The 49ers announced they've reached an agreement with Phil Dawson on a two-year contract. Dawson himself initially tweeted about it earlier today with the following statement:

Very excited & grateful for the opportunity to return to my team & be a part of chasing the quest for six! Go niners! #itsgood

Coming off a career season with the Cleveland Browns in 2012, Dawson initially signed a one-year contract last off season. He was just as great in 2013 where he made 32 field goals and set a franchise record for 27 consecutive field goal attempts made.

If it weren't for the 71-yard free kick attempt and a bad hold by Andy Lee, Dawson's consecutive field goals streak could have been longer. Dawson, 39, will be playing in his 16th season in the NFL this fall.

The 49ers have all three special teams players under contract through 2015 with Dawson reaching an agreement for a two-year deal. Kevin McDermott is signed through 2015 while Andy Lee is signed through 2018.
