CLEVELAND — Two days after acquiring wide receiver Elijah Moore in a trade with the New York Jets, the Cleveland Browns added some more speed to their offense. According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Browns have agreed to terms with veteran wide receiver Marquise Goodwin on a one-year contract.
Now entering his 11th season in the NFL, the 32-year-old Goodwin spent the 2022 season with the Seattle Seahawks. Appearing in 13 games (two starts), the Texas product caught 27 passes for 387 yards, matching a career-high with four touchdowns.
Despite his age, Goodwin's speed and athleticism remain his best assets, as he competed in track and field for Team USA in the 2012 Olympics and took part in the 2020 Olympic trials. In coming to Cleveland, he joins a Browns wide receiving corps that in addition to Moore, currently includes Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones, David Bell, Anthony Schwartz and Michael Woods II.
Cleveland's signing of Goodwin marks the third offensive weapon the Browns have acquired since the start of the NFL's new league year last week. In addition to the trade for Moore, Cleveland signed tight end Jordan Akins, who previously played with Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson on the Houston Texans.
