Saints C Jonathan Goodwin was forced from the team's Week 7 game with the Lions with a lower-leg injury.

Goodwin had his left leg rolled up on late in the second quarter. He had to be helped off the field, and was carted into the locker room. Goodwin is out for the rest of the game. Tim Lelito will fill in at center.

Saints C Jonathan Goodwin has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

The veteran suffered the injury in Sunday's win. It had the looks of a multi-week issue when Goodwin went down. The Saints will now roll with second-year UDFA Tim Lelito in the middle. Lelito played 176 snaps as a rookie, grading out negatively in Pro Football Focus' ratings. He showed well against the Vikings, however. It might not end up being a huge downgrade for Drew Brees.

Saints C Jonathan Goodwin was forced from Sunday's game against the Vikings with a left-leg issue.

Goodwin could put very little weight on his foot as he was helped off the field. He was quickly carted to the locker room. Tim Lelito is now in the game at center.

Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed Jonathan Goodwin will compete with second-year UDFA Tim Lelito at center.

"You are never just given a position," Payton said. "Tim has done a lot of good things and we are excited about his progress, and a guy like Jonathan who has played a long time, I think it’ll make both of them better." Although Goodwin is 35, he played with Drew Brees from 2006-10, and remained a useful player in 2013. He has a strong shot at beating out Lelito.

Saints agreed to terms with C Jonathan Goodwin, formerly of the 49ers.

Second-year UDFA Tim Lelito is penciled in lightly as the Saints' starting center, but Goodwin will give him a run for his money. Although Goodwin is now 35, he was Drew Brees' pivot from 2006-2010 with New Orleans, and graded as a top-14 center in Pro Football Focus' 2013 ratings. He was top-ten per PFF in 2012.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Saints are expected to sign free agent C Jonathan Goodwin.

Per RapSheet, the Goodwin deal "should happen this week." Goodwin is familiar with Sean Payton's offense after spending the 2006-2010 seasons in New Orleans. He will be expected to compete with Tim Lelito for the starting job.

ESPN Saints reporter believes there's a "good chance" the team signs free agent C Jonathan Goodwin.

Goodwin visited the Saints last month. They're the only team to show any known interest in the 35-year-old. Tim Lelito is penciled in as the starter for now. The Saints will give him every opportunity to earn the job, but Goodwin, a former Saint, would be a good sounding board and provide competition.

ESPN's Mike Triplett believes the Saints are still considering bring back free agent C Jonathan Goodwin.

While Goodwin is not a long-term answer at center, he did play for the Saints from 2006-2010 and would provide veteran competition for C Tim Lelito. New Orleans should look to solidify the interior of its line in next week's draft.

Free agent C Jonathan Goodwin is visiting the Saints.

All signs pointed to Goodwin eventually making his way to New Orleans for a visit after the Saints lost C Brian de la Puente to the Bears. Goodwin was with the Saints from 2006-2010 before going to the 49ers. The 35-year-old doesn't have a lot left in the tank but would play with two premier guards in LG Ben Grubbs and RG Jahri Evans. The Saints could take a center early in May's draft.
Wed, Apr 16, 2014 05:09:00 PM

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the Saints still have interest in free agent C Jonathan Goodwin.

With Brian de la Puente gone, Goodwin could be reunited with the Saints after spending the last three seasons in San Francisco. 35-year-old Goodwin is Rotoworld's top remaining center in free agency and should only require a veteran minimum contract.
Fri, Apr 11, 2014 07:47:00 PM

The Saints could pursue free agent C Jonathan Goodwin if fellow free agent Brian de la Puente signs elsewhere.

The Redskins and Giants have already shown interest in de la Puente, our No. 2 available center prior to free agency opening. Goodwin would be a downgrade, but he could step right in as a starter after starting 47 games for the Saints and making one Pro Bowl between 2006-10. The 35-year-old would be a bridge to the future at the center spot.

Free agent C Jonathan Goodwin "hasn't heard anything from the 49ers."

That's likely to remain the case after the 49ers signed G/C Daniel Kilgore to a three-year extension on Thursday, cementing him as the favorite to take over for Goodwin in 2013. Now 35, Goodwin was a liability in pass protection last season. He briefly considered retirement, but wants to continue playing.

CSN Bay Area expects the 49ers to let C Jonathan Goodwin walk in free agency.

Goodwin turned 35 last month, but is "open" to re-signing with the 49ers. According to reporter Matt Maiocco, however, San Francisco wants to get younger at center, mentioning Daniel Kilgore and Joe Looney as possibilities. The Niners could also look for a long-term replacement in the draft. Goodwin has been an NFL starter since 2008, but has become a liability in pass protection.

Impending free agent C Jonathan Goodwin is "open" to re-signing with the 49ers.

Goodwin admitted retirement "crossed his mind" after turning 35 last month, but says he "wants to be a part of helping the 49ers experience a Super Bowl victory." It doesn't sound like he has any plans to hang up his cleats. Goodwin hasn't missed a game since 2008. He graded out as the No. 14 center in Pro Football Focus' ratings this season, but was a weak link in pass protection. The 49ers could look to get younger at center.
