49ers sign WR Goodwin to three-year extension
The San Francisco 49ers have signed wide receiver Marquise Goodwin to a three-year contract extension, the team announced on Thursday.
Terms of the deal were not announced, but according to multiple reports, it will be worth $20.3 million with $10 million guaranteed.
"From the minute Marquise joined our team, he has shown us everything we want to see in a 49er," general manager John Lynch said in a statement. "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 last year. Marquise earned this extension by coming in every day focused on doing his job and, as a result, he made himself and his teammates better."
Goodwin, 27, joined the Niners last March on a two-year deal worth up to $6 million via incentives.
In 2017, he started all 16 games and exceeded the production from his first four NFL seasons combined by tallying 56 catches and 962 yards. That included 36 catches and 613 yards over the final eight games of the campaign, and an average of 29 catches for 384 yards in the five contests Jimmy Garoppolo started at quarterback.
A member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic team as a long jumper, Goodwin spent the first four years of his career with the Bills after being drafted in the third round in 2013.
