“Freak athlete” is a term used far too often when assessing talented guys in sports. But then, there are those times where it’s actually accurate. That’s the case for Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin who placed second in the long jump in the Pan Am Games. That’s remarkable.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin has won a silver medal in the long jump at the Pan Am Games, leaping 27 feet, 1 3/4 inches (8.27 meters).
Goodwin took advantage of the location – Toronto is just across the border from Buffalo – and the date in July. The Olympics next year in Rio de Janeiro are in August and could make it difficult for Goodwin, taking him away from his NFL training camp.
