During a conference call Thursday with Cleveland media, Phil Dawson expressed his gratitude to Browns fans for their support in helping to make his 14 seasons with the team memorable for him and his family.
“(They were) some of the greatest years of my life,” Dawson said. “It’s been an absolute privilege to wear that orange helmet and represent the fans each and every week. There are nothing but positive feelings in my mind. I look forward to seeing how the organization grows and develops and experiences success.
“I leave Cleveland with nothing but positive feelings and love for the place. I had a lot of great experiences there, great relationships there. It’s a very special place, and I was fortunate to be there when I was.”
