Remember former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver C.J. Goodwin? Well, he’s finally landed with another team as it was announced on Tuesday that he was signed to the practice squad of the Atlanta Falcons.
Goodwin, who signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in June 2014 after Hall of Fame cornerback Mel Blount requested the team take a look at him, spent all of last season on the team’s practice squad after failing to play a snap during the preseason.
After re-signing with the Steelers this past offseason, Goodwin played 76 snaps in three of the team’s five preseason games as he was forced to miss some time with an unspecified lower body injury. While he did register 4 catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in the preseason games that he did play in, he also had a fumble after one of those catches in the Hall of Fame game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Goodwin was finally waived for good by the Steelers right before the start of the 2015 regular season.
