Dashon Goldson Remains Confident In Long-Term Deal With 49ers

San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson has been nusy this offseason, though as the team's franchise player has been keeping to himself until a new deal has been reached.

"It's been kind of lonely," Goldson said Tuesday in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio's "Late Hits."

"I'd love to be there with my teammates, without a doubt. Unfortunately I'm on the business side of things (right now). It's just one of those things. But I'm feeling good."

Regardless, Goldson remains confident that he can work something out with the 49ers.

Goldson, who will earn upwards of $6.212 million for the 2012 season, is the team's lone franchise player. If he and Niners brass can work out a multi-year deal by Monday. If not, than only a one-year deal can occur and negotiations must wait until the final regular-season matchup.

Goldson isn't worried about the process though, knowing that no matter what he's still going to be in San Francisco:

"Any guy would love a long-term, six years," Goldson said. "I played on a one-year (contract) last year after a four-year deal. One year is not what any football player wants because we all know what we put our bodies through and what we do for our football teams and stuff like that.

"But it's all good. . . . I just hope something will get done. And if not, I'll still be a 49er."
