College career[edit]

Goodman had a few starts for Florida State, but was hindered mostly by injuries throughout his college career.

Professional career[edit]

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.[1][2] 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.[citation needed]

On September 2, 2013, Goodman was released by the Chargers.
