"I think those guys are excited about me being there and I'm sure they want me back," Goldson said. "They've expressed how much they want me back. I want to be back there. Like I said, if I'm not there, I'd be shocked."
Goldson, 27, returned to the 49ers last season on a one-year deal, which the Chronicle reported was worth $1 million in base salary. According to the report, Goldson had previously rejected a five-year contract from the team.
It's possible the 49ers could use the franchise tag on Goldson, which is expected to be worth around $6.4 million for safeties.
Goldson was named to his first Pro Bowl last season after tying with Carlos Rodgers for the team lead with six interceptions. He has been a full-time starter the last three seasons, starting all 46 games he has played.
