The San Francisco 49ers announced Monday that they have officially re-signed kicker Phil Dawson to a one-year deal.
- Aaron Wilson reports that the 49ers have signed him to a one-year, $3.134 million, which includes a fully guaranteed base salary for skill, injury and cap.
“Phil is a consummate professional whose production on the field and his leadership in both the locker room and the community have been great assets to our organization,” said general manager Trent Baalke. “He has an impressive approach to his craft that has allowed him to consistently rank among the best in the business throughout his career. We are pleased that Phil has chosen to continue his accomplished career with the 49ers.”
According to Maiocco, the agreement is not done as of right, but it’s head in that direction.
Dawson, 41, has played 17 seasons in the NFL including 14 with the Browns and the past three years with the 49ers. He was among the best available kickers in this year’s market.
In 2015, Dawson appeared in all 16 games and coverted 24 of 27 field goal attempts (88.9 percent) including all three from 50-plus yards to go along with 20 of 21 extra point tries.
