Marquise Goodwin won’t be playing for the Eagles this season after his contract reverted back to the San Francisco 49ers yesterday, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.
The move will save the Eagles around $4.28 million in cap space, which puts the team under the threshold ahead of free agency.
According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, the Eagles will receive the 49ers’ seventh-round pick in exchange for Goodwin reverting back to San Francisco. This now gives the Eagles 11 draft picks — including two seventh-round picks — heading into April.
Last year, the Eagles acquired Goodwin from the 49ers in a draft weekend trade that featured a swap of sixth-round picks. Goodwin, 31, opted out of last season due to COVID-19, so due to the conditions of the trade, the wide receiver’s rights reverted back to San Francisco this offseason.
