Eagles Add Veteran WR Marquise Goodwin in Deal with 49ers
The Eagles added veteran receiver Marquise Goodwin in a deal with the San Francisco 49ers, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. The two teams flipped 6th-round picks, with Philadelphia adding Goodwin.
Originally a third round pick out of Texas in 2013, Goodwin has played three years for the 49ers and four years in Buffalo, tallying 281 catches for 2,323 yards and 13 touchdowns. Goodwin caught 12 passes for just 186 yards last season, averaging 15.5 yards a reception, in nine games.
He is regarded as a deep threat, averaging 16.6 yards per catch during his career, and adds insurance for DeSean Jackson, adding some more speed to the offense for Carson Wentz.
Goodwin signed a four-year, $21.75 million contract with the 49ers prior to the 2017 season. He has two years remaining and is due roughly $10 million over the next two seasons.
He is two years removed from one of his most productive seasons, with career-highs in catches (56) and receiving yards (962) in his first year with the Niners,
