The San Francisco 49ers rewarded wide receiver Marquise Goodwin for his career-best season by giving him a three-year contract extension Thursday worth $20.3 million.
Goodwin was one of San Francisco's best free-agent acquisitions last season when he signed a two-year deal Youth Harold Landry Jersey
, giving the team a needed deep threat down the field. His play led the 49ers to lock him up through the 2021 season with the new deal that will guarantee him $10 million, according to NFL Network.
After putting up little production in his first four seasons in Buffalo, Goodwin is excited for the chance to remain in coach Kyle Shanahan's system with Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback.
"I definitely feel like this offense is good for me in a sense that it allows me to be a football player," he said. "It gives me the opportunity to be out there and make plays and that's what you want in a scheme and a system. It's not just me. Everybody gets to shine. That's what's good about this offense. It's not a one-man wrecking crew. It's not one guy making it happen. It's a lot of guys making opportunities to make plays."
The 27-year-old Goodwin set career highs last season with 56 catches for 962 yards and scored two touchdowns. The former Olympic long jumper had caught just 49 passes for 780 yards in four seasons with Buffalo.
He also won the team's Len Eshmont Award for inspirational and courageous play and won the team's Ed Block Courage Award given to the player that exemplified a commitment to sportsmanship and courage.
