Aldrick Robinson contract offers clear distinction from Marquise Goodwin

The 49ers signed Robinson and Goodwin to bring speed to the wide receivers. More is clearly expected of one than the other.

The San Francisco 49ers signed three wide receivers last week, adding Pierre Garcon, Marquise Goodwin, and Aldrick Robinson to the mix. Garcon is the clear leader of the pack of this group, both in terms of expectations and salary. Goodwin is the fastest of the trio, but Robinson is no slouch himself.

NFL reporter Aaron Wilson has details on Robinson’s contract, and it is slightly less than what the 49ers are paying Goodwin. The 49ers signed Goodwin to a two-year deal worth $6 million with $1 million in incentives each year. They signed Robinson to a two-year deal worth $4 million with $1 million in incentives, I believe also each year. The big difference is that Goodwin got a $2.5 million signing bonus, while Robinson got a $300,000 signing bonus.

We don’t know what the incentives are in Robinson’s deal, but the 49ers have added depth without any significant commitment. They are clearly looking for more from Goodwin than Robinson. It’s interesting considering Robinson and Garcon have experience in Kyle Shanahan’s offense, while Goodwin does not.

Here is a rundown of Robinson’s deal.
