In 1926, Goodman joined the Chicago Bulls of the AFL, a new league started by Red Grange's agent to allow Grange to play in New York. Goodman's Bulls (5-6-3) were one of only four teams to survive the entire season as the other franchises folded. At the end of the year, the owners had no money to pay the players and the league folded. In 1927, Goodman played one game for the Chicago Cardinals in NFL.
Goodman played tackle at Baylor University from 1921-1923, and at the University of Chicago in 1924. He then played as a tackle and end in the American Football League with the Chicago Bulls in 1926, and as a tackle in the NFL with the Chicago Cardinals in 1927.
