Mike Goodson admits his arrest was “embarrassing”

Jets running back Mike Goodson was short on specifics, but said that his absence from camp, and his subsequent four-game suspension, will give him a chance at a greater gain.

Goodson was back in the locker room Tuesday, and admitted his arrest in May on weapons and drugs charges was “embarrassing.” He said his absence since then was a “personal matter.”

I just have my life in order (now),” Goodson said, via Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. “I was able to get my life in order and able to just look at some things that I wasn’t happy with in myself.”

Goodson has always been a talented player with maturity issues (on and off the field), but the Jets appear willing to give him a chance to collect himself. As one of General Manager John Idzik’s first free agent signings, they need that, if only to save face.

But saving Goodson from himself might be a bigger win.

    Good job kid, get your life in order first; football is secondary. Good luck.

    I agree with areyoudue; I hope he gets his life in order first before worrying about football at all. Football will follow just fine if he’s in a good place in his personal life. Some people just need to hit rock bottom before they finally get their life together and, whether he plays for the Jets or not, I hope that now happens for Mike Goodson.
