44-year-old free agent kicker Phil Dawson is undecided if he will return to the NFL for a 22nd season according to Kevin Kleps of crainscleveland.com.

"Every year, honestly, for the past seven or eight years, I come home in the offseason and assess where I am and where my family is, and then we all sit down and make a decision," Dawson said. "We’re in the process of doing that again."

The reality of the situation, of course, is that the decision is not entirely up to Dawson.  It seems likely he would have already committed to the 2019 season is a team was clamoring to sign him.  Dawson has been one of the best kickers in the NFL for two decades and was stellar in his 14 seasons in Cleveland and his subsequent four years with the 49ers.  The last two years with the Arizona Cardinals have not been so great.  Dawson's conversion rate in 2017 was 80-percent and he had attempted only eight field goals for the wretched Cardinals offense in 2018 before missing the last six games of the season with a hip issue.  It would not be a shock if Dawson has kicked for the last time in the NFL.
