Marquise Goodwin knows the risks he's taking to chase his dream of being an Olympic long jumper.
The Buffalo Bills wide receiver has missed offseason workouts this year while training for the track competition.
"I know it is a risk," he said. "I want a second contract. I'd love it to be in Buffalo. I love football. But I know how important it is to live your life like you want to. I know some organizations wouldn't allow that, but Rex (Ryan) does and I'm so appreciative of that."
There have been reports that the Bills will move on from Goodwin if he makes the U.S. Olympic team.
"The way Rex sees it," Goodwin said, "is that you're a man at the end of the day. He said, 'I wouldn't want to take you from a dream of yours. And if that's a dream of yours, go do it.'"
