(AUDIO) NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport: Dashon Goldson Doesn’t Have to Target Receivers to be a Good Player

Ian Rapoport 9-17

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport broke the news on Monday that Dashon Goldson would be suspended by the NFL for Sunday’s game against the Patriots because of his illegal hit on the Saints Darren Sproles. Rapoport joined Booger and Rich to talk about the suspensions.

Rapoport said that Goldson’s $30,000 fine from the NFL after his Week 1 personal foul hit against the Jets was a clear message from the NFL telling Goldson and the Bucs coaching staff that this won’t tolerated again. Rapoport noted that in the letter to Goldson from the NFL said he made no attempt to tackle and was clearly targeting Darren Sproles with his helmet.

So what happens if this happens again? Rapoport says Goldson would likely see more suspensions. He noted that Goldson is a great player and doesn’t have to launch himself at receivers to get the job done. He’s talented enough as it is.

Goldson will appeal the suspension and that hearing will be today and the Bucs should know if they have their safety against the Patriots on Sunday.

Rapoport says there seems to be a disconnect between Greg Schiano and Josh Freeman. He’s surprised to hear Schiano talk about Freeman and address issues like him being late to events. Rapoport said that despite the issues, the Bucs are very close to being 2-0 and winning games can help solve this issues.
