- The Saints waived G Mike Golic Jr. and ILB Spencer Hadley to make room for the two additions.
Mike Triplett of ESPN.com first reported that the Saints had agreed to terms with Goodwin on Monday.
Goodwin, 35, recently worked out for New Orleans and reports indicated that a deal was likely to get done this week.
Last year, Goodwin was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 15 center in the league, which was largely due to his above-average run-blocking ability.
- We had Goodwin rated No. 15 in our recently updated Top 50 – Best Available Free Agents list.
Deaderick, 26, recently worked out for the Chiefs last week, but apparently had greater interest from the Saints. He was a seventh-round pick of the Patriots back in 2010. Deaderick spent three seasons with New England before being claimed off waivers by the Jaguars in May of last year.
In 2013, he appeared in 13 games for Jacksonville and totaled nine tackles, a half sack, a forced fumble and a recovery.
