Eagles free agency rumors: Dashon Goldson won't end up in Philadelphia says Schefter

Scott Halleran

According to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, the Eagles won't sign the former 49ers free agent Safety.

Last week there were some reports that the Eagles would be interested in free agent Safety Dashon Goldson.

According to the latest rumor, however, Goldson won't end up with the Philadelphia Eagles after all. ESPN Insider Adam Schefter appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic today and had the following to say:

Goldson is viewed by some as one of the top Safety options on the market. It comes as no surprise that he's looking to be paid like one too. At $8M to $10M a year, though, he's probably too expensive for the Eagles taste, and that could be a good thing.

Although he's better than what the Eagles currently have at safety, he's probably not worth top Safety money here. He covers well and has been able to force turnovers but he will soon be 29 and isn't an efficient tackler. There might be better Safety options, especially in terms of value, elsewhere in free agency or even the NFL draft.
