San Francisco safety Dashon Goldson has been fined $10,000 for a hit in the 49ers’ win over the Packers, and he says he understands what he did wrong.
The NFL has confirmed that Goldson was fined for a hit on Green Bay’s DuJuan Harris. Goldson said he understands why he got a 15-yard penalty on the play.
“It was a good call by the ref,” Goldson told the San Jose Mercury News. “If it was helmet-to-helmet, good call. But it wasn’t late.”
Goldson has had five unnecessary roughness penalties this season, but he says he isn’t a dirty player.
“I just play football, at the end of the day,” Goldson said. “I don’t try to hurt anybody.”
