The Chicago Bears added some valuable depth and speed to the wide receivers room addition of former San Francisco wideout Marquise Goodwin to a one-year contract.

Chicago has a lot of questions at the wide receiver position behind Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney, especially with Anthony Miller’s future in doubt. The Bears have reportedly been discussing trading Miller this offseason, which doesn’t come as a surprise given his inconsistent performance and his ejection in the wild-card playoff game back in January.

Which is where the addition of Goodwin comes in, especially with a ton of inexperience with Javon Wims and Riley Ridley. Chicago will likely still target a receiver in the NFL draft, but Goodwin gives them solid depth and some speed.

Now, we have details of Goodwin’s contract with the Bears.

Goodwin signed a one-year deal worth $1.21 million, including $350,000 guaranteed and a $137,500 signing bonus. In 2021, Goodwin will earn a base salary of $1.075 million while carrying a cap hit of $987,500 and a dead cap value of $350,000.

By comparison, Miller is slated to earn a base salary of $1.21 million while carrying a cap hit of $1.70 million and a dead cap value of $493,400, which is quite similar to Goodwin. Perhaps it’s an indication of what’s to come of Miller’s future in Chicago.
