Goodwin opted out the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns after the San Francisco 49ers traded him to the Philadelphia Eagles. The wideout's rights reverted to the 49ers after the campaign due to a certain condition in the trade, but San Francisco promptly released him.
The 30-year-old had his most productive season in 2017, catching 56 passes for 962 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Goodwin played for the Niners from 2017-19 after spending his first four years with the Buffalo Bills.
As a former Olympian who competed in long jump, Goodwin has been known as a speed threat throughout his career, and he'll look to bolster a Bears offense that finished 26th in yards last year.
