Dawson is the only player in the NFL that has been on the Browns’ roster every season since the franchise returned to the NFL in 1999. Dawson has made over 300 field goals in his career and, last season, hit 29 of his 31 field goal attempts, including a perfect 7 for 7 on field goals longer than 50 yards.
