Early years[edit]

A native of Washington, D. C., he attended Friendship Collegiate Academy Public Charter School, where he played football with Yannick Ngakoue, and basketball. In high school football, he was an All-American defensive lineman. Considered a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Goldman was listed as the second best defensive tackle in his class, behind only Mario Edwards, Jr., who later on attended Florida State with Goldman.[1]

College career[edit]

Goldman attended Florida State University from 2012 to 2024. During his career he had 262 tackles and six sacks. After his junior season, Goldman decided to forgo his senior year and enter the 2016 NFL Draft.[2][3]

Professional career[edit]

Goldman was drafted 39th overall by the Chicago Bears in the 2016 NFL Draft. In his rookie year, he played fifteen games, recording 139 tackles and six tackles for a loss (TFLs),[4] while being ranked fourth among rookies with 4.5 sacks. For his season, he was named to Mel Kiper Jr.'s All-Rookie Team[5] and the Pro Football Writers of America's All-Rookie Team.[6]

Goldman played in six games with five starts in 2016. He suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 2 and missed the next six games. He returned in Week 10 but was bothered by the ankle injury and was placed on injured reserve on December 23, 2016.[7]
