RB Goodson arraigned, pleads not guilty on weapons, drug charges
Jets RB Mike Goodson, who was arrested in May of last year for marijuana and weapons possession after police found him and a friend stopped in the middle of a New Jersey highway with drugs and a loaded 45 caliber pistol with hollow point bullets, pled not guilty to all charges.
Goodson was offered a plea deal to cop to 2nd degree possession of a weapon and serve one year in prison but he rejected the plea. He’s due back in court next month.
Goodson was signed last off-season as a compliment to Jets RB’s Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell but only played 2 games for Gang Green after he had to serve a 4 game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. When he returned in week 5 he only lasted 2 games after tearing an ACL in his knee.
Goodson’s future with the Jets and the NFL seems pretty dim at this point. The Jets did not provide any statements regarding Goodson following these developments.
