Marquise Goodwin is changing NFL teams for the third time since he last played a game.

The 30-year-old free agent wide receiver signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears on Friday. Terms of the deal were not announced.

Goodwin was traded by the San Francisco 49ers to the Philadelphia Eagles in April 2020, but he later opted out of the 2020 season amid the coronavirus pandemic.

His rights reverted to the 49ers because he didn't play for Philadelphia, and the 49ers cut him last month.

Goodwin spent three seasons in San Francisco after playing his first four NFL seasons with the Buffalo Bills, who selected him in the third round of the 2013 draft.

In 75 career games, Goodwin has 140 receptions for 2,323 yards and 13 touchdowns. His best season came in 2017, when he had 56 catches for 962 yards and two TDs for the 49ers.
