DASHON GOLDSON NEWS

Three safeties the Washington Redskins should be considering in the NFL Draft

Washington will be without both their starting safeties from last season, which, trust me, is a good thing. As of right now, Dashon Goldson and Duke Ihenacho are set to be holding down the safety position, but the Redskins should probably think about upgrading. Those guys may have been good two or three years ago, but they’ve been miserable the last couple of years. Goldson was...

Will Redskins Continue Focus On Defense?

Has Washington Redskins GM Scot McCloughan done what no one else can?

Last month, I rendered an early verdict on Scot McCloughan’s work as the General Manager of the Washington Redskins. I praised McCloughan for several signings that showed a measured, smart, value-centric approach, as opposed to the big, splashy, “overpay-for-a-name” style that we’ve seen more than once during the Dan Snyder Era in Washington. Since that time, McCloughan has...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade S Dashon Goldson to the Washington Redskins

Trade for Tampa Bay: Goldson topped my list of cap casualty candidates for the Buccaneers. In fact, I was confused why he wasn’t cut earlier in the off-season, a move that would have saved the Buccaneers 4 million in cash and cap space. The Buccaneers signed Goldson to a 5-year, 41.25 million dollar contract 2 off-seasons ago and he proceeded to be one of the worst safeties in...

Redskins make trade with Bucs to acquire Dashon Goldson

Dashon Goldson is one of my current favorite safeties in the NFL, mainly because he always held the back end down for the 49ers (my favorite team), but because of the reckless abandon he plays with once he enters those white lines. Goldson played the last two years with the Buccaneers after starting his career with the 49ers and today he was traded to the Washington Redskins for...
