oday was the day that teams are allowed to place the franchise tag on one of their players if they wish. The one player the 49ers need to decide if they want to place the tag on is Dashon Goldson. Last season the 49ers place the tag on the free agent safety and this season, the decision is not as simple.
Goldson is already on record stating that he would prefer not to be tagged
…no security in it. I think I’ve done what I’ve had to do to deserve a second contract, period.
and Jim Harbaugh has stated that Goldson deserves the money he should get.
Now the dilemma is do they tag Goldson or don’t they. It was mentioned today that if Goldson gets tagged, then the team will most likely have to release Alex Smith and let him walk without anything in return. With the $8.5 million due to Smith and the tag price for Goldson, the 49ers can’t afford to have both under the cap.
The franchise tag, it’s cool…but everybody wants security.
Smith’s salary puts the 49ers ...

According to Matt Maiocca of csnbayarea.com, the San Francisco 49ers don't know if they are going to franchise safety Dashon Goldson for a second straight year.
Goldson, who badly wants to test the free agent market, may get his chance if the 49ers don’t dump Alex Smith. The 49ers have to either cut Smith or trade him in order to franchise tag Goldson. Smith’s salary puts...
Turron Davenport of Press Coverage Sports is back with another guest post. This time he takes a look at the Alex Smith situation.
he 49ers have a decision on their hands. Alex Smith is set to earn a pretty large amount of money that is too much for a backup quarterback. The name that one of my favorite people to talk football with Brad Smith aka @TheDeepDig applies now more than...
The photos just surfaced ... showing 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick
partying on board a cruise ship in Mexico last year ... letting girls
do body shots off his six pack ... and they're so awesome, we couldn't
resist posting them. More impressive ... the pics were shot BEFORE Colin replaced starting QB Alex Smith.
Seriously, how awesome does it have to be being an NFL...
DT Johnathan Jenkins out of Georgia is a player the 49ers could target at No. 31. With Justin Smith getting older and Ricky Jean-Francois and Isaac Sopoaga free agents, Williams is a perfect player to take over the defensive line for years to come.
