49ers, Marquise Goodwin Agree To Extension

The 49ers have re-signed wide receiver Marquise Goodwin to a three-year extension, according to Josina Anderson of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The deal is worth $20.3MM with $10MM guaranteed. The Niners have also confirmed the deal.

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,” GM John Lynch said in a press release.

Goodwin was already under contract for 2018 thanks to the two-year, $6MM free agent deal he inked with SF in 2016. The new pact will keep him in place for longer and reward him for a solid campaign in ’17.

Goodwin was the Niners’ most productive receiver last year, catching 56 passes for 962 yards and two touchdowns. He also jelled well with new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, which bodes well for his future in San Francisco.

The deal also bodes well for wide receivers as a whole. Although Goodwin is coming off of the best season of his career, his $6.67MM average annual value on the deal is an indicator that the wide receiver market is on the verge of exploding. Take Terrelle Pryor for example – last year, Pryor settled for a one-year, $6MM with the Redskins after topping 1,000 yards on 77 catches in the previous season. Even without testing the open market, Goodwin has bested that in AAV on a multi-year deal.

    Smart move. Can’t wait for the tampering period in 4 days to see what else are going to do

    Wasn’t Marquis on Buffalo at one point? He was just known for his speed and being in the olympics or something right? Nice turn around, plus he was great in fantasy football once Jimmy G took over ha!

      Yea he has a really nice year. He earned that raise and extension for sure. Not sure what to expect next year with Garçon having a full year and being there to catch passes from Jimmy G as well and I’m sure we will get another WR or a TE but he’s still worth the raise and should have a decent season because Jimmy likes to spread the ball around like Brady does.

        Ohhh please let it be Allen Robison and Trey Burton…I’ll take Jimmy GQ in Fantasy next year for sure haha!

          I take it another Georgia, 49ers fan??

          Wow, and here I thought I was the only one…lol

          Anyways, Burton almost seems like a lock to the 49ers, so that wish should be granted.

          However, personally, I think Robinson might end up in Chicago. Even so, I am still hoping Jimmy G, Shanny, and Lynch can lure Robinson away from his other suitors…

          With Burton, Robinson, and then either picking up Dion Lewis or drafting Sony Michel, the 49ers passing attack could be really dynamic!!

          They’d have 4 reliable check down options in Burton, Kittle, Juice, and either Lewis or Michel…Then they’d have their shifty slot guy in Taylor..They’d have their speedy, deep threat and screen threat in Goodwin..They’d have their sure-handed possession WR in Garcon, and then they’d have their true #1 WR in Robinson!! WEAPONS GALORE for Jimmy G!!! lol

          As unbelievable as it is, it really is within the realm of becoming possible!! Which I cannot believe I’m saying that, considering where this franchise was just a year ago!!!

    Also, congrats to Goodwin, he definitely earned it. I’m hoping he’s got a lot more to show, as he continues to develop into a more complete, all-around WR..

    He came in last year wanting to prove Buffalo wrong, because they only saw him as, and used him as, a one route WR. Keep up the solid work Goodwin, you definitely earned this raise!!
