Dashon Goldson hoping for a multi-year deal, but he hasn't heard anything

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

Dashon Goldson has been great this season for the San Francisco 49ers, but he hasn't heard anything from them on a potential extension.

The San Francisco 49ers have some decisions to make regarding free safety Dashon Goldson. After he, once again, received limited looks this offseason, the 49ers brought him back on a one-year deal via the franchise tag. And as one of his biggest critics over the years, I must say: he's been very good.

In a recent quote, via Eric Branch of SFGate.com, Goldson spoke on a potential multi-year deal "Hopefully, it's here, but it's hard to say. I'm doing the right things on and off the field, but I don't know."

He followed that up by saying he hasn't heard anything from the team regarding an extension and, at least through text, it's the same reactionary stuff you see from players these days. While it seems like Goldson is sort of ... complaining about the lack of contact, everybody knows the 49ers aren't going to sign him to an extension during the season, or at least, during the first half of the season.

It's just not the way they do things. I also think Goldson is probably going to be asking for more money than he ever has, and I'm not sure I'd pay him that. I firmly believe that Goldson deserves to be paid like one of the top guys through half a season thus far, and this is the first time I've ever said that. But I'm just going to assume he's going to be asking, once again, for way more than he's worth.

With his increased level of play, I put the chances of him returning as slim. I'm interested to see what the rest of you think about this, though. Sound off in the comments.
