The San Francisco 49ers will formally announce the signing of free agent wide receiver Marquise Goodwin on Thursday, but financial terms are slowly arriving. NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport tweeted that Goodwin agreed to a two-year deal worth up to $8 million. He said the deal includes incentives that are “very much in reach.”
Goodwin spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Buffalo Bills, but did not get close to a full season of action until this past year. He played 12 games his first season, 10 games his second season, and only two his third season. This past season he played in 15 games, and caught 29 passes for 431 yards.
This represents a sizable pay raise for Goodwin. He was on his rookie contract, and earned $675,000 this past season. My guess is there will be guarantees in year one, and then year two will happen if he can show he can stay healthy and productive through the first year.
