2. Goodwin’s contract is fair price

Prior to the 2018 season, Goodwin agreed to a three-year extension with the 49ers worth just over $20 million to keep the wideout under contract through the 2021 season.

As previously mentioned, there is some frustration over the fact that Goodwin is a wide receiver who has yet to break the 1,000-yard mark even once during his career, but when seeing the fair price the Eagles will have to pay him over the next two years, this is clearly worth the risk.

It would be one thing if Philadelphia brought Goodwin on board with a ridiculous hefty contract that took up extra salary cap space, but this a clear scenario in which the Eagles can afford the wideout at a decent price.

Down the road, there will be the possibility of Goodwin receiving a pay raise from Philadelphia if all were to go according to plan impact wise, but at least this is an issue Philadelphia won’t have to worry about for a while.

If anything, the Eagles will be hoping for Goodwin to outplay his contract during the next two seasons with solid enough numbers to make this trade with the 49ers look like a complete steal since they didn’t need to give up much in return.
