to watch. Hope your injuries heal 100% and you win the Dancing With the Stars contest.

Wow! Sad to see this day come. Dawkins was a pro's pro. Hope our young DBs learned something from him. Hell, I hope the Broncos offer him a coaching gig.

What a classy player, sure did get our defense ready to play. He will be missed on the field. I wish him well in is after football life.

Wonder if we could get him to give pre-game pep talks this year

How much money would it cost to clone a 25 year old version of him? I'd be willing to chip in if Bowlen can't cover it all.

Congrats on a HoF career! Wish more of it had been in Denver.
