So, even as dominant as he was last season as the anchor of the NFL's best-run "D," the 25-year-old understands why his unique skill set might not command the attention it deserves -- especially in the middle of a star-studded unit with Pro Bowlers at all three levels. And, like former teammate Jay Cutler, Goldman cares not for the pub, anyway. After all, he's fresh off what he calls, "collectively, as a team" the best professional season of his career thus far, on the heels of signing a four-year contract extension with $25 million guaranteed that made him the fifth-highest-paid nose guard in football.
