Tampa Bay lands Dashon Goldson

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have come out of the free-agent gate fast for the second straight year. They have agreed to a five-year contract with former San Francisco safety Dashon Goldson.

I’m going to run (well, actually drive) over to One Buccaneer Place for the introductory press conference. I’ll be back with more on Goldson after that.

Meantime, here’s the scouting report I did on Goldson earlier. Also, I’ll close this with a quote on Goldson from NFC West colleague Mike Sando -- “Put together the highlight film of the Bucs’ 10 biggest defensive hits for next season and I promise you Goldson will have at least six of them.’’
