Dashon Goldson agrees to 5 year, $41.25 million deal with the Buccaneers

Mar 13, 2013 at 12:03 PM--




According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, former San Francisco 49ers free agent safety Dashon Goldson has signed a five year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Goldson was ready to visit with the Buccaneers at the start of free agency on Tuesday. The Buccaneers sent a private plane to California to pick Goldson up and take him to Tampa.

According to Pro Football Talk, the five year deal is worth $41.25 million, with $22 million guaranteed. That's an average of $8.25 million a year.

Just minutes before the deal was announce, CSN Bay Area's Mindi Bach reported that perhaps the 49ers never expected to bring Goldson back. The 49ers never offered Goldson a contract or the framework for a deal.

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, was the top safety available in free agency. In recent years, the 49ers have been known not to overpay for their free agents. Goldson was rumored to be seeking a deal around $8 million a year, which was too much for the 49ers. 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.

The San Francisco 49ers announced that the team has re-signed cornerback Ken Webster to a one-year deal. He was scheduled to become an exclusive-rights free agent. The New England Patriots made Webster a seventh-round selection out of Ole Miss in 2019, but the defensive back was part of the team's final roster cuts. He landed with the Miami Dolphins and appeared in eight games with five starts in 2019 but finished the season on injured reserve. San Francisco signed Webster off the Dolphins practice squad on September 16, 2020. He appeared in nine games with the 49ers this past season, registering six tackles and a forced fumble before a hamstring injury landed the defender on injured reserve on December 1, 2020. Webster, 24, has recorded 25 tackles,

One way or another, offensive tackle Trent Williams is about to become an even richer man. It could be with the San Francisco 49ers, which traded for the offensive lineman last year to replace a retiring Joe Staley, or it could be with another team. The 49ers had contract talks with Williams' representatives before the team's final game of the season but couldn't come to an agreement. The veteran tackle admits that his preferred offseason outcome would be a return to San Francisco but is curious about his free-agency value. "It's been 11 years in the league,"

Irvin: 49ers would win the Super Bowl 'every year' with Deshaun Watson

Hall of Fame wide receiver turned analyst Michael Irvin joins Bay Area radio every week to discuss all things football. So, of course, 95.7 The Game's Damon Bruce had to ask Irvin about the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers adding a dynamic and exciting player like quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson is not happy with the Houston Texans, which has led to speculation that the quarterback could request a trade. Naturally, that means nearly every fanbase that feels Watson would be an upgrade over their team's current quarterback situation is creating online chatter about a trade. "I had already heard about all of the mess that was going on inside of Houston, but I thought no way, no way it would get to this place," Irvin told Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt
