It’s been talked about, but now it sounds like it will in fact come to fruition. Marquise Goodwin, who has delivered some of the team’s bigger pass plays of the season, will be seeing more playing time.
That according to head coach Doug Marrone, who admits the deep threat has to see more time on the field. Marrone was asked about both Goodwin and T.J. Graham and their lack of involvement in the offense of late.
“I think that those two guys are obviously guys that have great speed. We have to find a way to get them involved,” said Marrone. “Marquise Goodwin can run intermediate routes. T.J. Graham can run cross field routes so there are ways that we can get them involved, so we have to make sure we look at it.
“Like anything else, I think those guys have talent. There’s no doubt they have talent. They have better than average speed. We have to get the right group of people in the game to be productive and that’s what we’re looking at with everybody.”
Marrone then followed up later by saying he intended to meet with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett to discuss giving more time on the field to Goodwin specifically.
“I think Marquise Goodwin - and I talked to coach Hackett about this I think we have to get him in there more,” said Marrone. “I think T.J. has to work on becoming more consistent.”
Goodwin played 26 of the team’s 67 snaps on offense or 39 percent of the plays.
