Saints News, 10/22/14: Saints Bring Back Guard/Center Eric Olsen

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: The New Orleans Saints brought back guard/center Eric Olsen on Tuesday -- a possible sign that they're expecting starting center Jonathan Goodwin to miss some time with an unspecified leg injury. Olsen was with the Saints in 2012, playing in all 16 games and making four starts as an extra lineman. He lost his backup swingman job to rookie Tim Lelito last year, however, after being placed on injured reserve with an unspecified injury at the start of the 2013 season.
