Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t the only member of the 49ers offense with a new deal from the team.

The 49ers announced that they have signed wide receiver Marquise Goodwin to a three-year extension through the 2021 season. Josina Anderson of ESPN reports the deal is worth $20.3 million with $10 million in guaranteed money.

“From the minute Marquise joined our team, he has shown us everything we want to see in a 49er,” General Manager John Lynch said in a statement. “He leads by example with a tremendous work ethic, a trait that helped him expand his repertoire as a football player and post his most successful season as a pro last year. 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.”

Goodwin is set to make $1.45 million this season under the terms of the two-year contract he signed with the 49ers last offseason. He led the team’s wideouts with 56 catches and 962 yards while also scoring two touchdowns. He had 29 catches, 384 yards and a touchdown after Garoppolo took over as the starter for the final five games of the season.

The other touchdown was an 83-yarder against the Giants in November in what would be the 49ers’ first win of the year. It came hours after Goodwin and his wife Morgan lost their son due to a complication with Morgan’s pregnancy.

  1. It’s funny the Bills were thought to have a mediocre WR core with Watkins, Woods, and Goodwin… Put a legit QB in the mix and that seems a pretty dang impressive unit to me.

  2. Glad to see this guy get some good news and at least have his financial future secure after a family tragedy last year. Kid seems like he’s good sauce.

  4. Love Goodwin. Great player and probably a better person. And hope he makes it the full 3, but he’s got his bell rung pretty good the last couple of years. Go Niners.

  5. He got a lot better after Jimmy started playing. But the 49ers play of the year remains that emotional 80-yard bomb he caught from Beathard that gave us our first (and at the time I thought only) win.

  6. Really an impressive person and became an impressive player when Jimmy started throwing him the ball. Those two had an immediate connection for whatever reason.

    For a guy his size to be a legit outside threat shows a lot about is toughness.

    His concussion history and tendency to drop some balls has me a little worried but a completely reasonable contract either way.

    Those 3 players’ combined IQs is like 100.

    Hence, why they were very mediocre at best in Buffalo.

    He has 8 TDs in 5 years and ha dlike 1 catch in 2014 in 10 games. Why on earth anyone would trade for and then pay someone this kind of contract, is beyond me.

    He had 3 total receptions in 2014 and 2015. LOL

    I think John Lynch is already a bit too high on himself here.

    A lot of “cap space” can disappear REALLY quick with nonsensical signings like this.

    Agree but the problem is Goodwin and Watkins was always hurt

  11. I’m a realistic Bills fan. I know Woods was a mistake to lose and Watkins has potential when not hurt. But I am fine with 49ers having Goodwin. He is obviously fast, but if he has any challenge for a ball he’s not catching it. (Opposite of Woods in this respect.) I wish him the best but have a hard time believing this will be successful.

  12. Was skeptical of him when we signed him originally. Didnt expect much from him when Garcon went down. But he showed up. Even before Jimmy G. Not mad at this signing. Good for him.

  13. To those who are basing their opinions of Goodwin on his days in Buffalo, you obviously didn’t watch him this past year.

    Goodwin had 960 yds receiving, and would’ve had 1,000 if he weren’t knocked out by a cheap illegal hit in the final game against the Rams. There were 36 players this year who had > 100 targets for the season — of them, Goodwin was #2 at 17.2 yds/catch. He did have a few big drops early in the year, but for the most part repeatedly made contested catches, and didn’t shy away from contact after the catch.

    The full details of the contract aren’t out yet, but like the other extensions done by the Niners this off-season, it’s front-loaded and very cap-friendly within a couple of years, i.e., little to no dead money if they choose to release him.

    He’s not a WR1, but he’s an important piece, and the contract is a good deal for both sides.

  14. Even as a Raiders fan I’ve gotta give it to John Lynch here… what an absolutely amazing signing… only $10M guaranteed!?!!!

    Lynch is off to a hell of a start in San Fran

    The Rams had a legit QB during that time. The problem was Jeff Fisher.

  16. How many guys can say they played in the NFL and competed for their country at an Olympic level? So cool.
