Report: Dashon Goldson in Philadelphia Eagles' sights

Such a move has made sense since the Eagles hired Tom Gamble from San Francisco this offseason to serve as vice president of player personnel.

A team official told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Goldson wants $8 million per year. He's coming off consecutive Pro Bowl seasons and was a first-team All Pro in 2012.

The Eagles have $29 million in cap space and will have even more if Nnamdi Asomughais released. There are cheaper safety options between free agency -- Adrian Wilson and Dawan Landry were released Friday -- and the draft, but Goldson is the class of the group.

The signing would bring an aggressive, physical presence to the Eagles back end that has been missing since Brian Dawkins left after the 2008 season. That's the kind of the mentality that new coach Chip Kelly loves.
