NFL considering suspending Dashon Goldson


The NFL is considering suspending Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson following his helmet-to-helmet hit in Sunday’s match up against the New Orleans Saints.

In week one against the New York Jets, Goldson delivered a big hit to Jets wide receiver Jeff Cumberland. That hit, classified as a helmet-to-helmet hit as well resulted in a $30,000 fine. Obviously that didn’t deter Goldson or make him feel the urge to be more cautious this past Sunday.

Fining a player for helmet-to-helmet two weeks in a row doesn’t show much promise in changing his behavior on the field. Since 2010, Goldson leads the league in personal fouls with 15, including multiple helmet-to-helmet hits.
