Last season was a tumultuous - oftentimes, wrenching - one for Goodwin, beginning with his move from Buffalo, where he was used as a No. 3 receiver, to San Francisco, where expectations were far higher. The deal includes $10 million guaranteed.

In 2017, Goodwin turned 105 targets into 56 catches, 962 yards and 2 touchdowns.

On Thursday, he said the 49ers' ability to see his potential as a multidimensional receiver might have saved his career.

"I always believed that I had more to give", Goodwin said Thursday on a conference call with Bay Area reporters. "A lot of things could have gone wrong".

Sammy Watkins, Allen Robinson, and Marqise Lee headline a group of proven free agent receivers that could supplement the 49ers aerial attack.

Goodwin notably played through personal anguish last season, as his son died from pregnancy complications.

The 27-year-old Goodwin was named the victor of the Len Eshmont Award, presented annually to the player who best exemplifies inspirational and courageous play. He also won the team's Ed Block Courage Award, given to the player who best exemplified a commitment to sportsmanship and courage.

"Marquise earned this extension by coming in every day focused on doing his job and, as a result, he made himself and his teammates better", 49ers general manager John Lynch said in the statement announcing the extension, via the team's official website. "He leads by example with a tremendous work ethic, a trait that helped him expand his repertoire as a football player and post his most successful season as a pro previous year". He has the fifth-fastest 40-yard dash (4.27 seconds) at the National Football League combine and finished 10th in the long jump at the 2012 Olympics. And in 2012, he was an Olympic long jumper. Goodwin spent four years with the Bills, started only 10 games and never had more than 421 receiving yards in a season.

Goodwin, known more as just a down-field threat in his previous seasons with the Buffalo Bills, showed greater versatility as he took over as the 49ers' top wide receiver once Pierre Garcon sustained a season-ending neck injury at midseason. In October, however, Goodwin told The Chronicle he'd had only three concussions in the NFL. Goodwin proved that Shanahan's faith in him was well placed.

"I can come in and make a play". "I think he's made a huge jump throughout this year". The extension will keep him wrapped up until 2021, while it also serves as a giant improvement on the two-year, $8 million deal he signed last year.
