Free agent RB Mike Goodson skipped his Thursday morning court appearance and will be arrested if he misses the next one.
Goodson couldn't get a flight out of Texas to New Jersey because he's having "financial issues." He was, of course, scheduled to appear in court on weapons charges and possession of marijuana. At age 27, Goodson's football career may be at the end of the line. The Jets released him eight days ago. Thu, Jun 26, 2014 09:57:00 AM

Jets released RB Mike Goodson.

This was a long time coming. Just two months after signing a three-year deal last offseason, Goodson was arrested on weapons and marijuana charges. He served a four-game suspension, played sparingly upon his return, and then blew out his knee. Goodson didn't even show up for this week's mandatory minicamp. The Jets released him with a "left squad" designation, likely because they'll try to recoup some bonus money blown on this mistake.

Jets coach Rex Ryan is "miffed" at RB Mike Goodson's absence from mandatory minicamp.

So are we, and apparently, so is Goodson's agent. "Mike must be accountable and responsible for his own actions, and comprehend not only effective communication, but simple communication," Goodson's rep said. Goodson is widely expected to be released, but that's a poor reason to rack up the over $70,000 in fines he'll incur if he blows off all three days. Now 27 and rehabbing a torn ACL, Goodson should attract scant interest once he's finally cut loose.

Jets RB Mike Goodson did not report to mandatory minicamp Tuesday.

Goodson is subject to $70,000-plus in fines if he skips all three days. He's currently rehabbing a torn ACL, and the team has indicated they've yet to hear from him after he also skipped OTAs. Goodson is expected to be released.
Tue, Jun 17, 2014 11:40:00 AM

Jets RB Mike Goodson hasn't reported to OTAs.

Goodson is going to be released at some point. He's recovering from a torn ACL and MCL, and coach Rex Ryan has no idea where Goodson is at in his rehab because he simply hasn't reported to the team. We'd tentatively expect Goodson to be ready for training camp, though he may find it hard to find another team willing to give him a chance. Goodson was an off-field mess last summer.
Wed, Jun 4, 2014 01:16:00 PM

New York Daily News' Manish Mehta believes RB Mike Goodson will not be a Jet when the 2014 season begins.

Goodson is expendable after the Jets added Chris Johnson and Daryl Richardson. Goodson's one-year stint with the Jets has been tumultuous to say the least. Arrested on weapons charges and possession of marijuana just two months after signing a three-year deal, Goodson only played two games for the Jets after serving a four-game suspension to begin the season and suffering a torn ACL and MCL to end it. Coming off a devastating injury with myriad off-the-field woes, Goodson should find it difficult to find another NFL home.
Sat, May 17, 2014 10:27:00 AM

Jets RB Mike Goodson (ACL, MCL surgery) will be sidelined for the "near future," GM John Idzik stated Monday.

The Jets just began their offseason conditioning program, and Goodson isn't available as he rehabs last October's knee injury. Goodson is not expected to be on the Jets' Week 1 roster following the team's acquisition of Chris Johnson.
Mon, Apr 21, 2014 02:05:00 PM

Following the signing of Chris Johnson, Mike Goodson is expected to be released before the season.

Goodson is now the No. 4 running back in New York, behind Johnson, Chris Ivory, and Bilal Powell. Alex Green is currently the No. 5 back. Goodson's one-year tenure with the Jets has been an interesting one. He was popped on gun charges last offseason before tearing his ACL in October. He's still only 27.
Wed, Apr 16, 2014 04:15:00 PM

Jets RB Mike Goodson will return to court Wednesday morning for a hearing on his two weapons charges stemming from Goodson's 2013 arrest.

A hearing is scheduled for May 19. Goodson was arrested two months after signing with the Jets when police found him and a buddy, both of whom "appeared intoxicated," stopped in the middle lane of Interstate 80. During a search, police discovered a gun with hollow-point bullets in the glove compartment. Goodson allegedly told police he owned the gun, but has since retracted. Goodson was suspended for the first four games of last season for substance abuse violations. Last year's transgression would fall under the personal conduct policy.
Wed, Apr 2, 2014 08:43:00 PM

Mike Goodson pleaded not guilty on charges of weapon possession Wednesday morning.

Goodson was arrested on weapons charges and possession of marijuana back in May. He reportedly had a .45-caliber handgun loaded with an illegal hollow-point bullet known as a "cop killer." If convicted, Goodson could face up to ten years in prison. He had his arraignment in Morristown, N.J. on Wednesday morning. Goodson is under contract for $1 million with the Jets in 2014.
Wed, Jan 15, 2014 11:30:00 AM

Mike Goodson was indicted Thursday by a grand jury on weapons charges stemming from his May 17 arrest.

Goodson was indicted on second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon after he was found with a .45-caliber handgun loaded with an illegal hollow-point bullet known as a "cop killer" because it can penetrate body armor. Goodson faces a maximum of ten years in prison if convicted. The next step is an arraignment. Goodson is on injured reserve after he tore his ACL last month.
Fri, Nov 8, 2013 08:29:00 AM

Jets placed RB Mike Goodson on injured reserve with a torn left ACL, ending his season.

It's the second time in three seasons Goodson will finish the year on injured reserve. Talented but fragile, Goodson totaled 80 yards on nine touches after returning from his four-game suspension. Goodson is signed through 2015, but has no remaining guaranteed money. He will have to prove he's healthy next summer to keep his roster spot. Talent has never been the issue for the former fourth-round pick.
Tue, Oct 15, 2013 02:55:00 PM

Jets RB Mike Goodson tore his ACL and MCL in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

Goodson's first season as a Jet can officially be called a nightmare. He was arrested on marijuana and weapons charges in May, went AWOL at the beginning of training camp and was then slapped with a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Goodson returned as a backup behind Bilal Powell in Week 5, but this injury puts his 2014 roster spot in doubt. Chris Ivory will see a bump in snaps going forward.
Mon, Oct 14, 2013 11:50:00 AM

Jets RB Mike Goodson will go for an MRI on his injured knee Monday.

Per beat writer Manish Mehta, a person close to Goodson says "it doesn't look good." The MRI will confirm whether Goodson has a knee ligament tear. If he does, Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory will benefit with more touches.
Sun, Oct 13, 2013 08:10:00 PM

ESPN New York suggests Mike Goodson could be out "awhile" after a fourth-quarter knee injury in Week 6.

Coach Rex Ryan had no updates in his post-game presser, but should on Monday. The Jets are one of the league's more-open teams when it comes to injury info. Goodson finished Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh with five offensive touches.
