ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Brian Dawkins spent his first day of retirement at the office.
The veteran safety, who is calling it a career after 16 seasons in the NFL, dropped by Broncos headquarters Tuesday to say his goodbyes and thank the front office for allowing him to play three seasons in Denver after his bitter divorce from the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009.
Dawkins went around the locker room gathering hugs and well wishes and then stopped by the Broncos draft room, where he jokingly covered his eyes, promising not to peek.
Team owner Pat Bowlen presented Dawkins with a framed No. 20 jersey and Dawkins got one last chance to thank general manager Brian Xanders for bringing him to Denver and Broncos boss John Elway for keeping him here last season.
