NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says the club and Jonathan Goodwin have agreed to a one-year contract bringing the veteran center back to New Orleans.
The 35-year-old Goodwin has spent the past three seasons with San Francisco, playing in three straight NFC title games and a Super Bowl.
Goodwin played for New Orleans from 2006 to 2010, starting the last three of those seasons. He was named to a Pro Bowl and won a Super Bowl in the 2009 season. His new deal is worth $955,000, a person familiar with negotiations told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because financial terms were not released.
Goodwin is entering his 14th season in the NFL. He played at Lower Richland which has also produced NFL products Richard Seymour and David Patten.
Jonathan's brother, Harold is the offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals.
