Richard Goodman (born December 30, 1987) is an American football wide receiver who is a free agent. He attended Florida State University, as a member of the 2010 graduating class. Shortly after the draft ended, Goodman joined the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent.
Goodman had a few starts for Florida State, but was hindered mostly by injuries throughout his college career.
After going undrafted in the 2010 NFL Draft, Goodman signed with the San Diego Chargers as a undrafted free agent on May 10, 2010; he was later cut and signed to the practice squad before the regular season.
Goodman was signed from the Chargers practice squad to the active roster on October 12, 2010, for a one-year contract. Goodman was cut by the Chargers on November 6, 2010 to make room for Steve Gregory, who was returning from a suspension. Goodman was re-signed to the Chargers' practice squad. On January 1, 2012, Goodman returned a second quarter kickoff for a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders. It was the first Chargers' kickoff return for a touchdown since 2008.
