Godwin was waived by the Jaguars on Monday.
Analysis: Godwin had signed a contract extension in March, but he was ultimately a casualty of recent signings by Jacksonville. Selected in the seventh-round of the 2019 Draft, Godwin had been a mainstay on the Jaguars practice squad since, only appearing in three NFL games, all in 2020.

Godwin has signed an extension with the Jaguars.
Analysis: Godwin signed with the Jaguars in 2019 and has appeared in just three games since, as he has primarily been a practice squad player. His 2022 campaign ended prematurely due to an undisclosed injury, but this extension indicates he has put the issue behind him.

Godwin (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, source reports.

Godwin caught three of four targets for 32 yards during Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Colts.
Analysis: The 24-year-old signed to the active roster over the weekend and had his first receptions of the season in the finale. Godwin also appeared in two contests for Jacksonville earlier this year and failed to catch two targets. The 2019 seventh-round could remain with the Jags through the offseason but figures to be a longshot for the season-opening roster next season.

The Jaguars signed Godwin to the 53-man roster Saturday.
Analysis: Godwin has played in two games this season; he was targeted twice but failed to haul in either pass. The second-year wide receiver could handle a larger role in Sunday's matchup against the Colts, as DJ Chark (shin) and Collin Johnson (hamstring) have been ruled out. Godwin slots in as the No. 4 wide receiver behind Laviska Shenault, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley.

The Jaguars activated Godwin (undisclosed) from the practice squad/COVID-19 list Wednesday, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Godwin was promoted to the Jaguars' active roster from the practice squad Saturday.
Analysis: The 24-year-old will serve as an extra player from the practice squad for the second straight contest after failing to catch his two targets last week against the Packers. Laviska Shenault (hamstring) is out and Collin Johnson (hamstring) is questionable, so Godwin could end up serving as the team's No. 4 wide receiver Sunday.

Godwin reverted to the Jaguars' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: The 2019 seventh-round draft choice made his NFL debut at Lambeau Field on Sunday, receiving two snaps on the offensive side and five more on special teams. Godwin was targeted twice by Jake Luton, corralling neither attempt, adding two kick returns for a total of 20 yards during the 24-20 loss to Green Bay. The Georgia standout will remain a developmental option for the Jaguars unless depth is required at wide receiver in the coming weeks.
Nov 16, 2020 5:39 PM EST
The Jaguars elevated Godwin to the active roster Saturday.
Analysis: Godwin will make his NFL debut Sunday against the Packers. The 2019 seventh-round pick wasn't very productive for Georgia in college, posting a 22-373-3 line over 12 games in his senior year. He'll add depth at wide receiver because Laviska Shenault (hamstring) has been ruled out.

Godwin cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Jaguars' practice squad.
Analysis: Godwin spent last season on the Panthers' practice roster and will do the same with the Jaguars in 2020. The Jags are starting the year with six receivers on the roster, so Godwin likely won't be promoted without a slew of injuries.
Sep 7, 2020 11:39 AM EST
Godwin inked a contract with the Jaguars on Thursday.
Analysis: Godwin spent much of the 2019 season on the Jaguars' practice squad and earned another shot. Originally a seventh-round pick by Carolina in 2019, Godwin racked up 133 catches for 1,788 yards in his career at Georgia. He'll likely be battling for a spot on the active roster in 2020 during training camp.
