Free Agent S Dashon Goldson Has Reached Out To Rams & Raiders

In an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio, free agent S Dashon Goldson mentioned that he’s reached out to the Rams and Raiders about a potential opportunity with them.

  • Goldson added that he’s hoping to finish out his NFL career on the West Coast.

The Rams actually brought Goldson in a for a visit last week, but there hasn’t been any updates regarding a potential agreement between the two since then. Los Angeles previously showed some interest in free agent S Donte Whitner back in April, so they’re clearly in the market for a safety.

As for the Raiders, they have already signed veteran S Reggie Nelson and used their first-round pick on Karl Joseph, so it’s unlikely that they’ll be an option, barring an injury.

The Cowboys came up as a potential option for Goldson and a return to the Redskins was also mentioned as a possibility. Although, that was back in March, and the two teams may feel comfortable about their current depth at the position.

Goldson, 31, was in the the fourth year of his five-year, $41.25 million contract that included $22 million guaranteed when he was released in a move that freed up $8 million in available cap space for the Redskins.

In 2015, Goldson appeared in 15 games for the Redskins and recorded 110 tackles, one interception returned for a touchdown, a forced fumble and three pass defenses for Washington.
