The San Francisco 49ers rewarded wide receiver Marquise Goodwin for his career-best season by giving him a three-year contract extension Thursday worth $20.3 million. Goodwin was one of San Francisco's best free-agent acquisitions last season when he signed a two-year deal Ryan Jensen Jersey , giving the team a needed deep threat down the field. His play led the 49ers to lock him up through the 2021 season with the new deal that will guarantee him $10 million, according to NFL Network. After putting up little production in his first four seasons in Buffalo, Goodwin is excited for the chance to remain in coach Kyle Shanahan's system with Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback. "I definitely feel like this offense is good for me in a sense that it allows me to be a football player," he said. "It gives me the opportunity to be out there and make plays and that's what you want in a scheme and a system. It's not just me. Everybody gets to shine. That's what's good about this offense. It's not a one-man wrecking crew. It's not one guy making it happen. It's a lot of guys making opportunities to make plays." The 27-year-old Goodwin set career highs last season with 56 catches for 962 yards and scored two touchdowns. The former Olympic long jumper had caught just 49 passes for 780 yards in four seasons with Buffalo. He also won the team's Len Eshmont Award for inspirational and courageous play and won the team's Ed Block Courage Award given to the player that exemplified a commitment to sportsmanship and courage. It was a trying season off the field for Goodwin, whose premature son died hours before he caught an 83-yard touchdown pass against the New York Giants on Nov. 12, and whose biological father died days before he had 10 catches for 114 yards against Tennessee on Dec. 17. "From the minute Marquise joined our team Xavier Rhodes Jersey , he has shown us everything we want to see in a 49er," general manager John Lynch said. "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." Goodwin really excelled after Garoppolo took over as quarterback last December. He had 29 catches for 384 yards and one touchdown in five games with Garoppolo as the starter, tying for fifth in the NFL in catches and ranking sixth in yards during those games. Goodwin was also tracked with the fastest speed by a receiver on any catch last season according to Next Gen Stats through SportRadar Ereck Flowers Jersey , running 21.68 mph on a 55-yard catch from C.J. Beathard against Arizona on Nov. 5. He narrowly missed out on a 1,000-yard season when he was knocked out of the season finale against the Rams with a concussion after a helmet-to-helmet hit by Blake Countess. Goodwin has had at least four concussions in his career. "I was not scared at all by any means," he said. "I know the game I play. It's tough, it's physical. Things like that happen at some point. The people in the stands were more scared than I was based on how it looked and me being unconscious for a few seconds. I'm blessed for the opportunity to be healthy and go into 2018 with new opportunities." Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared from the concussion protocol and will play in Sunday’s Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gronkowski participated fully in practice on Thursday. Defensive lineman Deatrich Wise also practiced after being cleared from the concussion protocol. Malcolm Butler (illness) and Brandon King (knee) also participated in the workout. Gronk said he is ”ready to roll” and has no limitations. He had been sidelined since taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Jacksonville’s Barry Church in the first half of New England’s AFC championship game win. The All-Pro tight end missed last year’s Super Bowl win over Atlanta after undergoing back surgery. Gronkowski said he believes that the team doctors were just using the bye week to be as cautious with the injury as possible. ”We knew the whole time I was gonna be good to go,” he said. ”I was progressing really good throughout the week. We just knew I’d be ready and we’ve been practicing like we always do.” Gronkowski led the team in receiving during the regular season with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns. His return gives quarterback Tom Brady another key option against an Eagles defense that finished the regular season ranked fourth in the NFL in defense. Philadelphia is giving up 229 yards per game through the air in the playoffs. New England comes in averaging 318 yards passing during the postseason. ”He’s a dynamic player. He means a ton to our offense. He really has since he got to our team. It’s always great when he’s out there Tavon Young Jersey ,” Brady said. ”I’ve played with him a long time, I’ve thrown him a lot of footballs. He knows exactly what to do, he knows where to expect the ball, when to expect it. He’s just a tremendous player for our team.” In addition to Gronk’s return to practice, the Patriots also got a visit from former defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, who won Super Bowls with New England during the 2004 and 2014 seasons. Gronkowski said it was always nice to have ”a great teammate” such as Wilfork around Sam Koch Jersey , but declined to say what words of motivation he offered the team. ”What he said was definitely inspiring – to just cherish the moment,” Gronkowski said. ”But other than that, it was good for our team. And I’ll just keep it at that.” — Womens Darius Leonard Jersey
