SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Dashon Goldson has gone from winning on a one-year deal with San Francisco to that multiyear contract he long coveted, across the country with the losing Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
A tough tradeoff at times, indeed. Yet the veteran safety believes the Bucs can build their young team into a contender much the way the 49ers have recently, capped by last season's return to the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years.
When the 49ers (9-4) take the field in Tampa on Sunday, they will see that familiar face and hard-hitting defender in the Bucs secondary. Goldson is determined to do his best to disrupt Colin Kaepernick, Vernon Davis, Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree in the passing game.
Goldson landed a $41.25 million, five-year contract during free agency last March.
