The Cleveland Browns made a splash when it came to the wide receiver position when the team traded for Elijah Moore from New York. Now, the Dawgs are making even more waves with the signing of WR Marquise Goodwin.
This 5’9 180-pound speedy pass catcher has played in the league for nine years. Four with Buffalo, three with San Francisco and a single each with Chicago and most recently with Seattle.
Last season with those Seahawks, Goodwin caught 27 passes for 387 yards and four touchdowns. Now at age 32, Goodwin will likely find himself in a backup role for the Browns.
His best season came as a starter way back in 2017 when he had 56 pass catches for 962 yards and two touchdowns to go with it in San Francisco.
Via NBC Sports: Though Cleveland had Amari Cooper and Donovan Peoples-Jones under contract at receiver, the club needed some more depth at the position. Now the Browns have added Moore and Goodwin this week to work with quarterback Deshaun Watson.
It’ll be interesting to see what the Browns do with wideout Anthony Schwartz because Goodwin is essentially replacing him in that backup receiver role.
The Browns have really done a nice job this offseason will all of the additions to the roster. Now, it’s not as if the Goodwin signing is winning the team a Super Bowl or anything, but it’s a solid pickup. They should see some results.
Also, it’s not a big commitment either as it’s only a signing for a single season.
It’s exciting to see how good the Browns will end up being as they battle it out against the AFC North to try and make the playoffs for the first time since the team even made it in 2020.
Welcome to Cleveland, Marquise Goodwin.
