Marquise Goodwin on Monday called his shot.
The 49ers wide receiver and world-class long-jumper took to social media to make his goal public: He intends to take care of unfinished business in his Olympic track and field career during the 2020 Summer Games in Toyko.
I’m going to win the 2020 Olympics in Long jump! 💪🏿 idk how, but I am.— MG (@marquisegoodwin) April 8, 2019
Goodwin, 28, served a one-year suspension under U.S. Anti-Doping Agency policy, beginning in April 2017, for failing to properly file and maintain his whereabouts information during a span of 12 months. Goodwin did not face any discipline from the NFL. At the time, Goodwin said he never failed a test and that he decided to stop competing in the long jump in order to concentrate 100 percent on his football career.
In 2017 during his first season with the 49ers, Goodwin had a career-year, catching 56 passes for 962 yards and two touchdowns. He was plagued by injuries last season and caught just 23 passes for 395 yards and four touchdowns in 11 games.
Goodwin won the U.S. Olympic Trials in 2012, becoming the first collegian since 1960 to accomplish that feat. He finished 10th at the London Olympics.
Four years later, he was jumping the best of his career heading into the Olympic Trials but sustained a hamstring injury and saw his Olympic hopes end with a seventh-place finish.
In May 2017, Goodwin told NBC Sports Bay Area he felt like he would be in his jumping prime if he opted to make another bid for the Olympics in 2020.
“I still have a lot left in the tank,” he said. “I always wonder what I could do if I put some more time into it, but football is my priority."
In 2016, Goodwin pursued the Olympics with the blessings of then-coach Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills organization. He was excused from participating in the team's mandatory June minicamp before rejoining the team for training camp.
Goodwin is under contract to the 49ers through the 2021 season. If he advances to the 2020 Olympics, he would likely miss the entire NFL offseason program and the first couple of weeks of training camp. The Olympics are scheduled to take place from July 24 to Aug. 9, 2020.
