With starting center Jonathan Goodwin still missing from training camp as the New Orleans Saints negotiate contract terms with the unrestricted free agent, Matt Tennant has joined the starting lineup.

Tennant has worked exclusively with the first-team offense in the first four practices, a major step up from the special teams blocking and backup center duties he had in his rookie season.

While most around the organization expressed a strong desire to bring Goodwin, a three-year starter at the position and 2009 Pro Bowler, back into the fold, Tennant said he is preparing as if he will be the center when the Saints step out on the Lambeau Field turf in the Sept. 8 opener against the Green Bay Packers.

"You really can't worry about (the Goodwin situation) at this point," Tennant said Monday. "Right now I'm the guy. Goodie could come back, and he might not. I have to understand that I could be the starter. I did the same thing last year in case someone got hurt, so it's not new."

After working with backup quarterback Chase Daniel last season for the second-team offense and the scout squad, Tennant said snapping for Drew Brees has been a significant adjustment.

"Drew runs a very fast-paced huddle, and he's so quick with his cadence," Tennant said. "The pace is just on a different level, and I'm constantly working to make sure I keep up with him."

The Saints brought in Tennant with the 158th pick of the 2010 draft, after a standout career at Boston College that included second-team All-America honors in his senior season. He played with Matt Ryan, the quarterback for divisional rival Atlanta Falcons, in 2007.

Tennant, 6 feet 4 and 300 pounds, said his time around Ryan in college was a learning experience for the current job with Brees.

"I've been fortunate to have good quarterbacks behind me during my career, and Matt taught me a lot while we played together," Tennant said. "It's the same being with Drew. He makes you want to be the best."

Saints right tackle Jon Stinchcomb said the offensive line is prepared to

Good for him. The majority of our free agents did very well for themselves via free agency. It pays to be a Saint.
