49ers to franchise Dashon Goldson

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers will place their franchise tag on safety Dashon Goldson.

Goldson had a great year in 2011 with 67 tackles and 6 interceptions.

Since the 49ers used their tag on Goldson, they’ll have to work hard over the next week and a half to get quarterback Alex Smith and cornerback Carlos Rogers under contract.
