ND Insider

Wide receiver John Goodman on Sunday became the fourth undrafted Notre Dame football player in the 2013 NFL Draft class to sign a rookie free agent contract.

The 6-foot-3, 206-pound Fort Wayne, Ind., product has agreed to terms with the Cincinnati Bengals, the same team former ND and Bishop Dwenger High School teammate Tyler Eifert was drafted by in Thursday night’s first round.

Offensive lineman Trevor Robinson, an undrafted free agent in 2012, is also on the Bengals roster and started seven games for Cincinnati last season.

Goodman had a modest seven catches for 65 yards last season as a backup, with three of those going for touchdowns. His most productive season was 2010, when he had 15 catches for 146 yards.

Still looking for deals among Irish players are wide receiver Robby Toma, long snapper Jordan Cowart, safety Chris Salvi and punter Ben Turk.
