"Of the safeties who have played 800-plus snaps this year, he's surrendered the eighth-highest completion percentage. He allowed four touchdowns this year (tied for fifth among safeties) despite the amazing front seven he has in front of him. He's tied for sixth in penalties among safeties this year. If he played behind a mediocre front seven, he would be exposed. Those who just look at stats and Pro Bowl voting might think Goldson is great, but he's just a backup at best"
not sure how reliable these stats are, i got them off a draft site. scroll down to #5 on 49ers fa for full comment. I think goldson is better suited to the
SS spot, and wouldnt go as far as saying he is a backup. I also dont think he is worth nearly the amount of money he wants, i hope we sign him
to a lesser contract or upgrade through the draft. ( not this year though, safety class is looking pretty weak). Niners made the right move with the Franchise tag.
