During his career, Goodwin has started in 42 out of the 89 games he has been active in. He brings 160 career catches for 2,636 yards with a 50% catch rate to Seattle. His most productive season was in 2017 with the San Francisco 49ers when he had 105 tagers for 56 catches and 962 yards receiving, which were all career highs. He dropped off after Dante Pettis stole some targets in 2018 and the team went on to draft Deebo Samuel in 2019. Goodwin was not retained after 2019, and played with the Chicago Bears in 2021 after he opted out of the 2020 NFL season due to the pandemic.
