Dashon Goldson might not be on the market much longer. After drawing some interest around the NFL, Goldson could be heading to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are hoping to reach a long terms deal with the safety Dashon Goldson by Wednesday of this week.
The Bucs hope to reach a long-term agreement with Goldson that could be announced as early as Wednesday.

The Buccaneers have been looking to upgrade what ended up being the worst secondary in the NFL last season, and Goldson would without a doubt accomplish that. Goldson would become the Buccaneers new safety and play along side Mark Barron, who had a great rookie campaign for the team last season.
Goldson had been previously linked to the Bucs, so word that they’re hot after him should come as no surprise. The Detroit Lions were the other team closely attached to Goldson but it’s looking like the Buccaneers, who have a lot more money, will end up being the ones to snag Goldson off the open market. Detroit is preoccupied with signing Reggie Bush as well as upgrading in other areas as well.
If the Buccaneers land Goldson, it will mark two consecutive offseasons that the team has seemingly come out of nowhere to sign one of the top free agent targets on the market.
