Track and field star Marquise Goodwin is the latest offensive player to get in line to sign with the 49ers on Thursday.
Goodwin has agreed to terms with the 49ers, reports the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Goodwin (5 foot 9, 178 pounds) joins a growing list of players who appear ticketed to join 49ers once the official free-agent signing period begins on Thursday at 1 p.m.
The 49ers have reported agreements with quarterback Brian Hoyer, receiver Pierre Garçon and Goodwin. The team also appears likely to sign Pro Bowl fullback Kyle Juszczyk. Free-agent contracts are not allowed to be signed until Thursday at 1 p.m., at the beginning of the new league year.
The 49ers and Buffalo Bills were the finalists for Juszczyk, according to a league source. The Bills have a contract agreement in place for Atlanta fullback Patrick DiMarco, which would seem to indicate Juszczyk is heading to the 49ers.
Goodwin, 26, is a four-year NFL veteran who caught a career-high 29 passes for 431 yards and three touchdowns last season with the Buffalo Bills. He was selected in the third round of the NFL draft.
Goodwin made the 2012 U.S. Olympic team in the long jump. He qualified with a jump of 27 feet, 4 ¼ inches at the Olympic trials. At the Olympics, he jumped 26-7 and finished in 10th place.
Jeremy Kerley and Bruce Ellington are currently the slot receivers on the 49ers' roster. Despite his size, Goodwin lined up in the slot for just 55 of the 390 pass routes he ran last season, according to Pro Football Focus.
