The Buccaneers have reportedly agreed to terms on a five-year deal with safety Dashon Goldson, according to Adam Schefter on twitter.

Meanwhile, CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco reports that the 49ers never even made an effort to bring the six-year veteran back to San Francisco.

The Lions continue to make a significant splash in the free agent market, with the signing of safety Glover Quin making it four signings on the day after Chris Houston (re-signing), Jason Jones and Reggie Bush.

The 27-year-old Quin has spent the last four seasons with the Texans after being drafted in the fourth round by Houston in 2009.  Quin recorded 64 tackles, two interceptions and a sack in 16 games with the Texans last season, piling up 250 total tackles over his four-year NFL career.

Omar Kelly and John Clayton have since reported that the deal will be for five years and $65 million (13 million per year), with $30 million guaranteed.
