Goodson was waived by the Saints on Tuesday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Goodson was let go so the Saints could beef up their defensive line depth. He was brought in last week to serve as a depth corner and special teams contributor.
Goodson was brought in last week for a workout with the Saints and was consequently signed Thursday. The 29-year-old cornerback recently played for Green Bay and has not seen NFL action since 2016. Goodson will look to provide depth to a Saints secondary that ranks 30th in the NFL in passing yards against per game this season (311).
Goodson (calf) was a participant in OTAs on Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Goodson sat out last Thursday's session with a calf injury. However, his return to action Monday suggests he isn't dealing with anything severe.
Goodson sat out Thursday's OTA practice due to a calf injury, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Goodson ended the 2017 on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. It's unclear if the hamstring is still bothering him at all, but his calf was what ultimately has held him recently in OTAs. There's no indication that his injury is serious and it isn't expected to impact him once training camp begins.
Goodson's year-long rehab from last November's nasty knee injury ended in disappointment as he never saw the field in 2017. The 28-year-old came off the Physically Unable to Perform list late last month only to injure his hamstring shortly thereafter.
