By now, you've probably heard how gifted Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is. Not only is he incredibly fast -- as shown by his 4.27-second 40-yard dash -- but he's also a world-class long jumper. On Wednesday night in Toronto at the Pan Am Games, Goodwin added another title to his list of track and field accomplishments.
Representing the U.S., Goodwin finished second in the long jump, earning himself a silver medal with a long jump of 8.27 meters. That's a ridiculous 27 feet, 1 inch. Fellow American, Jeffrey Henderson, won gold with a jump of 8.54 meters, or 28 feet, 1/4 inch.
Not a bad way to end an offseason before the start of training camp. Goodwin called the experience "surreal," and is thankful he got the opportunity to "represent [his] team, the NFL and USA Track and Field.
Now, Goodwin will have to go from "being the CEO of [his] own corporation" to fighting to make an impact on offense with the Bills. With 4.27-speed and that kind of leaping ability, it shouldn't be too difficult.
