Dan Leone is a former seasonal game day employee who was fired after criticizing the team through Facebook for letting All-Pro safety Brian Dawkins leave via free agency.

Dawkins showed the NFL world what a class act he is yet again, as the former Eagles great announced he will give his two allotted tickets to Leone for the regular season matchup between the Eagles and Denver Broncos (Dawkins' current team).

Said Dawkins: "I thought it'd be a good gesture. Had I not...signed with Denver, that guy would still have his job. Obviously, he made a decision and, out of emotion, said something. He was one of probably thousands and thousands of Eagles fans who felt that way.

"That didn't surprise me, that someone said that on their Facebook. It did surprise me that he was let go, though...I felt it would be a good thing to reach out to that individual and just let him know how much I appreciate it.''
