Bills receiver Goodwin gets silver in long jump at Pan Am

TORONTO (AP) 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).

Fellow American Jeffery Henderson won Wednesday at 28-0 1/4 (8.54 meters), and Emiliano Lasa of Uruguay took bronze with 26-9 3/4 (8.17 meters).

Goodwin was a two-time NCAA champion in the long jump at the University of Texas and finished 10th in three years ago at the London Olympics.

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.
