Bucs_Dashon_Goldson_2013The NFL is discussing whether to suspend Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson for his latest helmet-to-helmet hit Sunday, according to a league source.

Goldson’s hit on Arizona Cardinals receiver Jaron Brown was not as egregious the hit on New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles that drew a one-game suspension earlier this season. Goldson, however, may have lost the benefit of the doubt with the league because of his history of illegal hits.

Even though his suspension for the hit on Sproles was overturned, Goldson was fined $100,000.
