There are not alot of good safties in the league today and Dashon is a solid player whom almost made two big interceptions agains the Giants that would have put the 49ers in the super bowl. I hope he gets a good deal, he showed his loyalty a resigned with the 49ers last year on a 1 year deal and now it's time he get paid well.
Yeah I hope he gets a deal that is good for the team and they player. My argument is that 8 million a year is not a good deal for a team that will have other free agents coming up. It is not that I don't want the guy on the team, he is a top 10 safety without a doubt.
The only thing I have a problem with is some attacking Dashon's charactor...as if he is the first 9er to ever "hold out"...let alone first NFL player to do so. There are also others who try to discredit his work, just because they feel he shouldn't be paid the money that the Chargers paid Weddle. There is nothing wrong with wanting our team to be in good finacial shape for years to come. But that doesn't mean some have to spew BS about stuff that they don't know about or stuff that is untrue..just to let off some frustration about the situation.
I mean even you are presuming that he is taking his time because he doesn't want to be at the OTAs...even though, if you have been following team news, he has been going to various places across the country to train with Top Notch trainers to keep himself in shape.
Everything I've read from fellow players and coaches, and these trainners is that Dashon is a hard worker and they expect him to be ready as soon as he gets with the team. These are people who know him much better than some on this message board.
