Eagles great Brian Dawkins speaks to Sixers

Former Eagles great Brian Dawkins speaks to the Sixers on Tuesday.

Former Eagles safety Brian Dawkins spoke to the 76ers on Tuesday morning at their training facility in Camden.

Dawkins was the team’s second guest speaker this preseason. Hall of Famer and former Sixer Charles Barkley addressed the squad on Sept. 25, the night before training camp started.

Dawkins is a Philadelphia fan favorite, having played for the Eagles from 1996-2008. He went on to play for the Denver Broncos during the next three seasons.  Dawkins ended his career as a nine-time Pro Bowler and a member of the NFL all-decade team for the 200s.

The Eagles retired his No. 20 jersey. These days, Dawkins serves as the Eagles’ executive of football operations for player development.
