Jets still expect Mike Goodson to report

The Jets haven’t said much about running back Mike Goodson since placing him on the reserve-did not report list at the start of training camp which led plenty of people to assume that Goodson wouldn’t wind up playing for the Jets at all.

General Manager John Idzik said otherwise during an appearance on WFAN in New York on Monday. Idzik was asked if he thought Goodson, who is facing gun and drug charges from a May arrest and whose reasons for no-showing at camp have gone undocumented thus far, would join the team this season.

“Yes, I would expect him,” Idzik said, via Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.

Idzik offered no timeframe or other information about when Goodson might make his long awaited return to the Jets, who have Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell currently occupying the top two spots on the depth chart. Joe McKnight’s summer has been a total disaster, however, and that could explain why the team’s leaving the light on for Goodson despite his self-imposed exile from the team during training camp.

    Glad the Raiders did not resign this fool.

    Maybe he cant report because they told him do not leave the state of NJ until after your court date. Just thinking outloud. It’s so strange he didnt report.

    I’m thinking Fiorello La Guardia will return back to NY before Goodson does.

    I’m no lawyer but it seems like:

    a) He’s not allowed to leave the state of New Jersey

    b) He’s in rehab and the Jets are protecting his confidentiality

    That is a very strong possibility!!

    There is no reason for ANY The New York Jets player to be in New York since they play in New Jersey!!

    a) The New York Jets training facility and game day stadium happens to be in New Jersey…

    b) most probably in 30 to 90 day rehab

    You forgot shoelaces. Cigarettes are usually allowed, but not freely. Smoke break, then group.
