NFL Rumors: New York Jets expected to release Mike Goodson


The New york Jets inked free agent running back Chris Johnson to a two-year contract on Wednesday and doing so likely means the end of the road for one of the backs already on roster.

According to Jets beat writer mannish Mehta, the team is likely going to be cutting running back Mike Goodson to clean up the running back position on the depth chart.

Bizarre doesn’t even begin to explain Goodson’s stint with the Jets. Almost as soon as he was signed he was busted for being the car with loaded weapons and barfing all over himself when the cops showed up. From there, his hardly meaningful playing time with the team coupled with the off-field attention made him one of the more laughable signings in Jets history.

Still, even with all of that aside, Goodson seems like a good candidate to be cut anyways and that means his tenure with New York is coming closer and closer to it’s conclusion.

    If the idiot Manish is reporting this then odds are that Goodson remains with the Jets!

      I have to agree with Manish being an idiot! LOL This guy has a talent for making up his own stories, and a knack for “sports fiction”! Yet this site constantly uses him as a source! Makes me wonder at times!

    Good for the Jets! It’s about time they kicked this drug addicted gun toting moron to the curb! Too bad Woody and Idzik decided to keep him around…I guess retrieving Woody’s bonus money was more important then the team’s image. Good Riddance!!
