The San Francisco 49ers weren’t overly thrilled letting go of safety Dashon Goldson, but their loss is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ gain.
I’m guessing New York Jets wide receiver Jeff Cumberland is wishing Goldson had stayed with San Francisco because Goldson’s hard hitting ways are already paying dividends.
As Cumberland was coming across the middle, the hard hitting (understatement?!?) Goldson zeroed in on Cumberland then just absolutely leveled him. I mean, a straight up assault.
You can watch the hit here:
The hit was of the helmet to helmet variety, though, was more of the crown to the mask rather than crown to crown. Not that really matters though as Goldson will undoubtedly be hearing from the league in regards to the hit – not exactly something new for the powerful Goldson.
Thankfully, nobody was any worse after the hit, despite Cumberland taking a few moments to gather his marbles.
Just an absolute murking. Shame it wasn’t completely clean as that would have only made it that much better, but, still a destructive hit.
