Jonathan Goodwin, center for the San Francisco 49ers, is possibly playing his last game in the NFL. The 49ers will face off against the Green Bay Packers in Wild-Card weekend. This year is the last of Goodwin’s contract with San Francisco, and the 35-year old center has already thought about the possibility of retirement.

In the past few days, Goodwin has gotten some big compliments from his coaching staff. Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman said Goodwin is a “master with his hands.” From ESPN,

“I think he’s great with his hands, number one,” Roman said. “I think he’s a master with his hands. Maybe one of the best in recent history using his hands and understanding how to use his hands, hand placement, leverage. He’s just incredibly smart at getting everything organized quickly and recognizing it during the week. It’s very easy to teach him something, ‘Oh yeah, I got that, OK.’ And I’m talking about something totally new. Give him something totally new, but it’s not new to him. As long as you give him the concept he’s like, ‘OK, OK, I got it, you want me to do this.’ So, that’s awesome when you can do that because he’s directing traffic at a very high level, I might add.”

While we will have to wait for Goodwin’s season to be finished to hear his decision, we will at least get to watch “the master” play one more game.
