ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Oakland Raiders are in a bidding war with Bay Area rival San Francisco over 49ers’ safety Dashon Goldson.


The 49ers want the talented Goldson back and he will not be cheap. The Raiders’ pursuit of him means a few things.

First, it means the Raiders are not afraid of being a player in free agency despite a pre-lockout signing flurry of their own players, a tight salary-cap situation and several in-house priorities.

It also likely means they don’t want to pursue free-agent safety Michael Huff. Or , at least, they are looking at adding Goldson first. It could also be another indication that cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha will be going elsewhere.

Goldson would likely team with Tyvon Branch if he signs with Oakland. Goldson is a good athletic player. He had a solid, not great season in 2010. ... on-goldson

I think they were showing interest in two guys, Huff and Goldson, trying to get one of them to sign on the low end of their value. Looks like Huff was the winner as they have now indeed signed him to return next season.
