Saints News, 8/25/14: Jonathan Goodwin Feels 13th Camp Has Been His Best

From Mike Triplett: "Jonathan Goodwin said he knows it's probably hard for people to believe. But, the New Orleans Saints center said, 'In 13 years, I think this was my best training camp.' Goodwin said that goes for how he's been performing as well as how healthy he's feeling and how quickly his body is still moving at age 35. Clearly, Goodwin has been revitalized by his return to the Saints after spending the past three seasons with the San Francisco 49ers." Has Goody beat out Tim Lelito for the starting center job?
