(ESPN) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a move to upgrade their secondary, agreeing to terms with safety Dashon Goldson on a five-year contract, league sources tell ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The deal is worth $41.25 million, including $22 million guaranteed.
Goldson was a key member of the San Francisco 49ers' defense and had 69 tackles and three interceptions for the NFC champions, earning his second Pro Bowl spot.
Goldson earned his first Pro Bowl nod in 2011 when he tied for the team lead with six interceptions. The team named him its franchise player for 2012, giving him a raise to $6.2 million last season.
"Big ups to my boy @thehawk38
," 49ers linebacker Larry Grant posted on Twitter. "Man it's definitely well deserved and a long time coming folks. Congrats to you my boy."
The 28-year-old has 346 tackles, 14 interceptions and five forced fumbles in 81 career games.
San Francisco may already be making plans to replace Goldson.
Free agent safety Charles Woodson is scheduled to meet with the 49ers in the Bay Area on Wednesday.
Agent Carl Poston confirmed the meeting. Woodson, released by Green Bay on Feb. 15 with two years remaining on his contract, has one important thing in common with 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh: They're former Michigan stars.
Woodson is familiar with Northern California, too. He spent the first eight years of his career with the Oakland Raiders, who selected him No. 4 overall in the 1998 draft. Woodson hopes to play for a contender.
