Ben Dogra, the agent for San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson, just informed CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco that "There will not be a long-term deal for Dashon."
Therefore, Goldson will have to play under his franchise tag contract for the season and the 49ers cannot negotiate a long-term contract with him until after the final game. He will make $6.212 million in 2012. The 49ers also have the option of placing the franchise tag on Goldson next year, which would pay him 120% of his 2012 franchise contract. That comes out to about $7.45 million.
Last week on Sirius XM NFL radio, Goldson said that he was fine playing under the franchise tag in 2012.
