Fined nearly a half million dollars last season for illegal hits, Dashon Goldson took the interesting step of hiring a tackling coach this offseason. It may not be the worst move; Goldson was tenth in missed tackles among 85 qualifying safeties according to Pro Football Focus' metrics. The likelihood of more Tampa-2 looks with Lovie Smith as head coach will keep Goldson around the same mark as last season as far as tackles (50-10 range), so relying on him as a week to week option is not advised. A DB3 in only the best tackle matchups. (May 13)
