49ers S Dashon Goldson Looking For A Huge Contract

Matt Maiocco of the CSN Bay Area reports that 49ers FS Dashon Goldson is looking for a similar contract to the one signed by Eric Weddle last season.

Weddle got a five-year deal worth $40 million and includes $19 million guarantees.

Goldson has yet to sign his franchise tender in the hopes of securing a long-term deal with 49ers, but his asking price appears to be much higher than what the team is willing to pay him.

San Francisco reportedly offered him a five-year deal worth $25 million, but that was obviously turned down by Goldson and his representation. Last season, Goldson intercepted a career high, six passes, but was still ranked as one of the worst safeties in the league by Pro Football Focus. In fact, PFF hasn’t rated Goldson any higher than #57 in the last three years.

The 49ers would be wise to exercise caution in regards to paying him a top-5 salary. The deadline for reaching a long-term agreement is July 16th.
