Cornerback C. J. Goodwin is a member of the Dallas Cowboys, who compete in the National Football League. After the 2014 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to take a chance on him and sign him as an undrafted free agent.

On October 9, 2018, Goodwin was signed by the Dallas Cowboys off the Bengals practice squad. He was placed on injured reserve on October 26, after undergoing surgery for a broken forearm. On December 24, he was activated off injured reserve, to play gunner on special teams and improve the coverage units. He played in two games, before being sidelined for 8 contests with a broken arm, returning for the season finale and the playoffs. He finished the season with one special team tackle.

In 2019, Goodwin appeared in 16 games for the first time in his career, registering 2 defensive tackles and 10 special teams tackles (led the team). He had 3 special teams tackles against the Chicago Bears.

On March 30, 2020, Goodwin re-signed with the Cowboys. He was released during final roster cuts on September 5, 2020, but was re-signed two days later. In Week 2 against his former team, the Atlanta Falcons, Goodwin recovered an onside kick with less than two minutes left in the game to set up the game-winning field goal of the improbable 40–39 comeback win.
