San Francisco 49ers Sign Jonathan Goodwin

SEATTLE WA - JANUARY 08: Jonathan Goodwin #76 of the New Orleans Saints sits on the bench late in the fourth quarter before losing to the Seattle Seahawks 41-36 during the 2011 NFC wild-card playoff game at Qwest Field on January 8 2011 in Seattle Washington.

The San Francisco 49ers have signed Jonathan Goodwin to a three year deal. The news comes via Adam Schefter:

49ers reached agreement with center Jonathan Goodwin on a 3-year, $10.9 million deal, including $4 million guaranteed.

Wow. I guess that means Payton and Brees have faith in Matt Tennant. He's certainly going to be someone to watch during the preseason, to see if there are any problems. I was hoping Goodwin would sign with the Saints again, but the 49ers probably gave him a better deal than the Saints were willing to offer.

Goodwin's absence is the first change on the offensive line in two seasons. Though he wasn't a dominant center, he has been good and has developed a good relationship with Drew Brees. We'll have to see if Matt Tennant can do the same thing.
