SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Only hours after his baby boy’s death, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin arrived at the team hotel to check in before Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.

After his wife, Morgan, encouraged him to play, the usually dapper Goodwin arrived in sweats, having come directly from the hospital after their son was delivered stillborn in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Goodwin hadn’t slept after spending the night by his wife’s side and he was about to play in a professional football game wholly unprepared, save for the two most important influences in his life: his faith and his wife.

San Francisco wide receiver Marquise Goodwin has a quiet moment in the end zone following his touchdown against the Giants on Sunday.

“Honest to God truth, the only reason I made it through the game is because of my faith in God,” Goodwin said Tuesday. “I mentally and physically was not prepared to play in the game. At all. I really didn’t even practice that week, I was just going through a lot. Just trying to get my body rested from the week before and the week before that. Coming into the game, I wasn’t really in it because I had just lost my baby. My wife, we prayed about it and I guess she felt that God moved her to allow me to go play and she encouraged me. She raised my spirits up and helped me get ready for the game.
“So that’s what’s so cool about the situation is, my wife, how supportive she is and how encouraging she is, all these great things that she does for me to help me go out there and play the way that I did. I think it speaks more about her character than mine because here she is, she could be holding me back, she could make me feel guilty about having to go and play football, which is just a game in the grand scheme of things and what we dealt with was a real-life situation, a death. Not only a death but a death to our infant child. So, situations like that, you only make it through that with your faith in God.”

Morgan Goodwin told People magazine that they had decided to name their son Marquise Jr. After experiencing complications the previous week, she told People that she was rushed to the hospital by ambulance hours before the birth, with her husband by her side throughout.

“We cried. It was a hard thing to take in,” she said. “This hurts because I was 19 weeks, I was almost halfway there.”

The couple wed in February 2016 and she told People they’d dreamed of starting a family and used fertility treatments after she suffered a previous miscarriage.

“I was looking forward to having someone to call our own — our own creation,” she told People. “I feel I was placed in this world to be a mother, and I want to be a mother. I want to be a mother to four kids, five. I want a lot of children so this hurts.”

Despite the hurt, Marquise Goodwin didn’t just play against the Giants, he also contributed two of the biggest plays of the game in helping the 49ers to their first win of the season. He threw a key block to spring tight end Garrett Celek for a 47-yard touchdown and caught an 83-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

On his long touchdown catch, Goodwin blew a kiss to the sky before crossing the goal line and then knelt in the end zone to pray as the emotion poured out of him.

“All the pain that I was feeling at the time, it just came over me at once,” Goodwin said. “It wasn’t something that was planned. If you had lost something that you wanted more than anything, something that you expected because you could see it without seeing it, you would know how I felt in that situation. So just to be able to score a touchdown and ultimately help my team get a win was just a great moment in my life and it’s a moment that I’ll remember forever because I could have easily not been at the game and that never would have happened. Nobody would have ever known about this story and we wouldn’t be able to help ourselves and then be able to help other people along the way (in) healing. I’m grateful that I was able to play in the game and get a touchdown.”

In the midst of the highlight-reel touchdown catch and crushing block, Goodwin could also be seen kneeling over an injured Giant in prayer. It’s part of a faith-based approach Goodwin said he adopted when he got old enough to understand it and has been a regular part of his life since.

“I pray for everybody throughout the game, even my opponents,” Goodwin said. “Outside of the game we still have to live life, still have to lead normal lives and we still need our bodies. Praying for him is pretty simple because if I was down, I would want people to pray for me. I just believe in helping other people.”

After the game, Goodwin quickly exited the locker room to be by his family’s side. He and his wife soon made the decision to share their story on social media. For Goodwin, that choice to share something so personal was made in an effort to tell their story without others making assumptions or spreading false rumors.

As it turned out, sharing his family’s story in such a public way has resulted in what Goodwin calls a “tremendous amount of support” from people all over.

“Morgan and I appreciate all the love that we’ve gotten,” Goodwin said. “We didn’t realize that sharing our journey with this baby would gain so many people (supporting). We do have a lot of people that followed us through our journey so maybe we can help people who have dealt with similar things that we have gone through and learn things from people who have been through our situation.”

With the 49ers off this week for the bye, Goodwin and his wife have returned home to Texas to be around family as they attempt to move forward.

Morgan Goodwin told People she experienced mixed emotions holding their son.

“I felt joy in holding my baby even though it was a sad moment,” Morgan said. “I was so amazed. His eyes were still shut at this point, but the hands, the feet. He looked exactly like his daddy.”

Speaking about such a tragic loss only a couple of days after it happened, Marquise Goodwin already has a message for others who might be dealing with something similar.

“Never stop believing,” he said. “The reward will last longer than the pain. Just because something that you wanted your whole life didn’t quite work out as you planned it to — a lot of the times it’s not supposed to work out how you want it to — it will grow you as a person and make you better. I know my wife and I will be better after this situation and we’ll know how to handle it next time even better.

“And faith, faith (is) No. 1, believe that God has a plan for everything. No matter what the outcome is, as long as you pray to him and be genuine because he knows when you’re genuine and when you’re not and maintain the faith, I think things will turn around for you. I know things will turn around for you. And ultimately, you will always be victorious when it’s all said and done.”

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — With a heavy heart, San Francisco 49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin played and produced the team’s biggest play of the year Sunday against the New York Giants.

After San Francisco’s 31-21 win, Goodwin posted to his Instagram account that he and wife Morgan’s baby boy died Sunday morning because of complications during her pregnancy.

“Unfortunately, we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4 a.m.,” Goodwin wrote. “Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan.
“The pain (physically, mentally & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please pray for the Goodwin family.”

Despite the devastating loss, Goodwin managed to play Sunday and came up with an 83-yard touchdown pass from quarterback C.J. Beathard in the first quarter, the longest play from scrimmage by a 49er this season.

A clearly emotional Goodwin evaded New York cornerback Janoris Jenkins and then blew a kiss to the sky before he crossed the goal line. He then knelt in prayer in the end zone as his teammates surrounded him.

Goodwin quickly exited the locker room after the game to return to his family. The 49ers have a bye this week and won’t return to practice until Nov. 20.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been shopping his story to book publishers in recent weeks, sources told ESPN.

Kaepernick is being represented by agent Carlos Fleming, who also represents Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and tennis players Venus Williams and Nick Kyrgios.

The New York Post reported Tuesday that Kaepernick already had signed a book deal with Random House, but a source told ESPN that no deal is in place.

Sources told ESPN that the Kaepernick team strategy was to wait until the first month of the NFL season had passed before considering his options. Once September went by without any team signing him, Kaepernick took two actions: He sued the NFL and shopped his story to publishers.

Kaepernick started protests during the national anthem last season, when he refused to stand for it during a preseason game to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Other players across the NFL have followed suit, and the topic has been a major storyline in the sport.

Kaepernick, meanwhile, has remained unsigned. He has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against the owners, saying they and the league “have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.”

RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy said Wednesday that he isn’t sure what his role will be in Seattle’s backfield going forward but that he’s preparing as if he will play.

Lacy was a surprise inactive for Sunday’s win against the San Francisco 49ers.

“You don’t like what happened or whatever, but at the end of the day, you can just control what you can control,” Lacy said, “continue to go out and practice and see how it goes.”
Lacy, who signed a one-year, $4.25 million contract with the Seahawks over the offseason, only played seven offensive snaps in a Week 1 loss to the Green Bay Packers, his former team. He gained 3 yards on five carries.

He said he was informed that he would be inactive against San Francisco by his position coach Sunday morning, before the team boarded the bus to head to CenturyLink Field.

“There’s no positive way to take it, but I was the most positive I could be,” he said. “It was my first time that happened to me or whatever, so I really don’t know what think of it, just do what I can do.”

Rookie Chris Carson has been Seattle’s primary running back over the first two games. He gained 93 yards on 20 carries on Sunday, while Thomas Rawls was being eased back into action in his first game back following an ankle injury. Carson’s emergence and Rawls’ return have added to the uncertainty about Lacy’s role.

“I’ve just got to continue to be me, go out and practice the same way I’ve been practicing and see what happens week by week,” Lacy said.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll described Lacy being inactive as a matchup-based decision and not one that’s indicative of the running back having fallen out of favor. He said Wednesday that Lacy has responded well over the last few days.

“He’s doing fine. He’s ready to get after it and compete and battle back,” Carroll said. “He respects Thomas Rawls. He understands. That’s not what he wants. I don’t want him to accept it, I want him to be wanting to get back out there with everything he’s got, and that’s exactly the way he should be competing. I wish we could have had him up. We could have used him.”

 NEW YORK — A former New York City police officer, whose claims of police corruption in the 1970s were chronicled in an Al Pacino movie, joined dozens of current and former officers Saturday at a rally in support of getting quarterback Colin Kaepernick a job in the NFL.
Kaepernick, the former starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, became a controversial figure last year after he refused to stand for the national anthem in what he called a protest against oppression of people of color.

He opted out of his contract in March and became a free agent, but so far no NFL teams have signed him for the upcoming season.

The gathering in Brooklyn featured about 75 mostly minority officers wearing black T-shirts reading “#imwithkap.”

One exception was retired officer Frank Serpico, whose exploits were featured in the 1973 film “Serpico.”

He admitted to not being a football fan but said he felt it was important to support Kaepernick for his stance.

“He’s trying to hold up this government, up to our founding fathers,” said Serpico, 81.

Sgt. Edwin Raymond, who said he was heading to work after the rally, spoke of the need for racial healing in the country.

“Until racism in America is no longer taboo, we own up to it, we admit it, we understand it and then we do what we have to do to solve it. Unfortunately we’re going to have these issues,” he said.

Marquise Goodwin paused: out of the track a year ago, so there is no information to the USADA

The United States Anti-Doping Agency suspended Marquise Goodwin on Tuesday for one year for failing to provide his whereabouts for drug testing, but the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver said in a statement that he is no longer competing in track and field.

USADA said in a statement that Goodwin received three whereabouts failures in a 12-month period. USADA requests the information from a select group of athletes for out-of-competition drug testing.

USADA said Goodwin’s suspension began on April 1, the date of his third whereabouts failure.

Goodwin, however, said in a statement provided by the 49ers that he decided to stop competing in track and field so he could focus on his football career and therefore did not supply his whereabouts information to USADA.

“Never in my life have I failed a test,” he said. “I have never been opposed to testing and, in fact, have always been compliant with each and every protocol and policy associated with my competitive career in track and field. More than a year ago, I decided to cease competing in the sport in order to concentrate 100 percent on my NFL career. Therefore, I discontinued all practices associated with competing in track and field, including submitting my ‘Whereabouts’ information.

Marquise Goodwin says he has given up on competing in track and field so he can focus fully on his NFL career.

Marquise Goodwin says he has given up on competing in track and field so he can focus fully on his NFL career.

“It appears that because I did not inform USADA of my plans, my name was inadvertently included in their 2017 testing pool. I greatly appreciate the support of the San Francisco 49ers and the National Football League as I work to clarify this matter,” he said in the statement.

The 49ers confirmed that Goodwin had given up his track and field career in order to fully concentrate on football. The team also said that the NFL will not discipline Goodwin under its policy against performance-enhancing drugs.

“Marquise informed our organization quite some time ago that he has no intentions of competing in track and field and has been entirely focused on his football career for more than a year. We have been in touch with the League office regarding this matter, and understand that Marquise will not be subject to discipline under the NFL Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances as a result of USADA’s decision,” the team said in a statement.

Goodwin, 26, failed to qualify to compete at the 2016 Summer Olympics, when he finished seventh in the men’s long jump at the U.S. Olympic team trials in Eugene, Oregon, last July. He jumped 27 feet, ¾ inches, more than a foot short of Jeffrey Henderson’s winning jump of 28 2¼ inches.

Goodwin, who was with the Buffalo Bills when he competed in the trials, signed with the 49ers as a free agent, receiving a two-year, $6 million contract with $4.45 million guaranteed.

49ers plan to offer Kyle Shanahan head-coaching job

The San Francisco 49ers plan to offer their head-coaching job to Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan once Atlanta’s season ends, sources tell ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Shanahan is interested in the job but is currently focused on Sunday’s NFC Championship Game. The Falcons will host the Green Bay Packers.

The 49ers plan to request a second interview with Shanahan next week after the championship game, a source said. NFL rules allow a second interview following the conference championship.

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels took himself out of the running on Monday, saying it wasn’t the right time and he was going to concentrate on New England’s Super Bowl run.

Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach/offensive line coach Tom Cable was also among the candidates considered by the 49ers, but his agent, Doug Hendrickson, tweeted Tuesday that Cable is “re-affirming” his commitment to the Seahawks and thanked the 49ers for their interest.

Shanahan, 37, is in his second season as Atlanta’s offensive coordinator. The Falcons, led by MVP candidate Matt Ryan, boasted the league’s top scoring offense this season, averaging 33.8 points per game.

Besides interviewing with the 49ers, he also talked to the Broncos and Jaguars about their head-coaching vacancies before Denver hired Vance Joseph and Jacksonville promoted Doug Marrone to fill their jobs.

Before joining the Falcons, Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns (2014), Washington Redskins (2010-13) and Houston Texans (2008-09). He began his NFL coaching career in 2004 as an offensive quality control coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before joining the Texans in 2006 as a wide receivers coach. He was the team’s quarterbacks coach in 2007 before being promoted to offensive coordinator the next season.

Shanahan is the son of longtime NFL coach Mike Shanahan, who hired his son as the Redskins’ offensive coordinator when he was the team’s head coach.

The 49ers are seeking to replace Chip Kelly, who was fired as coach after just one season. San Francisco, which finished 2-14 last season, holds the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft.

The 49ers are also in need of a new general manager after firing Trent Baalke after the season.
