With free agency officially beginning on Tuesday, the rumors and discussions start building up.
One of the first reports to hit the waves this morning comes from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who says that the Eagles, Lions and Buccaneers are interested in 49ers free agent safety Dashon Goldson.
The Lions and Buccaneers are considered the favorites to land Goldson, with the 49ers maintaining some interest in bringing him back.
Goldson is expected to be one of the hottest commodities in the free agent market, and there will undoubtedly be a bidding war for him.
Despite tweeting that he would like to sign a long-term contract with the 49ers, he is likely to take his services elsewhere.
He made it clear that he wants to return to the 49ers, but ominously added, “I’m open to all 32 teams.”
Head coach Jim Harbaugh thinks Goldson deserves a long-term deal as well.
“He’s somebody I think you reward,” he said.
