Marquise Goodwin contract includes $2 million in incentives

The 49ers signed WR Marquise Goodwin to bring speed to the table. Can he stay healthy and earn his incentives?

The San Francisco 49ers signed wide receiver Marquise Goodwin to a two-year contract last week, and we have some early details, courtesy of NFL reporter Aaron Wilson. The two-year deal includes a $2.5 million signing bonus, and a fully guaranteed first year salary of $1.95 million provided them. He is set to earn $6 million over the course of the two years, with incentives that could add $1 million to each year.

2017 cap hit: $3,250,000

Base: $1,950,000
Pro-rated SB: $1,250,000
Workout bonus: $50,000
Incentives: $1 million

2018 cap hit: $2,750,000

Base: $1,450,000
Pro-rated SB: $1,250,000
Workout bonus: $50,000
Incentives: $1 million

Goodwin could end up operating in a role similar to what Kyle Shanahan did with Taylor Gabriel in Atlanta. Goodwin is listed at 5’9, 179 pounds to Gabriel’s 5’8, 165 pounds, but the extra 14 pounds likely don’t make him any slower than Gabriel.

The 49ers have possession targets in Pierre Garcon and Jeremy Kerley. Goodwin, Aldrick Robinson, and DeAndre Carter are among the receivers who will compete for extensive work stretching out defenses left and right and up and down.
