Pro Bowl safety Dashon Goldson and the San Francisco 49ers aren't far apart on the base element of a new deal, but that doesn't mean a deal will get done. A source told CSNBayArea.com that Goldson wants a contract with an annual average of $8 million. The 49ers probably are not be willing to go more than $7 million per year, the source said. Goldson was given the 49ers' franchise tag earlier this year, and is scheduled to earn $6.212 on a one-year deal if the two sides can't hammer out an agreement by July 16. Secondary coach Ed Donatell isn't losing sleep over Goldson's situation. "This happens all over football," Donatell said. "Nobody has a complete group. We have as complete as anybody. Anytime a guy can't play, we look for the advantage to train another guy to give you a Plan B and C and so forth. But his (Goldson's) history is, when he's ready to go, he's ready to go and he plays well." Source: NFL.com

Just last week we learned that San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson is looking for a similar contract to what the San Diego Chargers gave Eric Weddle in 2011.
According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, with Goldson looking for a contract that will pay him roughly $8 million a year, the 49ers likely won’t be willing to give him more than $7 million per season...
The San Francisco 49ers franchise tagged Dashon Goldson earlier this offseason after he made the Pro Bowl for the 1st time in his career last season, assuring him 6.2 million in 2012. Goldson has yet to sign the tender nor has he attended 49ers’ voluntary OTAs. In fact, he reportedly has no “immediate plans” to even come to the Bay Area. Goldson is said to be seeking Eric Weddle...

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has gained a reputation for using players in non-traditional roles, and he may be doing it again with Will Tukuafu, a defensive tackle who has been spending time at fullback during practice. On Tuesday, Tukuafu caught a pass while coming out of the backfield, and the 6-4-, 293-pound Tukuafu has been getting quite a bit of practice time...

In one breath, Aldon Smith says he has moved past the disappointment of not winning the Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award. In the next, he still simmers.
All Smith can do now is set his sights even higher.

The 49ers doubled up on only one position, outside linebacker, during the recent draft because they had so few outside linebackers on the 53-man roster last season. Now both of those draft picks are out with - presumably - knee injuries. Jim Harbaugh said seventh-round pick Cam Johnson had a "clean-out" procedure that is not expected to keep him out of training camp. Harbaugh...
I will say this about Jim Harbaugh: He doesn't care what our perception of him is. The San Francisco 49ers head coach is not losing an ounce of sleep over the belief he told a lie regarding his team's curious inspection of Peyton Manning this offseason.
Harbaugh, whose team is stuck with Alex Smith for at least another year, recently volunteered "to come clean"...
In 1979 former NFL tight end, Eric Johnson, was birthed in Needham, MA. Fun fact, Needham has been a Coca-Cola bottling plant since 1986, and on top of that is a packaging plant for Trader Joe’s. Also a good-looking kid by the name of Phil Dec is from Needham, MA (feel free to comment if you know Phil Dec). Regardless of these irrelevant tid-bits, Eric Johnson went to Needham HS...
