Chris Godwin Has Successful Knee Surgery

Tampa Bay Buccaneers and former Peen State wide receiver Chris Godwin underwent successful surgery on Monday to repair a torn ACL and MCL. This procedure was performed by world-renowned Dr. James Andrews in Florida. Sources say there was no meniscus damage in his knee.

Goodwin was slated to be one of the top free agents in the 2022 offseason. Godwin was having a career season for the defending Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers recording 98 catches, 1,103 receiving yards, and catching five touchdowns. Godwin suffered the injury in the Buccaneers 9-0 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Dec. 19 when Saints safety P.J Williams hit him on what some consider to be a cheap hit.

Godwin was playing on a franchise tag worth $15.983 million. The franchise tag for 2022 wide receivers is projected to be over $19 million. Tampa Bay has 27 impending free agents and only $33 million in cap space so him being tagged again will be unlikely.

Godwin will have his share of suitors in free agency as he looks to prove that he can bounce back from this setback and continue his stellar career. Godwin has recorded 342 catches for 4843 yards and 29 touchdowns in his five-year career.
