Dashon Goldson says “no progress” on new deal

Mar 8, 2013 at 8:12 AM--




The San Francisco 49ers' soon-to-be free agent safety, Dashon Goldson, said on Twitter yesterday that there has been no progress on a new deal between himself and the 49ers.


Goldson will become a free agent starting on Tuesday, March 12 at 1 PM, when he can sign with any team. Teams will be able to begin negotiations with his agent tonight at 9 PM. However, he will not be able to begin any visits to other teams until free agency officially begins on Tuesday.

Drafted by the 49ers in the 4th round of the 2007 NFL Draft, Goldson has played six seasons with the team. During that time, he has recorded 346 tackles, 3 sacks, 14 interceptions, 5 forced fumbles and a touchdown.

Goldson, a two-time Pro Bowler, is expected to be the top safety available in free agency. In recent years, the 49ers have been known not to overpay for their free agents and may be willing to let Goldson hit the open market. The team could have used the franchise tag on him this year, which would have kept him in San Francisco at the one-year price of $7.45 million. However, the 49ers decided not to do so.

Sauce Gardner says Brandon Aiyuk is underutilized by 49ers

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has the respect of Sauce Gardner. The New York Jets' All-Pro cornerback, responding to a take by FS1 analyst Emmanuel Acho, praised Aiyuk, suggesting the veteran player is one of the best receivers in the game. Acho criticized Aiyuk following complaints from the receiver's inner circle about his limited opportunities during the postseason, during which Aiyuk managed just nine receptions across three playoff games. While Acho respects Aiyuk, he argued that the primary focus of the 49ers' offense is running back Christian McCaffrey, which may limit opportunities for other playmakers. He pointed out that complaints about

John Lynch says Brock Purdy has given 49ers stability at QB

The San Francisco 49ers finally have stability at the quarterback position. And it's been a while coming. Three years ago, the team was on the verge of making a major trade for the chance to draft Trey Lance, who they hoped would be the QB they had been waiting on. They needed to find a new quarterback because of the lack of stability at the position, primarily due to the number of games starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo seemed to miss most seasons. But after watching Lance for some time, questions began to arise as to whether or not he could be the quarterback they drafted him to be. And after he and Garoppolo both were lost to injury in 2022, Brock Purdy, the barely-drafted seventh-rounder came in and saved the season, leading the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game. But a torn

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
