Source: 49ers and S Dashon Goldson Only $1M Apart

Pro Bowl safety Dashon Goldson and the San Francisco 49ers aren't far apart on a new deal, but they still haven't reached an agreement.

Goldson was given the 49ers' franchise tag earlier this year and is scheduled to earn $6.212 million this year if the sides can't come to an agreement by July 16.

A source told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area on Monday that Goldson wants a contract with an annual average of $8 million. The source also said the 49ers probably are not willing to go more than $7 million per year.

Secondary coach Ed Donatell isn't too worried though,
"This happens all over football," Donatell said. "Nobody has a complete group. We have as complete as anybody. Anytime a guy can't play, we look for the advantage to train another guy to give you a Plan B and C and so forth. But his (Goldson's) history is, when he's ready to go, he's ready to go and he plays well."
 With Goldson being a no-show and the other starting safety Donte Whitner sitting out practices, C.J. Spillman and rookie Trenton Robinson have received the majority of snaps in OTAs.
