No suspension, fine likely for Dashon Goldson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson isn't being suspended for his latest illegal hit, according to the NFL.

Goldson was flagged for hitting a defenseless receiver Sunday when he struck Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Jaron Brown. Goldson delivered a shoulder blow.

Goldson has been fined $130,000 this year, including a $100,000 fine that was overturned on appeal and replaced the suspension.

Goldson is a hard-hitting player who plays with an edge. He's in the NFL crosshairs, though, with every hit whether illegal or borderline.
