The 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 as 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 $100000. On the day his ban was rescinded Goldson said he would try to play smarter. "I know there are going to be a lot of eyes on me from now on. And that's OK. I just have to be smart" Goldson said. "I'm not trying to hurt my team and I'm definitely not trying to hurt myself with the way I play."
