The 49ers wrapped up wide receiver Marquise Goodwin on Thursday to a three-year contract extension through the 2021 season, the club announced.
“From the minute Marquise joined our team, he has shown us everything we want to see in a 49er,” 49ers general manager John Lynch said in a statement.
“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 last year. 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.”
The deal is worth up to $20.3 million with $10 million guaranteed, the NFL Network reported.
Goodwin signed a two-year contract with the 49ers last year on the first day of free agency. He had a breakout season with the 49ers, catching 56 passes for 962 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games.
In his first four NFL seasons with the Buffalo Bills, Goodwin caught a combined 49 passes for 780 yards and six touchdowns.
Goodwin was named the winner of the Len Eshmont Award, presented annually to the player who best exemplifies inspirational and courageous play. He also won the Ed Block Courage Award.
Goodwin provided one of the most memorable and emotional moments of the 49ers’ season on Nov. 12 when he caught a touchdown pass against the New York Giants to help the 49ers to their first victory over the season.
The play happened just hours after he and his wife, Morgan, lost their baby boy due to complications during pregnancy.
