"From the minute Marquise joined our team, he has shown us everything we want to see in a 49er," general manager John Lynch said in a release.

"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 team-mates better."

Goodwin averaged 17.2 yards per reception last season, the third best in the NFL.
