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.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR's Murph & Mac show this morning. He provided an update on his rookie quarterback, Trey Lance, who has been recovering from a chipped bone in his finger suffered on August 29 in the preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders. The 49ers are preparing for their Week 1 matchup against the Detroit Lions, and Lance has been limited in the team's last two practices. Lynch was asked if his rookie will be available on Sunday. "It looks like it," Lynch responded. "He's had two good days of practice, provided he goes out there today and doesn't have any setbacks, which, at this point, is just about not hitting his hand on anyone's helmet, the way he [initially injured the finger]. "He's



'I just got to step up to the plate': New 49ers starting cornerback Deommodore Lenoir on his new role

A lot of newer young players will need to step up to the plate in order to fill the void left in the once potent 49ers' secondary after former starting cornerback Jason Verrett went down for the season with a torn ACL. Even prior to the heart-breaking loss in arguably the most important defensive unit this season, the secondary depth, especially the cornerback, was a red flag. Behind Verrett was an injured Emmanuel Moseley and two unproven rookie cornerbacks, who had size and skill concerns as they were taken after the first two rounds, not a great place to invest in a premium position. Fifth-round rookie Deommodore Lenoir however, has been a very pleasant surprise for San Fransisco, at least through preseason and Week 1 of the NFL season. Lenoir allowed a 0.0 passer rating

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jalen Hurd was among the names head coach Kyle Shanahan rattled off while sharing who would miss practice today. The team is preparing for its regular-season opener on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, and Hurd is still dealing with a knee issue. Hurd missed all of last season after suffering an ACL injury during training camp and has spent each of his two NFL seasons on injured reserve. He may land there again. The coach was asked if Hurd is a candidate for injured reserve, sidelining him for at least three weeks. "Yes, he is," Shanahan responded. Hurd played in the 49ers' preseason finale on August 29 after missing the first two exhibition matchups and appeared to come out of the game
