Goldson wants to be the league’s top paid safety

Mar 9, 2013 at 1:38 PM--




Apparently the Washington Redskins looked into bringing in Dashon Goldson, but they backed off when they realized what he was asking. Emmanual Benton, a Redskins beat writer for Pro Player Insiders, reports that Goldson essentially wants to to be paid as the league's top safety.

Earlier today, it was being reported that Goldson is seeking a deal that will deliver $8 million a year. Given that the team could have franchised him at the one-year price of $7.45 million, that would likely be more than the 49ers are willing to pay.

Goldson will become a free agent starting on Tuesday, March 12 at 1 PM, when he can sign with any team. 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, a touchdown and has been voted to two Pro Bowls.

Garafolo: Arden Key's development with 49ers will get him paid this offseason

By Kirk Larrabee
Jan 8

Arden Key is starting to develop into the pass rusher many scouts felt he'd become coming out of college, and as a result, Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network thinks he could be in for a solid payday after the season comes to an end. Key showed plenty of potential as a raw pass rush prospect at LSU, where he rocketed up mock draft boards after posting 55 tackles and 11 sacks in 11 games as a sophomore in 2016 before falling back a bit after a 33-tackle/four sack showing as a junior. Key slipped to Round 3 of the 2018 NFL Draft, where he was scooped up by the Raiders at pick 87 overall. He totaled 44 tackles and three sacks in 37 games with the Raiders before being waived in April of 2021, then landed a one-year deal with the 49ers, with whom he's found an important role as the

There's something significantly different about San Francisco 49ers on offense this week compared to where they were when they played the Green Bay Packers in Week 3 of the regular season. That difference is the role of wide receiver Deebo Samuel, whose emergence as a running back throughout the course of the season makes the 49ers more difficult to stop than they were when they fell 30-28 to the Packers at Levi's Stadium on September 26. Samuel had two carries for zero yards in that game, giving him a total of four carries for eight yards over his first three games. He had six total carries over his first nine games before exploding over the second half of the season to finish with 59 carries for 365 yards and eight touchdowns to go with his receiving stats of



49ers-Packers: Kyle Shanahan wants Trey Lance to 'let it rip' while imitating Aaron Rodgers in practice

Trey Lance has a tough task this week. No, he is not expecting to start Saturday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. As part of the practice squad, the San Francisco 49ers rookie has to mimic future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers for the defense in practice. Lance's development has benefited from imitating opposing quarterbacks all season. Sometimes that is a versatile quarterback like Kyler Murray or Justin Fields. Other times, it is a more stationary passer, like Kirk Cousins. Lance studying Rodgers this week can only make him a better quarterback. "Aaron does a real good job of not making bad decisions and not turning the ball over," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters before Tuesday's practice. "But he also makes all the
