I asked #49ers safety and pending free agent Dashon Goldson if he was confident he'd land a long-term deal …
"Yeah, somewhere," he said. "Somewhere. Hopefully it's here, but it's hard to say. I'm doing the right things on and off the field, but I don't know. I don't hear it. I don't hear, stuff like 'We're really happy.' I don't get that assurance. So you don't ever know. You don't know what's going to happen." Goldson, who received the franchise tag this season, could get tagged again next year, at 120 percent of his 2012 salary.
Im telling you all this dude cares about is his money, once he gets paid his play is gonna decline rapidly
Or maybe he has really low self-esteem and needs constant reassurance...
Seriously, doe: I think it's clear money is his top priority, with that said, he doesn't strike me as a guy that would fad into the back round after getting paid. He plays with so much heart, its hard for me to believe its all about the money? But who really knows.
Poor little Goldson gets no respect.....
"Ed Reed's a little different guy, the way he's always played safety," Fangio said
. "Ed's got tremendous instincts and a great feel for the ball, tremendous ball skills. And Ed's one of the best safeties in this era the last 10, 15 years, for sure. But Dashon, I think, is right up there with him."
