Now Commenting On:

Mike Goodson was due in court on Monday on gun charges, but the hearing was postponed (Cosentino, May 20).

Goodson is due in court again on June 12.

He was previously offered a plea deal of a three-year prison sentence, which he would have to serve one year before being eligible for parole, the report said. Goodson rejected the offer.

Goodson was indicted on second degree unlawful possession of a weapon — for the loaded gun in his car — and fourth degree prohibited weapons and devices — for the hollow-point bullets (TJB, November 7).

He played in just two games for the Jets after serving a suspension for performance-enhancing drugs, then tearing both his ACL and MCL in October.

The team currently has six running backs on the roster.

Goodson has a history of being an electric player, but with the addition of Chris Johnson and other potential special teams playmakers being added to the roster like Jacoby Ford and Jalen Saunders Goodson might have a time beating out Bilal Powell for the 3rd running back spot.  While the court issues hang over his head, even if they are resolved it might be that the recovery from ACL/MCL that might prove just as daunting.
