08/10/15 - WR Marquise Goodwin is in a titanic battle to make the roster, which may explain why Goodwin opted to compete in a pair of track and field events earlier this summer. In late June he finished fourth in the USA Track and Field Championships in the long jump, the event he competed in at the 2012 Summer Olympics. That finish prevented him from qualifying for the world championships taking place in Beijing at the of the month. Thus, he competed in the Pan American Games in Toronto two weeks before the start of training camp, and won the silver medal.
"It was just something I wanted to do, so I did it," Goodwin said. "Just want to live my life how I kind of want to, within the rules of my contract and everything. Just focusing on football now, the football season, and getting ready." Goodwin denied that he's starting to think about a second career in case he doesn't stick with the Bills, but he has an uphill fight with Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, Percy Harvin, Chris Hogan, Marcus Easley, and draft pick Dezmin Lewis on the depth chart. "I'm not thinking with that mindset that football won't work out," said Goodwin. "I know football will work out, but if I did want to do track and field, I know I could. But right now I want to play football."
