After first-round pick Keanu Neal suffered a knee injury that will cost him between 3-to-4 weeks, the Falcons needed some additional help at safety, so they've opted to bring in Goldson. The nine-year veteran spent the 2015 campaign with the Redskins, notching 11 takles, one forced fumble and an interception over 15 games. He should slot in as a depth option behind Kemal Ishmael until Neal is healthy.
Goldson joins a number of notable former Redskins teammates in leaving the team this offseason, as Washington looks to free up salary-cap space. Despite the $8 million he was owed this coming season, Goldson is coming off a career-high 110 tackles to go with one interception this past year. With that sort of production, the 31-year-old should garner significant interest on the open market.
Dashon Goldson (shoulder/rib) is listed as active Sunday against the Packers.
Although sore ribs forced limited showings in practice this week, Goldson will assume his typical spot at strong safety, from which he tallied 110 tackles (72 solo), two fumble recoveries, one forced fumble, and a pick-six in 15 games this season.
Dashon Goldson (ribs/shoulder) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, ESPN's John Keim reports.
Goldson missed the Washington Redskins ' regular season finale against the Cowboys and still appears to be suffering from some soreness in his ribs, but could still make the start Sunday, depending on how he feels during warm-ups. If Goldson is unable to play, the Redskins will likely fill his spot with some combination of DeAngelo Hall and Jeron Johnson.
Dashon Goldson (shoulder/rib) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, the Washington Post reports.
Goldson's regular-season campaign thus concludes with a fantasy-friendly 110 tackles in 15 games. He'll look to return to the field in Washington's playoff opener next weekend.
