With changes reportedly coming at the safety spot, what does that mean for Brandon Meriweather? (FILE:Icon/SMI)
Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe reported yesterday that 49ers safety Dashon Goldson visited Foxboro on Sunday for a workout, but it looks like he's decided to stay out on the West Coast. reports that the free agent has re-signed with his former team on a 1-year deal.

The safety position is one to watch in the coming weeks, with the team opting to part ways with Brandon McGowan, and they reportedly aren't happy with the position.  Some reports suggest that Brandon Meriweather's days may also be numbered, which could mean we could see more from what has already been an interesting start to this season here in New England.

Meriweather had his fair share of troubles last season, even admitting that he had been benched for trying to do things his way and "improvising" more than he should have.  Whether or not that's enough to make Bill Belichick part ways with the safety remains to be seen, but it sounds like there are changes coming.
