-While I think Goldson hasn't earned an extension, tendering him would make a lot of sense. New DB coaches and new DC give him another year. If someone chooses to match the tender we could let him walk for a draft pick (depending on what the tender amount is) another year??? it's his 4th...he sucks at FS. i don't see absolutely no reason to tender him.
-2 years is not too much for Spikes and sends zero message. It doesn't guarantee a roster spot for either year, he still has to earn it. Vets get these kind of deals all the time and it doesn't mean he'd be here for 2 more years. yeah, right...neither bowman nor mckillop wouldn't mind about that at all...
-Washington gives you an additional player with return skills yes, however he'd be over a year removed from the broken leg. He is a change of pace back to Gore/Dixon and has proven before the broken leg his worth as a pass catcher out of the backfield as well. he was good behind the jets' o-line...and if you wanna another returner, go get one in the later rounds of the draft.
-Baas's agent may very well whisper in his ear not to accept a fair offer from the 9ers and to test the open market, as some team may be willing to overpay for his services.
-Goldson isn't a RFA that was a mistake but if he was then yes you tender him. He can be given a chance to compete for a roster spot. He may not be starter material but at least you have a backup with starting experience. Since he is an UFA then letting him test the market is the right thing to do.
-Bowman and McKillop aren't supposed to like it, but they also know this is a business and will have to compete to win that job. Competition brings out the best. At worst, you have an experienced and proven backup.
-Again Washington provides the true change of pace back. The return skills are bonus.
