Did Dashon Goldson go too far?

September, 30, 2013
TAMPA, Fla. -- When Dashon Goldson had his one-game suspension overturned in Week 3, it didn’t take the Tampa Bay safety off the NFL’s radar.

If anything, Goldson, who got off with a $100,000 fine, likely was being monitored even more closely by the NFL office. That’s not a good thing because Goldson might have crossed the line.

Goldson was flagged for unnecessary roughness for a hit in Sunday’s 13-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It’s a safe bet that league officials will be reviewing that play very shortly.

Since 2009, Goldson has been flagged for a league-high 16 personal fouls. The league is well aware of Goldson’s history and, this time, his punishment could be more than a fine.
