I have recently been in contact with a rep for Dashon and arranged an interview. I just received an email informing me that Dashon is currently in contract negotiations for an extension.

As soon as everything gets finalized, I will be able to run my piece. Just wanted to give you guys the 411 BEFORE you hear it ANYWHERE else......



well

There will be always hungrier guys that have something to prove that will come in and work.


ProFootballFocus really sucks when ranking positions. They had Vernon Davis as what? the 57th best TE?

Not really sure what the point is with the OP. Just bragging rights to remind us where "we heard it first"? That seems like a cry for a pat on the head. Anyway, I sure do hope we work a deal with Goldson, but anything over 4 mil a year would be ridiculous. He's just not proven enough for that load of green.

It has been reported that myself and the 49ers have had contract talks this offseason.....Do you think I am the next in line for an extension?

Matt Maiocco:
Not necessarily. I've heard that his representation is asking for a monster deal -- somewhere along the lines of $7 million a year.



is he worth 7 mil a year?
nfl salaries for safetys in 2009

f**k NO

Maybe 3-4 million tops

You mean 3 million at the most!!! If he can start making plays like Nick Collins, than we can talk 3-4 million a year!!!

For a guy whose only stared for 1 year that's pretty f**king retarded.

I think he's all about the money. Couple months ago someone asked him on twitter what he wanted to do after football was over, his response was something like "nothing I want to make enough money so I don't have to do anything". Not his exact words but something along those lines.

And he also tweeted about Wilson's contract, something about "opening doors for us all". Dude really thinks he deserves 7 mil

Yep, I like Goldson but I think he's a merc like Franklin. R Smith was very highly rated coming out of college and was talked about being a 1st round talent for a while. Granted his inability to stay healthy is a concern but if he can get some reps I really think people will be surprised.

Yeah it'd be nice if Reggie could step up and put some heat on Dashon.

To go one step further into it

Reggie Smith
A highly-touted prospect out of high school, Smith made an immediate impact for the Sooners as a true freshman and played in all 39 games of his career before being held out of the Fiesta Bowl due to a broken big toe on his right foot. Smith lacks the elite speed of other big-name cornerbacks, but plays with instincts and toughness. He is one of the more versatile defensive backs of the 2008 draft due to his experience at cornerback and free safety.

Positives: Well-built athlete. ... Rare size for the position. ... Instinctive player. ... Lacks elite timed speed, but is rarely beaten deep due to his smooth hip turn and route-recognition skills. ... Competitive player who battles for the ball. ... Physical. ... Uses his hands well to re-route the receiver and disrupt the timing with the quarterback. ... Reads the action quickly and is quick to support the run. ... Explosive hitter. ... Versatile defender with experience at free safety. ... Talented return specialist who shows the ability to make the first defender miss and has the vision to run to daylight. Negatives: Has to answer questions about his timed speed. ... Broken toe suffered before the Fiesta Bowl will have to get a clean bill of health at the Combine. ... Has been protected by the aggressive nature of Oklahoma's defense. Quarterbacks simply didn't have much time to challenge him deep while dealing with the Sooner pass rush. Compares To: Quentin Jammer, Chargers

2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
person
Reggie Smith, CB, Oklahoma
Smith's stock is rapidly rising after a stellar junior season and he is being projected as a first-round pick.

As a freshman, he received Freshman All-America and All-Big 12 accolades from The Sporting News after recording 47 tackles and two interceptions. The honors kept coming after an impressive sophomore season, during which he made 41 tackles and picked off three passes.

He was named the preseason Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year coming into his junior season and he hasn't disappointed, starring in a talented Sooners' defense. Heading into OU's Big 12 title game tilt with Missouri, Smith has 74 tackles (55 solo, 19 assists, 6.5 for loss, one sack), three interceptions, 10 pass breakups, and a fumble return for a touchdown.

Smith's primary position in college has been strong safety, though he has also seen time at corner. Several services have him pegged as a corner on the next level, though he could very well remain at safety. With great size and speed, he can match up well with the league's taller, bigger receivers. He loves to be wherever the ball is, may it be making a tackle, defending a pass, or going for a loose ball.

Wherever he plays in the secondary, he can be a big-time player. He could also be a kick and punt returner, where he has performed well in college (one return for a score last season).

Oklahoma has produced a lot of pro talent on the defensive side of the ball and Smith stands to be another in that line. If he elects to bypass his senior season, the timing couldn't be better with the season he's having. There are a lot of players jockeying to be in the first few defensive backs off of the board and when draft day comes, there's a good chance Smith could be one of those guys.

Update (12/28/07): Smith won't play in next week's Fiesta Bowl against West Virginia due to a broken big toe on his right foot. The toe was broken during OU's 38-17 victory over Missouri in the Big 12 Championship Game on Dec. 1.

Because of the injury, Smith's streak of 39 consecutive games played (every game since he's been at Oklahoma) will end and it could be a premature end to his collegiate career, as the 2007 All-Big 12 first-teamer is still widely projected as a first-round pick in next April's draft.

Smith ends his junior season with 78 tackles (seven tackles for loss), one sack, three INTs, 11 pass breakups, and a fumble return for a touchdown.

Update (4/12/08): After not working out at the combine and Oklahoma's Pro Day, Smith, along with receiver Malcolm Kelly, worked out for scouts on Wednesday. It was a mostly good day for Smith, who showed great jumping ability with a 39 1/2 inch vertical and a broad jump of 10 feet, 9 inches and he also did well in the 20-yard shuttle (4.03 seconds) and 3-cone drill (6.7 seconds). However, he couldn't crack 4.6 in the 40, running a best of 4.61.

That lack of timed speed could hurt Smith's draft status, but he should be drafted in the first two rounds and could still go in the first, because of his versatility and his play over the last three seasons.
just have to connect the dots on this one, antrell rolle gets overpaid, goldson agent is rosenhaus and goldson has free agency looming.....i think he played well last season but all this talk about 7 mil a year is stupid

At this stage in his career, he's not worth 7 million. He's been injured a lot and last season was probably the first time he's been healthy for the whole season. He has tons of potential, but he's not there yet. At the same time, I can see why he would be angling for such a contract. As has been previously stated, his agent is Rosenhaus and he got that huge contract for Antrel Rolle who IMO was way overpaid and isn't even very good. If Rolle could get such a huge contract, I can see why Goldson would feel he deserves something along those lines.

Per MM

S Dashon Goldson. The 49ers were close to reaching an extension with Goldson when he switched agents. Now he and Drew Rosenhaus are looking for a bigger - much bigger - deal, one that would make Goldson one of the three or four highest-paid safeties in the league. (Rosenhaus client Antrel Rolle is the highest-paid safety. He signed a five-year, $37 million contract with $15 million guaranteed with the Giants earlier this year). The 49ers need to see Goldson in action another season before making a decision. Yes, Goldson has plenty of potential, and the 49ers are salivating over a potential Goldson-Taylor Mays safety tandem. But that's all it is right now - potential. Goldson also has a long injury history that goes back to college. Last year was his first 16-game season.
The only way he gets the contract he wants from the niners is if he plays lights out for the first half of the season. Im guessing his future is with another team... He has one good season and plays one of the most injury prone positions, if he wants his big payday hes gonna have to stay healthy and he is gonna have to keep his play at a high level, win/win... worse comes to worse we franchise him ;) (if thats even an option after 2011.
