3 Most Likely Destinations for Marquise Goodwin in Free Agency
By Max Staley
The San Francisco 49ers have elected to release Marquise Goodwin. It's a bit of a confusing situation, as his rights reverted back to San Francisco this week as part of a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles last year.
Regardless, SF has decided to cut the receiver. But the speedster could still be helpful to any team in need of a true deep threat.
Marquise Goodwin Release
3. Houston Texans
The Houston Texans are almost certainly losing Will Fuller to free agency this offseason. Goodwin obviously wouldn't be able to totally replace the 26-year-old, but they're both burners who specialize in taking the top off the defense. Goodwin could be a cheap, low-cost option for a team that's likely to have some trouble attracting big-name free agents this offseason.
2. Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers have been searching for some receiver help for quite some time. Goodwin obviously wouldn't solve those issues on his own, but pairing a guy with legit 4.27 speed with Aaron Rodgers is rarely a bad idea. He'd be a nice flyer for Green Bay to take this offseason.
1. Cleveland Browns
Once Odell Beckham Jr. tore his ACL, the Cleveland Browns didn't really have many reliable playmakers downfield. Goodwin could be a good body to add to Cleveland's wide receiver room, as his speed could bring a whole new element to that passing attack. And the fact that he'd come cheap could be a huge plus to a team that's still looking to make moves.
