Make Dashon Goldson the highest paid safety in the league?

Make Dashon Goldson the highest paid safety in the league?

No way do I want to risk losing Bowman in the future to pay this guy 8 million a year. Solid saftey but far from the best in the league, thus he should not be paid as the best in the league.
If 8 million is what he truly wants then bye, bye Goldson. I like him and all, but no way every guy on our defense can get top dollar and I value retaining Bowman (who probably won't cost 8 million, but might be worth it) more than I value retaining Goldson.

Don't be surprised is Bowman wants Willis type money b/c he knows and we all know he can get that on the free market if his play remains at such a high level.
Yeah, Lamont, i kinda worried about that. If we do have to pay up , I'd much rather it be Bowman than Goldson. Altho his offer sheet is still fair and to us folks, a lot of money.

We may have to keep franchising Bowman when his contract expires, unless we can find a way to extend his deal soon.

Rather pay Bowman, Goldson is a product of the people around him.
Titans signed franchise player FS Michael Griffin to a long-term extension.


According to Profootballtalk, the deal is worth roughly $7 million per over five years. Griffin ranks fourth among safeties with 17 interceptions over the past five years. For his efforts he's been twice selected to the Pro Bowl (2008, 2010). Griffin has played all 80 games, including 73 starts, since the Titans selected him with the 19th pick in the 2007 draft. He was due to earn $6.2 million under the franchise tag.

He probably deserves it or maybe a BIT less only because Willis is kinda the best to ever play the position. Bowman deserves a massive long term contract for sure. Dashon Goldson is replaceable and the 49ers know that. The only person who doesn't seem to know that is Goldson himself.
If Goldson is so replaceable, would you please enlighten those of us who disagree with who you're going to replace him with? There is no guarantee that we'll be in a position to draft an instant star or land a top FA since we couldn't keep our own. I honestly don't understand. We suffered from poor safetly play for a long time waiting for this kid to develop and now that he has you wan't to replace him with an unknown? Some undervalue Goldson on here. He is every bit the play Griffin is. My brother is a huge Titans fan so I get to watch every Titans game.

Well, if he is irreplaceable why didn't he get any offers from other teams and why were the 49ers so quick to tag him instead of lock him up? I am basing this off of watching him play and quite frankly not being impressed. I don't know who would replace him but I am sure the front office could figure it out.
Goldson might be replaceable, but we are set to make a Superbowl run now. Throwing a rookie or unproven player back there at this point could be the differene between the 31st and the 32nd pick in the draft....

49ers gave him the Franchise tag so no other team could get a chance to make him an offer. Yes I agree Goldson looks great in our defense due to the fact our front 7 are amazing. I do still think he is the best player in our secondary. He made some big time plays last year. People seem to undervalue him way too much

I don't think it's undervaluing him so much as it is that our Niners can't afford to pay everyone top dollar. He also comes off as the type of player who all of a sudden plays well when it's close to payday and who you worry may drop off significantly when the team shows him the money.
