According to ProFootballWeekly.com, as good as 49ers safety Dashon Goldson has been this season, it’s not a lock that he’ll be back in San Francisco next season.
“As good as 49ers FS Dashon Goldson has been the first half of the season, we hear it’s hardly a slam dunk that the team opts to re-sign him at season’s end and keeps him from testing what could be a pretty hot market for his services in free agency. ‘I’m just not sure what they’re going to do about him,’ one team insider said, per PFW. ‘They’re pretty high on (fourth-year pro C.J.) Spillman (as a future starting safety). Plus, with heavy payments kicking in for the new stadium, they might not have the money,'” wrote PFW.
Even if the 49ers want to re-sign Goldson, they may not have the cap room to make it happen.
