WR - PHI
The 49ers released WR Marquise Goodwin.
Goodwin "reverted back" to San Francsico earlier this week. It was a procedural move after he opted out of playing for the Eagles last season following the trade. He's now on the open market and free to sign with any team.
WR Marquise Goodwin reverted back to the 49ers from the Eagles, per Tuesday's NFL transaction wire.
Goodwin will likely hit the open market later this week. The two teams swapped sixth round picks for his services last season but then he opted out. There isn't a lot to see here other than a procedural move.
WR Marquise Goodwin opts out of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Goodwin has decided to opt out of the 2020 season, basing his decision to stay with his family. He was acquired via trade by the Eagles in the off-season. Goodwin opting out increases the fantasy value of Jalen Reagor. The 29-year-old hauled in 12 catches for 186 yards and one touchdown across nine games for the 49ers in 2019.
Newly-acquired WR Marquise Goodwin and the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a restructured contract for one-year, $1.35M, with the opportunity to earn up to $1M in incentives.
The restructuring of the contract comes just hours after the Eagles traded its 190th overall pick to the 49ers in exchange for Goodwin and the 210th overall pick. With the new one-year deal, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent after the 2020 season. This can be seen as a “prove it” deal for the 29-year old speedster who just hasn’t seen much of the field over the past couple seasons due to injuries. The Eagles hope Goodwin can get back to his 2017 level of production where he went for almost 1,000 receiving yards with the 49ers. He also owns a 16.6 yards per catch career average. Goodwin gets new life and a great opportunity in Philadelphia who needed more weapons for QB Carson Wentz.
The Eagles have swapped sixth-round picks with the 49ers for Marquise Goodwin.
Marquise Goodwin has flown the coupe in San Francisco and will now call Philadelphia his new nest. Goodwin had a forgettable 2019 season posting only 12-186-1. He should step into the deep threat role for the Eagles 2020 season.
