Dashon Goldson officially can put up that sign: He soon will be open for business.

The All-Pro safety will hit the open market when free agency begins next Tuesday after he wasn’t designated the 49ers‘ franchise player by the NFL’s 1 p.m. deadline Monday.

Goldson, who received the $6.2 million franchise tag last year, wanted to avoid the one-year designation this year in favor of landing a long-term contract. Goldson would have been tagged at a price of $7.45 million in 2013.

Goldson was sweating it out, even beyond the deadline. At 1:06 p.m., he said, via a text to The Chronicle, that he didn’t know if he’d been tagged. After he received the news, he texted, “Hopefully something good comes out of this.”

For Goldson, a Los Angeles native, that would mean staying with the 49ers, who drafted him in the fourth round in 2007. Two days after the Super Bowl, he said he was prepared to go elsewhere to get the multiyear deal he was seeking.

On Monday, he made it clear, via Twitter, that he’d prefer to stay put, writing, “I’m very thankful I didn’t get the franchise tag again but still hopeful this means something long term with the San Francisco 49ers!”

Goldson, who turns 29 in September, figures to generate far more interest than he did as an unrestricted free agent in 2011, when he returned to San Francisco on a one-year, $2 million deal.

He since has earned the first two Pro Bowl berths of his six-year career and was first-team All-Pro this past season. He also has remained durable, starting 62 of 64 games since 2009, while earning a reputation as one of the NFL’s most ferocious tacklers.

Goldson is no doubt seeking a contract in line with the league’s top-paid safeties. Kansas City’s Eric Berry, the highest paid at the position, signed a six-year, $60 million deal in 2010 with $34 million guaranteed.

Do the 49ers place a similar value on Goldson? In November, Goldson said the franchise hadn’t hinted at making him a part of its long-term plans.

“I’m doing the right things on and off the field, but I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t hear it. I don’t hear stuff like ‘We’re really happy.’ I don’t get that assurance. So you don’t ever know. You don’t know what’s going to happen.”
