Unrestricted free agents Brandon Jackson, a running back from Green Bay and defensive back Usama Young of New Orleans also were among the signings announced Saturday before new coach Pat Shurmur held his long-awaited first practice.
Signing tenders were Dawson as a franchise player, tight end Evan Moore as a restricted free agent and linebacker Marcus Benard and defensive lineman Brian Schaefering as rights players. Offensive lineman Billy Yates also re-signed.
The only unsigned draft pick remaining is No. 1 Phil Taylor, a defensive lineman from Baylor.
