All Pro safety Dashon Goldson(Credit: AP Photo) With the deadline to franchise tag players passing, the 49ers have passed on using it on their All-Pro safety Dashon Goldson. Goldson was happy about this, and is still hoping to sign a long term deal with the team. A week away from the start of free agency however, he admits there has not been much talk between the two sides as of right now. “I still hope there’s a future for me in San Francisco but as far as the overall feeling, it feels good. I really hope something works out in San Francisco, its home for me,” As much as Goldson would like to remain apart of one of the leagues best defenses, he had said that he is willing to play pretty much anywhere. As long as he believes they have a chance to make the postseason, if things don’t work out in San Francisco. If he does end up on the open market there will be many teams that will attempt to acquire his services. When asked by Tim Ryan about possibly joining the Cincinnati Bengals, Goldson had a positive reaction of reuniting with some of his former teammates. “I like those guys down there. I went to school with Reggie Nelson, played with Nate Clements, I was here with Taylor Mays and Manny Lawson so I’m familiar with some of those guys and how they play,” Goldson said. With the Bengals in need of an upgrade at the safety position, this would be a great fit, although they would have to beat out other teams who figure to have interest in the hard hitting safety. The post Goldson open to playing elsewhere, with hopes of staying in San Francisco appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
