After career year, 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin gets three-year extension

After career year, 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin gets three-year extension

But the 49ers have already made a habit of rewarding their own this offseason, inking a number of extensions, including those of franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, and there a number of San Francisco's free agents who are strong candidates to be brought back.

Goodwin's extension is worth up to $20.3 million, including $10 million guaranteed, NFL Media reported. Now he's looking at $10 million guaranteed, which is very impressive for a guy who's only just now starting to show what he can do at the National Football League level.

So, without further ado, here's how the 2018 NFL Draft could play out for the up and coming San Francisco 49ers. He not only mustered the courage to play in a game that day - he said his wife urged him to play - but caught a long touchdown pass, his first of the season. Then, as a featured player in Kyle Shanahan's offense a year ago, he eclipsed that total by hauling in 56 passes for 962 yards.

Goodwin had a career year in 2017 after signing a two-year deal with San Francisco and the 49ers rewarded him with a new deal Thursday that keeps him under contract through the 2021 season. The speedy receiver achieved career highs of 56 receptions and 962 yards in 2017.

"I was granted a better positon and a better opportunity when I came to the 49ers", Goodwin said in a conference call with local beat reporters on Thursday. It's not just targeting me. Goodwin was entering the final year of a two-year contract he signed with San Francisco last spring.

The 49ers' investment and confidence in Goodwin, along with the presence of wideouts Pierre Garcon and Trent Taylor, could signal they aren't poised to make major moves at the position in free agency. To put that in perspective, Goodwin only caught 24 passes total in the 10 games before Garoppolo's arrival.

Goodwin was asked if he feels head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense brings the best out of him. And I see what Kyle has done with many other receivers in his system. "I knew that coming here would be my best fit and obviously it's proven well". "That's it. He gives me an opportunity, and when you get an opportunity and make a play, you allow yourself for more opportunities". Everybody gets to shine. It's not one guy just making it happen.
