Tampa Bay's Dashon Goldson goes back to school to learn tackling

Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson is going back to school -- for tackling.

After losing more than $455,000 to league-imposed fines last season for illegal hits, Goldson has hired tackling guru Bobby Hosea, who owns Train 'Em Up Academy this offseason to teach him how to tackle properly, according to Yahoo!Sports.

It sounds as if Hosea will be teaching some of the techniques used by the Heads Up Football program as he tries to take the head out of Goldson's game.

The tipping point for Goldson was criticism he received from New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
