Reports: Saints to sign former 49er Jonathan Goodwin

Published: Monday, Jun. 2, 2014 - 12:33 pm

The Saints and former 49ers center Jonathan Goodwin reportedly have agreed on a short-term contract, multiple outlets out of New Orleans are reporting today. Goodwin anchored the 49ers' offensive line for the last three seasons but was not expected back this season. His former job likely will go to veteran Daniel Kilgore or third-round draft pick Marcus Martin this season.

Here's an update on where all of the 49ers' unrestricted free agents for 2014 ended up:

* CB Tarell Brown. Signed a one-year deal with the Raiders

* CB Perrish Cox. Signed a one-year deal with the 49ers. He was the “starting” nickel cornerback in last week's OTA practice.

* K Phil Dawson. Signed a two-year deal with the 49ers.

* RB Anthony Dixon. Signed a three-year deal with the Buffalo Bills, who will use him as a tailback, not a fullback.

* C Jonathan Goodwin. Is expected to sign with the Saints on Tuesday.

* WR Mario Manningham. Signed a one-year deal with the Giants.

* QB Colt McCoy. Signed a one-year deal with the Redskins.

* WR Kassim Osgood. Signed a one-year deal with the 49ers.
