New Orleans Saints will play against some familiar faces this season

2 of 4

Goodwin will make a return to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this upcoming season when the 49ers and Saints will face each other.  This is a game that Saints  for sure have circled on their calender.

Much like the Seattle Seahawks the previous year, the 49ers have gained a small amount of disdain after defeating the Saints and ending their run at another championship.

Another offensive lineman that will be protecting a quarterback other than Drew Brees will be former Saints guard Carl Nicks.  Nicks was unable to be retained by the Saints after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offered him a lucrative deal.

Nicks perhaps cut the deepest wound for fans because of signing with one of the Saints NFC South rivals.  Now it’s guaranteed that they  will see Nicks twice each year in a different uniform.

Fans were split on Nicks departure with some understanding the move to take care of his family, while others spewed venom saying that Nicks should have shown loyalty and given the team a “hometown discount”.
