The Tampa Bay Buccaneers dealt safety Dashon Goldson to the Washington Redskins on Friday
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith continues to build the defense in his vision, and sometimes that means doing some subtraction. He definitely subtracted on Friday when the team agreed to deal safety Dashon Goldson to the Washington Redskins for a sixth-round draft pick.
Goldson, 30, began his career in the league in 2007 with the San Francisco 49ers. He spent the first six years of his career out in San Francisco, before he was offered a pretty lucrative deal to join the Buccaneers prior to the 2013 season. He only ended up spending two seasons with the Bucs.
As Albert Breer also pointed out, the previous attempt to revamp the secondary back in 2012 has turned out to have been a pretty bad move.
But, again, this is a defense that Lovie Smith is going to build in his vision and changes like this need to be made at times.
The Redskins, though, are getting a pretty solid player that still has some gas left in the tank at just 30 years old. With the passing offenses in the NFC East, they could certainly use the help back there.
Last season Goldson finished with 81 tackles in 14 games. In his career, Goldson has compiled 499 tackles and 15 interceptions.
