The New England Patriots Need to Sign Brian Dawkins

Nathan RollinsContributor IFebruary 28, 2009

The New England Patriots need a strong safety, and Brian Dawkins is the answer.

Dawkins would be perfect in the backfield with James Sanders in free agency, and no real good strong safety to build around.

Plus, Dawkins had 64 tackles, one interception, three sacks, and six forced fumbles in 2008.

Dawkins is a 14-year veteran, and a perfect fit in Foxbrough.
