The Philadelphia Eagles added former safety Brian Dawkins to their scouting department Saturday.

Dawkins is an eight-time Pro Bowler and a member of the Eagles' Hall of Fame.

The team awarded Dawkins as its inaugural recipient of the Nunn-Wooten Scouting Fellowship, a new NFL program aimed at introducing former players to player personnel duties and the responsibilities of an NFL scout.

According to the team, Dawkins will study and work closely with all phases of the scouting and football operations departments.

Dawkins was a second-round draft pick in 1996 and spent 13 seasons with the Eagles. He is the franchise's all-time leader in games played (183) and interceptions (34). The five-time All-Pro selection was named to the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 2000s and voted by fans as the starting safety on the Eagles 75th Anniversary Team.
