More NFL offseason: League minicamp dates | Latest news, notes

With running back Mike Goodson facing legal problems in the form of weapons charges and a recovery from a torn ACL, he reportedly will not report to mandatory Jets minicamp this week, according to the NY Daily News.

Last season, Goodson -- who signed a three-year, $6.9 million deal in March 2013 -- was suspended for the first four games of the year, and when he returned to the field, he played only two games before his injury, touching the ball a total of 11 times for 80 yards.

But it's getting tougher to expect that Goodson will return to the team for 2014, particularly since the Jets signed Chris Johnson and Daryl Richardson in the offseason and already have Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory on the roster.

Goodson skipped all of the Jets OTAs, and if he doesn't show this week for mandatory camp, he's subject to an approximate $70,000 fine.
