    Gun charge against former Jet Goodson to be dropped

    A gun-possession charge against former Jets running back Mike Goodson will be dropped by prosecutors, according to nj.com. Goodson's co-defendant in the case pleaded guilty and admitted that the gun was his. He said Goodson had no knowledge that the gun was in the car when police searched the vehicle. The Jets released Goodson after he failed to show up for minicamp prior to the beginning of last season.

    Jets release RB Mike Goodson

    The Jets have released veteran running back Mike Goodson after he failed to show up to minicamp on Tuesday. General manager John Idzik told the Newark Star-Ledger that he was released with the designation "left squad." "Obviously, it's disappointing," Idzik said. "Like we do with all of our players, we gave Mike, we feel in good conscience, every opportunity here with the Jets. Unfortunately, it didn't work out. So we made the move, ultimately, that we felt was best for the team." Goodson is facing weapons charges stemming from an arrest last year. He was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season and later tore his ACL.

    Report: 'Matter of when -- not if' Mike Goodson gets released

    Mike Goodson was not in attendance at Jets minicamp on Tuesday, fueling speculation that he won't be a part of the roster this season. The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta seems to think so, posting on Twitter that "[i]t's a matter of when -- not if -- the Jets part ways with Mike Goodson." Goodson tore his ACL last season and had an off-field incident last spring that is still caught up in the courts. He would enter camp behind Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell if he did show up.

    How will the Jets split carries this season?

    The Jets have to figure out who will get the majority of carries this season out of Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Daryl Richardson, Alex Green and Mike Goodson, reports ESPN. The report says two of them likely won't make the team, but figuring out the carries could be tough. Johnson averaged 18 rushes per game in his six seasons with the Titans. Ivory averaged 12 per game last season as the Jets' leading rusher. Powell averaged 11 last season. That's a total of 41 rushes for their top three backs. "Everybody's goal is to put wins on the board," said Johnson. "We're not really worried about the carries, who's going to play this down and that down. We've all just got one focus and that's winning."

    Jets assuming Mike Goodson will be on roster

    Jets general manager John Idzik expects running back Mike Goodson, who's facing weapons charges, to be on the 2014 roster. "We assume Mike is a Jet," Idzik told NorthJersey.com. "We've always made that assumption. We assume that Mike is on our roster." Even if Goodson avoids jail time and an NFL suspension, he'd be behind Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell in the Jets' backfield. Goodson's next court date is May 19.

    Mike Goodson still out for a while

    Jets coach Rex Ryan said Monday he hopes to have running back Mike Goodson this season, but his roster spot is in jeopardy with Chris Johnson now in New York, reports ESPN. Goodson is coming off a torn ACL last year, and he's dealing with pending legal charges (and a possible suspension) stemming from his arrest last May. He is not expected to participate in offseason workouts. "If Goodson comes back, we'll see what he can provide," said Ryan, adding: "I don't anticipate anything in the near future that he'll be able to do, but we'll see how he progresses."

    Chris Johnson's signing could lead to Mike Goodson's release

    If the Jets sign running back Chris Johnson, they'd have five veteran running backs and the most expendable would be Mike Goodson, reports ESPN.com. Goodson is recovering from ACL surgery and dealing with legal issues, the report noted. Cutting Goodson would save the Jets $720,000.

    No plea offer on table for Mike Goodson

    There is no plea offer on the table in the weapons possession case against Jets running back Mike Goodson, reports The Star-Ledger. After rejecting an offer that would have forced him to spend at least a year in jail, Goodson was indicted in November on two weapons possession charges, the report said. The prosecutor has not made another offer. Goodson intends to prove his innocence, according to his attorney. The next pretrial court date is May 19.
