Browns franchise kicker Dawson
The Cleveland Browns have placed the franchise tag on veteran kicker Phil Dawson, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported via Mary Kay Cabot's Twitter feed.
Dawson will make $3.8 million under the franchise tag this season after making $3.25 million being tagged last season.
The veteran kicker is the longest tenured Browns player, the lone remaining player from when the franchise re-entered the league in 1999 as an expansion team.
