Bucs trade Dashon Goldson to Washington

AP

Last year, Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson was available via trade.  And the Buccaneers instead traded safety Mark Barron, to the Rams.

This year, the Bucs have finally shipped Goldson elsewhere, to Washington.  PFT has confirmed that the Buccaneers have traded Goldson plus a 2016 seventh-round pick to Washington for a 2016 sixth-round pick.  The trade was first reported by Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

The move reunites Goldson with G.M. Scot McCloughan, who worked for the 49ers in 2007, when Goldson was drafted.

Goldson, who signed with the Buccaneers as a free agent in 2013, has a $7.5 million base salary for 2015.  Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there wasn’t much of a market for Goldson — and he would have been cut by the Buccaneers but for the emergence of a trade partner in Washington.  Which likely means that Goldson may be restructuring his deal in Washington.

As Stroud points out, it’s also possible that the Buccaneers will be paying $4 million in guaranteed salary that they would have owed Goldson if he’d been cut.  Per source, the $4 million is fully guaranteed, without offset.

With Barron and cornerback Darrelle Revis long gone, the trade of Goldson shows that second-year coach Lovie Smith is intent on acquiring players who can effectively run his Tampa Two scheme, where safeties arguably are even more important than cornerbacks.

UPDATE 10:14 a.m. ET:  Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Buccaneers will indeed pay the $4 million in fully guaranteed money that Goldson was due to make this year.

  1. I was excited when the Bucs signed Goldson because I just loved watching hard hitting safeties. However the NFL has pansied down the game and now Goldson is just a personal foul/fine machine (i.e. liability). His game no longer translates in the NFL which is a shame IMO and Goldson (at least here) was not able to modify his game to fit within the rules.

  2. Good move for both teams. Goldson was a terrible fit in Tampa and they just wanted to dump his contract, and Washington gets him for nearly nothing.

  3. Wow – I think I like Scotty.

    We have a year to test Goldson, 3.15 is not a bad price for an experienced safety.

    We gave a 6th, got a starting caliber (well at least much better than our starters from last year) and a 7th. That sounds like a really good trade.

  4. Due the idiots talking about how Redskins are trading away all their draft picks for overpriced veterans.

    Because we just know that that 6th round pick would have turned out to be a superstar for sure.

  5. “UPDATE 10:14 a.m. ET: Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Buccaneers will indeed pay the $4 million in fully guaranteed money that Goldson was due to make this year.”

    LOL at the “same old Washington comments”

    6th round pick only.
    TB pays the 4 million.

    Posters: GET A NEW SCHTICK!

  6. Considering what we had at safety last year (no one) this is a good trade.

    However knowing how things work around here, Goldson will flame out.

    Being a Washington fan prepares you for life.

  7. Has to be the happiest day of Goldson’s life. Playing safety in Lovie’s Tampa-2 scheme is a brutal gig that very few guys have actually been able to accomplish at any level of competency. There’s Mike Brown and… umm… umm…

    Goldson instantly becomes a better player because of this move.

  8. The 4 mil paid by Tampa, we pay a 6th next year, gives the skins a 2 year stop gap at free giving Scot more time to work the draft. Paea, Knighton, Francios, Johnson, Culliver, now Goldson and they hold the 5 pick likely to be used on Fowler or to trade down and scoop up more and some dilberts on here call these the same old skins? And save for Culliver, bargains across the board. New GM is making an IMMEDIATE impact. Stop with the uneducated comments.

  9. If I were interviewing potential head coaching candidates for a head coaching vacancy, the interview would abruptly end when they said they’d be running the Cover 2.

    This is what people don’t realize. We have no where to go but up. Spending a 6th round pick on a guy who can at least provide depth is actually a huge improvement for this team.

    We know that we are at least getting a backup quality Safety here…which you cannot assume picking a player in the 6th round at the draft.

  11. Yeah, keep typing Redskins. Nothing helps to get people on your side like annoying them. Love watching you ruin it for yourselves.

    It did just fine for the Cowboys last year using a bunch of fill-ins that are now signing new contracts

  14. Right now the starting free safety for the redskins was moving d hall from cb to fs. This was a seriously good move. And we didn’t change our quantity of picks next year, and we got Tampa to pay half his cap hit.

    Laugh all you want buy mcgloughan (mclovin) is building a winner. His last two teams? Three super bowl appearances in the last three years (sf /sea).

  15. Buccaneers are imploding the future of the franchise before their fans eyes.

    Winston as QB? Wow – this reminds me of the movie “Major League”, when the owner intentionally sabatoged the team to be horrible so they could move out of town.

  16. “The Redskins’ reputation as irresponsible spenders in free agency already was a bit outdated. It might finally die if the team continues to operate the way it has since Scot McCloughan became GM. Washington was the first team Riddick mentioned when I asked him which ones he liked to this point in the signing period. Riddick worked in scouting for the team from 2001-07 and has a greater appreciation for what held back the organization in the absence of a true GM.

    “Having been there so long and having seen the ultimate undisciplined approach and then watching them this year with McCloughan and [chief contract negotiator] Eric Schaffer working in lockstep to get great values, you can see they are doing it right,” Riddick said. “Culliver is the only one they really extended for financially, but if you are going to do it, do it with a corner and do it with someone you’re comfortable with. They still need a free safety and they were in the market for some guys who got out of their range, but that kind of discipline signals positive change.” “

  17. Goldson was good for big hits, which included 15-yard penalties, fines, and suspensions. But in coverage he was mediocre on a good day.

    Tampa was going to cut him if they couldn’t find a trade partner, so they probably would’ve been happy if they could get a washing machine in return

  18. i love all the bigots defending the team name.

    what’s it matter.
    the Washington “Last Placers”

  19. I hope you Redskin fans know that Goldson isn’t very good and you guys simply don’t have the supporting cast like he did in San Francisco for him to be successful. When he takes terrible angles and tackles like he’s in pop warner please think of IcebergSimpson.

    Wait until after they restructure his deal.

    If you want to put Washington down, play it safe and attack the QB position. Attacking them for “reckless Free Agent” spending is old and outdated and just doesn’t work any more.

    Sorry.

  21. Interesting; he is a starting caliber safety in Washington and a cap casualty for the team picking first in the draft. With Tampa picking up half his salary and his name is not being Adam Archuleta maybe this will work out.

    Dallas ranked number 19 in yards allowed and 15 in points allowed. Not exactly a great display of defense. Unless you have a ridiculously dominant front 4, the Cover 2 is outdated in Goodells NFL. As a base defense, the Cover 2 will rarely produce anything but average defenses.

  23. Apparently Redskins fans who are celebrating the trade stopped watching Goldson after he left the 49ers, because he’s been the worst safety in the league since that time.

    Let me repeat that; the Redskins traded a 6th round pick for the worst safety in the NFL and a 7th round pick.

    Goldson is just a name at this point. You could argue that the change in NFL rules impacted Goldson more than any other player in the league, but the fact remains that Goldson was terrible for the last two seasons.

    With the Bucs fronting the 4 million for this season, the Redskins have little to lose and everything to gain, but let’s not act like this is a game changing trade, because it’s not.

  24. All you PC baby’s are ruining this country. Waaa you said Redskins waaa. I’m Irish do I cry about Notre Dames fighting Irish leprechaun? No I don’t because I’m a man not a baby. Grow up and stop complaining about your feelings it’s childish.

    Apparently you havent been watching the Redskins because they have, without a doubt, had the worst safeties in football for some time. Ever heard of Bacarri Rambo, Kevin Barnes, Sha’reff Rashad, Dejon Gomes, Jose Gumbs, Trenton Richardson or Chris Horton? Of course you havent cause they suck. Goldson is like Ronnie Lott or Sean Taylor compared to whats been going on around here.

  27. I’m sorry, but how in the world is Washington still named that?!

    Listen, I’m an ACTUAL NATIVE AMERICAN. This name is extremely demeaning. I’m not crying about political correctness, but referring to my people with such racist, bigamist language is simply cruel. We are human beings, not a historical footnote.

    I’m sick of the word “offensive” being the key point of this debate. There is no reason anyone should argue for the side of keeping the name. I’m sorry but “this is what it means now” does not take away what the word stood for anymore than saying “Heritage, not hate” makes the Confederate flag acceptable. These are symbols of extreme hatred and reminders that people were demeaned, spat on, and at times butchered.

    Now go ahead and “thumbs down” my comment because you do want to change the name of your stupid football team. I’ll go on living life as a proud Native of this country.

    Whatever.

    If the Redskins sign expensive veterans, they are “the same old same old” team wasting money.

    If the Redskins sign lesser guys at a bargain, they are “getting guys who suck.”

    Either way folks will criticize.

    No Redskins fan I know is saying these guys are world beaters…only that they are grateful the team is finally trying to be responsible with how they are signing Free Agents at a good price and making incremental improvements. Do you disagree that the team is actually headed in the right direction, from the perspective of front office aquisitions? I repeat: NO Redskins fan I know thinks that these adds make the team a playoff team even. Just improved.

    Bottom line: we all just have to wait to see how this plays out on the field. Talk at this point basically means nothing. Talk that they are a playoff team doesn’t mean they are a playoff team. But to be fair talk that they will “always suck” equally does not mean they will be a perenial loser. The negative talk is just as knee jerk and unfounded as the positive talk.

    Maybe Dez should worry more about learning how to finish off a catch so the legion of Cowboys fans don’t have to whine for weeks on end about how they got “shafted” by the refs. SMH.

  40. He’s not bad. Physical safeties are in a cant win situation in today’s NFL, with it’s endless rules that a high speed player cant possibly process in game time. REDSKINS got a steal. And Lovie sucks as always.

  41. Basically we get a starting safety so the bucs could move up a round in next years draft…he will keep his salary this year but will probably have to sign a new deal next summer..it’s a win for the skins.

  42. Wow….bigbenh8tr!!!!

    I would assume you live in the Washington Metropolitan area due to your persistent comments on the skins. Get a life bro…..

    Bottom line…skins fan are not that naive to assume all of these moves will work out, but what the fans are excited about is that there is someone in the front office (specifically our new GM) that has very good football acumen, and has a history of turning franchises around into an consistent winner. The Goldson move was a good move in a sense that our GM is familiar with this guy, and believes he can bring some toughness to this defense, which has been lacking since Haslett took over our D. We know Goldson is a stop gap for what could be a FS being drafted and groomed for a couple of years. We know this is still a rebuilding year, but at least we now have some confidence that our GM will pick players in FA, and the draft that will help turn this team around down the road. We just want to consistently competitive every year. Just like any fan around this league.

  43. Redskins get a GM who recently built 2 contenders 1 of which won a Super Bowl with the core players he got.
    The Eagles make their idiot coach who has and never will won anything the GM. This coach/ GM then goes and gets rid of all the core players.

    Dear illiterate,

    The Bucs sent Goldson + a 7th rounder to the Redskins for a 6th rounder. That means the Redskins swapped 6th and 7th round picks with the Bucs plus they got Goldson. That is literally the lowest price you can pay in a trade…6th and 7th rounders in the next year’s draft.

    Goldson is no all pro but the Tampa 2 fit made him look even worse. It is likely being restructured as a two year deal and options are running out in this free agency season on who you can spend money on. So the Redskins pay less than $2 mil a year on a position they were literally worst in the league at last year. Dont you remember Mike Evans running uncovered against the Skins multiple times last year in his career game?

    Anyway…good luck with learning to read…and being a diva. This is a low profile move by both teams but after a 12 pack of Busch light and still being on a high from Wrestlemania I guess you took it pretty serious.

  47. Goldson is like Ronnie Lott or Sean Taylor compared to whats been going on around here.

  49. Championship! What a joke. Tampa CHOSE to pay him 4 million to leave, and this is a good signing? His contract was purposely structured that way in the event it didn’t work out. And obviously it didn’t work out.

    This from PFF:
    According to Pro Football Focus, Goldson has graded out as the worst safety in the NFL over the last two seasons. He allowed an opposing passer rating of over 120.0 in both seasons and contributed next to nothing against the run.

    Not only that, Goldson was at the bottom of the league in terms of tackling efficiency, with lots of missed tackles.

    Good luck, 4skin fans. Actually, forget the good luck part – you reap what you sow. The NFC East basement has never looked like more of a sure thing for you in 2015.

    Keep up the good work, Danny Boy, and give yourself a raise while your at it, Snyder. Now that the $41 million guaranteed $ you paid Haynesworth (the worst FA signing of all time) stings just a little less, go ahead and splurge!

  50. Imagine, if you would, what it must be like being an Eagles fan. Zero rings in a division that 12 of them. It’s a shame that Roger Goodell doesn’t contract them…..embarrassing team. Stop being a dumpster fire Philly!

  51. This is an article about the incompetence in Washington not Philadelphia. Let all of us know when the last time that Washington had back to back winning seasons was again?

  55. Low risk, high reward player. He is no longer an All-Pro, however, I doubt he is as bad as the last two years indicate. I expect him to be a steady presence in the secondary with a few big plays sprinkled in here and there. Outside of maybe one game (Dallas-Merriweather), we got absolutely nothing out of the safety position. All we need is a stopgap at this point, there was no way we could sufficiently fill all the holes in one season under McC. He is doing a great job thus far with not flashy, but solid moves. That’s why the haters are out. HTTR!!!

    That’s in a new defense playing for a coach that wants to trade you.

  58. This is a low risk – high payoff kind of move. By getting the bucs to pay the guaranteed part of his salary, we can still cut him and owe nothing. So we swapped 6th and 7th round picks, and get to see if Goldson can start for us at Safety. If he can he is worth the 3.5 mil, or we can restructure the deal. Anybody watching the Redskins last year knows that they couldn’t cover at all. Secondary help was sorely needed so hopefully this works out good.

    Nice move.

  59. The REDSKINS have made a decent trade here. Goldston is second in tackles in a poorly fitting scheme. Anyone would be better for the REDSKINS than espn’s ryan clark when he played for the REDSKINS.
