The San Francisco 49ers and all-pro safety Dashon Goldson have been attempting to work out a new contract extension in recent months. There's no denying that both sides are interested in working out a longterm deal, but this latest update from Matt Miaocco of CSN Bay Area suggests the talks are going nowhere.
Pro Bowl safety Dashon Goldson, the 49ers' franchise player, and the club have not made any progress toward a multi-year contract, a source told CSNBayArea.com on Friday.
Goldson and the 49ers have until a Monday deadline to reach an agreement on a long-term contract.
After Monday, Goldson would only be allowed to sign the one-year, $6.212 million franchise tender with the 49ers. The sides would not be able to negotiate a multi-year extension until after the final regular-season game.
"I just hope something will get done," Goldson said on SiriusXM NFL Radio this week. "And if not, I'll still be a 49er."
It's good to see the two sides remain level headed while negotiating -- far too often do relationships between a player and his team get ruined because of dollars and cents. 49ers fans can only hope Goldson and the 49ers continue working on a deal throughout the weekend and they can come to an agreement shortly.
