Super Bowl, obviously.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Saturday morning that they have added Brian Dawkins to their scouting department. 

Dawkins played from 1996 to 2011 (1996 to 2008 with the Eagles), racking up four first-team All-Pro honors, two second-team All-Pro honors, and nine trips to the Pro Bowl. He's kind of a big deal locally.

According to the Eagles, Dawkins is the Eagles' inaugural recipient of the Nunn-Wooten Scouting Fellowship, a program introducing former players to scouting.

Per an Eagles press release, "Dawkins will study and work closely with all phases of the scouting and football operations departments."

The former safety was on hand for Saturday's practice and spoke with the media afterwards about his new role with the team and why he has his sights set on "something even bigger."
