After Vinatieri, Phil Dawson is the second-oldest active player in the NFL.

The 43-year-old Arizona Cardinals placekicker was born in 1975.

That's a full 22 years earlier than the birth year of teammate Josh Rosen.

Dawson has converted an impressive 436 of his 518 career field goal attempts.

That's good for a career field goal percentage of 84.2%.

Dawson's been around for so long that he's even had a rule named after him. The "Phil Dawson" rule allows any kick that hits the uprights or crossbar to be reviewable by replay.
