"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.
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.
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."
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.
