Dashon Goldson – FA Speculation

Jordan Raanan of NJ.com has a report up today involving the Eagles and free agent Safety Dashon Goldson.  Per the report:

“The Eagles are expected to have interest in the free-agent safety, according to multiple league sources.”

Expected is the key word.  This doesn’t say Goldson will be a priority target.  This really is more connecting the dots…Eagles need S help…Goldson is on the market…and the Eagles hired Tom Gamble, who helped bring Goldson to SF. 

Goldson makes a ton of sense, but I do wonder if the Eagles will go hard after him. He is a good player, coming off of 2 very good years.  The problem is that Goldson isn’t an impact type of player, but will require big money.  Goldson isn’t a game-changer.  He’s a notch below.  That still makes him better than anything the Eagles have, but you do want to be careful in FA about overpaying players and then having false expectations. 

Goldson isn’t going to cure the secondary.  He can make it better.  He might make more sense for a good secondary that is trying to be great, where he’d have talent around him. 

After the last few years, I don’t think I’ll be mad at the Eagles no matter who they sign or what they do.  Safety must be upgraded in a big way.

    Keep the news coming, Tommy. Maybe you can put Mike Florio out of business(or have a cable network buy you out)

    Couldn’t it also be viewed as Gamble helped develop the plan to let him walk before he left SF? Would Gamble have been part of that conversation?

      You can bet that SF had a feeling going back to last year that Goldson might leave. He turned down an extension from them. Huge hint that he might be out the door.

    I don’t know… for the kind of money he is asking, he needs to be a real difference maker. And I’m far from certain that he is.

    The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this 1. I mean, I know it was my option to read, but I essentially thought youd have some thing fascinating to say. All I hear is usually a bunch of whining about some thing that you simply could fix in the event you werent too busy looking for attention.
