One day after working out with the Patriots, safety Dashon Goldson will return to San Francisco.

PFT’s Mike Florio reports via a league source that Goldson will be back with the 49ers on a one-year deal.  A starter for the last 32 games in San Francisco, Goldson joins a suddenly crowded field at safety.

Donte Whitner was signed to start, presumably on the strong side. Reggie Smith was lining up as the starter at free safety and was off to a strong start to training camp.  Veteran Madieu Williams, signed recently, could be the odd man out.
