Report: Marquise Goodwin to restructure contract with Eagles
According to his Instagram Live, Marquise Goodwin might not be going anywhere. After opting out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19, the veteran wideout looks to be restructuring his contract. The Eagles acquired Goodwin from the 49ers for pick 190 in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Marquise had two years remaining on his contract worth roughly $10.5 million with a cap hit of $4.5 million this offseason and $7 million in 2022. The 30-year-old seemed likely to be on the move with Desean Jackson’s release yesterday and Alshon Jeffery possibly being cut soon. With a year of rest and preparation, Goodwin could provide another possible deep threat to the Eagles WR group.
Marquise Goodwin in 2017 (last full season):
- 962 yards
- 17 yards per reception
- 56 receptions
- 60 yards per game
A majority of Marquise’s career has been riddled with injuries, only playing a full season once in his eight-year career. Depending on what the restructure looks like, he could be a much-needed veteran presence for the young wideouts. With the Eagles currently looking at being more than $40 million over the salary cap, several other cuts and restructures will be on the way.
