San Francisco 49ers sign WR to three-year extension — Marquise Goodwin

After career year, 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin gets three-year extension | The Sacramento Bee

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin agreed to a three-year contract extension, the team announced Thursday.

The 27-year-old Goodwin set career highs last season with 56 catches for 962 yards and scored two touchdowns.

The 5-foot-9, 179-pound pass-catcher ranked third in the National Football League with an average catch of 17.2 yards. Goodwin, a former Olympic long jumper who is among the NFL's fastest players, was used primarily as a deep threat in Buffalo.

After losing their first nine games to start the season, many expected a neck-and-neck between the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns for the rights to the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Goodwin with the catch, Al Michaels with the call. It's not just targeting me. "A lot of things could have gone wrong". "If you want to win, then come to 49er-land". The team could still look for another possible starter in free agency, like Jacksonville's Allen Robinson or Sammy Watkins of the Rams. He lost a stillborn son and his biological father in a matter of weeks, but didn't miss a game.

Teammates honored Goodwin with the Len Eshmont Award - their most prestigious honor - for inspiration and courage. He also won the team's Ed Block Courage Award, given to the player who best exemplified a commitment to sportsmanship and courage. "He leads by example with a tremendous work ethic, a trait that helped him expand his repertoire as a football player and post his most successful season as a pro past year". Goodwin reeled in 10 receptions for 114 yards in that contest.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo isn't the only member of the 49ers offense with a new deal from the team. Goodwin spent four years with the Bills, started only 10 games and never had more than 421 receiving yards in a season.

Goodwin would have had a chance to surpass 1,000 yards on the season if not for a vicious hit to the head he sustained in the finale against the Los Angeles Rams. Goodwin's arms initially splayed when he took the shot from safety Blake Countess. In October, however, Goodwin told The Chronicle he'd had only three concussions in the NFL.

"The suns shines a little brighter, the bird chirps a little louder, the grass is a little greener today", Goodwin said on Friday morning.

"I'm really blessed and fortunate because it could have all ended after Buffalo or I could have been in a worse situation and not had this year to have a solid season", he said.

Last offseason, the 49ers signed Goodwin to a two-year, $6 million deal, which now seems like a major bargain.

"Marquise has been unbelievable", Kyle Shanahan said afterwards.
