The Seattle Seahawks are in the market for a third wide receiver to compliment DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. According to Bleacher Report, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler recently detailed the Seahawks’ search on SportsCenter and noted Seattle could pry Marquise Goodwin away from the 49ers.
“Now I’m told they’re looking around for potential No. 3 receiver help behind D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, who just signed a massive extension,” Fowler said, per Bleacher Report. “One name to watch is Marquise Goodwin. The speedster, he’s got that world-class speed. He is now a free agent. I’m told they’ve at least put a feeler out in that area.”
The Seahawks lost the team’s third wideout David Moore to the Panthers in free agency. Based on the current roster, Freddie Swain would be the favorite to be the Seahawks’ WR3 but all indications are Seattle wants more competition at the position.

With Goodwin, a team will get a blazing fast former Olympic track and field star. Goodwin ran a 4.27 second 40-yard dash time at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine. While he was a standout receiver at the University of Texas, Goodwin also competed in the 2012 Olympics finishing 10th in the long jump.
Goodwin last played in 2019 when he notched 12 receptions for 186 yards and a touchdown in his 11 appearances including nine starts for the 49ers. The receiver’s best season came in 2017 when he snagged 56 catches for 962 yards and two touchdowns for the Niners.
Goodwin would give the Seahawks a speedy slot receiver to pair with Lockett and Metcalf. Back in 2017, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan praised Goodwin for his desire to play football hours after his son was heartbreakingly delivered stillborn.
