Latest On 49ers Looking To Trade WR Marquise Goodwin

Matt Maiocco of NBC Bay Area is hearing that the 49ers have given WR Marquise Goodwin and his representatives permission to speak with interested teams to negotiate a new contract.

49ers GM John Lynch told Josina Anderson they’re still working to trade Goodwin and a deal could be in place at some point today.

We’re trying to find Marquise a good home. That is something that could happen today,” Lynch told Anderson.

Lynch added that they nearly traded Goodwin earlier this week.

“It’s gotten close a couple times…probably the last time was earlier this week,” Lynch said, per Anderson.

Goodwin is owed roughly $10 million over two years, so it’s not surprising to hear he may have to rework his deal. 

Goodwin was placed on injured reserve in December of last year with knee and foot injuries. 

Goodwin, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Bills back in 2013. He spent four years in Buffalo before signing a two-year contract with the 49ers last year worth up to $8 million.

Goodwin was set to make just $1.45 million for the 2018 season when he agreed to a three-year, $20.3 million extension with $10 million guaranteed. 

According to, trading Goodwin would free up $3,656,250 of available cap space while creating $1.25 million in dead money. 

In 2019, Goodwin appeared in nine games for the 49ers and caught 12 passes for 186 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for 15 yards.
