Saints News, 6/2/14: Report - Saints To Bring Back Jonathan Goodwin

New, comments

The Saints are expected to bring back center Jonathan Goodwin to help the offensive line, according to NFL.com reporter Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Mike Triplett. Goodwin, who is 35, played with the Saints for five seasons, from 2006 through 2010. In 2010 he left and joined the San Francisco 49ers. Goodwin could be a safety net should Tim Lelito, who only started two games at guard last season, have difficulty making the transition to center. In other news, Satch is going on vacation, so I'll see you all next Thursday.
