Free-agent RB Mike Goodson (Jets) did not appear in court Thursday, June 26, on charges related to drug and weapon possession. Goodson could be arrested if he does not appear for a court date on July 24. Goodson's acting attorney said his client could not secure a flight from Texas.
Huddle Up: Things continue to spiral in the wrong direction for the RB, who was recently released by the Jets after failing to show up for OTAs.

The New York Jets have released RB Mike Goodson with a left team designation.
Huddle Up: Goodson had an opportunity to become the Jets' feature back last season, but his off-the-field shenanigans cost him that shot, and when he opted to stay away from minicamp this season the team had had enough.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson did not report to mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 17, according to a league source. Goodson is subject to a fine, per the collective bargaining agreement. His fines could reach $70,000 if he's a no-show for the entire three-day minicamp. Goodson continues to rehab from a surgically repaired knee, and he didn't participate in any voluntary workouts.
Huddle Up: There's still time for the situation to change, but don't be surprised if the RB's time with the Jets is done, limited to 2 games and 7 rushes.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson has not attended organized team activities and head coach Rex Ryan does not know where he is. He is a longshot to make the team.
Huddle Up: Goodson has some off-the-field issues to deal with; meanwhile, the Jets have Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory. That combination adds up to Goodson quite likely not making the roster.

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson's next hearing has been delayed until June 12. Goodson and a friend were arrested last May when his SUV was stopped, and Goodson and his friend were both found intoxicated. The police also found a hand gun loaded with a hollow-point bullet in the glove compartment.
Huddle Up: Even if Goodson clears his legal hurdles, avoids league discipline and makes the Jets' final roster, touches figure to be hard to come by with Chris Johnson, Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory all established ahead of him on the team's RB depth chart.

The New York Jets have restructured the contract of RB Mike Goodson, which has lowered his salary cap figure from $1.9 million to $1.28 million.
Huddle Up: Goodson will get a second season in the Big Apple after being limited to 2 games and 80 yards from scrimmage due to a league disciplinary suspension and a knee injury in 2013.

The New York Jets could consider releasing RB Mike Goodson because of his off-field issues and a $650,000 roster bonus he is scheduled to receive.
Huddle Up: Chris Ivory looked capable of being the Jets' primary back last season, with Bilal Powell as his backup. Ivory has injury issues, but neither back carries Goodson's off-the-field baggage. The $650K bonus might be enough to convince the Jets he's not worth the trouble.
