49ers S Goldson signs one-year franchise tender

The San Francisco 49ers announced on Thursday that safety Dashon Goldson has signed his one-year franchise tender.

Goldson's tender is worth a reported $6.2 million. The two sides failed to reach an agreement on a multi-year extension before the July 16 deadline to sign franchised players to new contracts.

Goldson is coming off the best season of his five-year career, ranking second among NFL safeties with six interceptions. The 27-year-old also recorded 67 tackles over 14 regular-season starts to earn his first-ever Pro Bowl nod.

A fourth-round selection by the Niners in the 2007 draft, Goldson has started 46 games and garnered 11 interceptions over the past three seasons.
