Agree w/kelpie70, Goodwin is here for the duration of his deal.
Yes, not saying I love it, but I also don't expect Goodwin to be dumped off at this point. We do have plenty of solid options on the interior now. I'm far less sold on the OT situation, but it's so early to worry about that right now.
What a difference a year make. This time last year we were worrying about an empty slot at RG. With no significant experience for the guys competing at the position. I think going into this year, we have enough bodies for depth, and I'm much more at ease with the backup guys' ability to step in if injury occurred with less of a drop off.

Well, I see them as far enough ahead of the other backup interior linemen that they should be locks. Who is going to over take them without an injury?
They may be in the lead. But a lock is someone guaranteed a roster spot. Looney, Kilgore, Snyder, Wiggins, Netter will battle it out to be backups. Whoever has the best preseason wins. But the guys you listed aren't locks. Goodwin is more of a lock than them.
I think goodwin, Looney and Kilgore are locks. The niners have been spending time on their development, and unless they take a giant step backwards during pre-season I expect all three of them to make the team. It might look nice to save some of that money from Goodwin, but you don't fire your veteran center when you're pushing for the Superbowl unless he get thoroughly outplayed
How fortunate are we with our o-line that the only need we have is a backup tackle? Hopefully someone can emerge. Even still, we will be lacking in experience at that spot. I guess you can't have everything.
