Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson gears up for former 49ers team

He has gone from winning on a one-year deal with San Francisco to that multiyear commitment he long coveted, across the country with the losing Buccaneers.

A tough tradeoff at times, indeed. Yet the veteran safety believes the Bucs can build their young team into a contender much the way the 49ers have recently, capped by last season's return to the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years.

When the 49ers (9-4) take the field in Tampa on Sunday, they will see that familiar face and hard-hitting defender in the Bucs secondary. Goldson is determined to do his best to disrupt Colin Kaepernick, Vernon Davis, Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree in the passing game.

"Of course, I look forward to every Sunday. I'm not looking at it like that," he said. "I'm sure my emotions will be flying come Sunday. Right now I'm just trying to get the game plan down and focus on what I have to do."

Goldson landed a $41.25 million, five-year contract with the Bucs during free agency last March.
