Make Dashon Goldson the highest paid safety in the league?

Make Dashon Goldson the highest paid safety in the league?

The one thing that concerns me about Goldson is that, if we re-signed him to a long term deal, he'd be 100% focused on just football and doing whatever he can to help us win with winning being the bottom line. Now, I feel like he may gamble more to get more INT's even if it means more big plays allowed or he may go for more big hits instead of just wrapping up to put more electric film out there for other teams to see to maximize the contract he gets next year. Anyone else have this fear?
He's gonna play his ass off, no doubt. But if he's missing tackles, he knows it'll hurt his pocket.
I think most safeties would think (and probably correctly too) that more INT's and more missed tackles will still get you more money than fewer missed tackles but also fewer INT's. There's no stat for missed tackles but INT's is the big, juicy stat for DB's.
they call him....... The Hawk.....
Two years ago he didn't play well, last year he played really well. Even many people in this same forum were saying to get rid of him before last season. Give him another year and see which Dashon shows up. No reason to drop 6-8 mil on a Safety when not being 100 percent sure he's worth the money.

problem is, he's not looking for a $20 million gamble. It's more like 40.
When does DG have to officially report to camp/practice?

He doesn't, because he's not under contract.

Correct, I believe he can sign the 1 year deal any time he wants from now all the way into the season. Not sure if there is a deadline when he has to sign it by. Aubrayo Franklin a few years back waited until August 28 (a few weeks into pre season). I believe he felt the longer he waited the less chance there was of him getting hurt in training camp or the pre season.

Maybe AB could help us but Goldson doesn't have to sign it at all and until he signs it he doesn't have to report to camp. He could hold out into the season as well forcing us to trade him. Wouldn't make sense otherwise because we can't negotiate with him until after our last game of the season (Dec 30). It would mean he loses out on more money than he's made his previous 5 years in the league and also risking teams signing him after being out a year. So odds are he doesn't hold out, doesn't do him much good... it's just a matter of is he bitter and wanting to hold out of training camp to stiff us sort of speak. If he's smart he gets in asap because the better he plays this year the more he makes and although he will probably be in the right physical shape (he's been working out on his own) he needs to meet up with the defense and coaches and catch up mentally.

Holding out is stupid. Your chances of getting injured go up drastically if you dont participate in camp........

Well, I would agree if he wasn't working out on his own. If he was sitting on the coach eating than yes but Whitner and others have talked to him and he is working out on his own and at a few performance places.
Can't remember what the deadline is, but if Goldson is looking to hold out for long? The Niners can opt to just yank the 1 year tag back and Goldson would just go into FA. There is no more leverage to be had for Dashon. His only bet is to sign, practice to be the best FS he can be in 2012, and then elevate his value even more. Holding out would be counter-productive to that end.
