SAN FRANCISCO - DECEMBER 14: Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald #11 of the Arizona Cardinals misses a pass as it is broken up by Dashon Goldson #38 of the San Francisco 49ers in the first half at Candlestick Park on December 14, 2009 in San Francisco, California.

The San Francisco 49ers’ first-team All-Pro safety, Dashon Goldson, doesn’t want to be given the franchise tag for the second year in a row. “There’s no security in it,” Goldson said, per The San Francisco Chronicle. “I’ve been in this league now six years, going on seven. I think I’ve done what I’ve had to do to deserve a second contract, period.“ Franchising Goldson again this season would come with a 20 percent increase and cost them $7.5 million. Goldson is believed to be targeting a five year deal worth close to $40 million. Despite being voted to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams, Goldson ranked 13th in coverage among safeties, 44th in tackling efficiency and 21st in run stopping, per Pro Football Focus.   The post 49ers S Dashon Goldson Not Open To Being Franchised Again appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
