    OFFICIAL: We Got Our Running Back: Mike Goodson

    Marcus devon goodson ‏@YoUnGgOoDsOn
    Congrats to my big bro @GoodNplenty33 Signing with the New York jets !!! #letseat

    Mike Goodson is a solid, young back. At only 25 years old, he should come pretty cheap as well. Did real well without McFadden in the lineup. Bigger back, has a solid power/speed combo, and avg. 6 yards a carry in Oakland. Really good hands as well, and is a fit for the WCO. Not against the move at all really. Would've preferred to draft someone, but it's not a bad move.

    That's actually a really good under the radar move. Goodson also avg'd 4.4 ypc a couple years ago in Carolina and he can actually make plays as a receiver out of the backfield (57 rec in '10, 16 last season). He's our first everydown back since Curtis Martin. Dirt cheap too. Smart move by Idzik.







    Fantasy Sleeper.

    don`t say that too loud. SAR I might hear and complain that more poor people are going to buy tickets and urinate on his $279 a month lease.

    From PFF

    Another note involving the Jets: running back Mike Goodson made a stop in Cincinnati Wednesday but didn’t settle on a deal and will visit New York on Thursday. Goodson didn’t get much time on the field after being brought in to be part of the Oakland backfield in 2012 (35 carries, 16 catches), but when he did, he impressed. His PFF Elusive Rating in those limited touches was an off-the-charts 124.5 thanks to the 13 missed tackles he forced and his average of 4.89 yards after contact. His Yards Per Route Run number (2.60) was also something to boast about, albeit again based on a small sample.

    Very nice. Runs hard and has good speed. Excellent receiver too. I like this move a lot.

    I've heard a lot about this guy...

    Dynamic, explosive, game changer. I've seen these tossed around a lot from one of the JI West Coast scouts.

    In all honesty though the Raiders are my madden team and this guy is a good pickup.

    I'm guesing one year deal at a little south of $1 mil. Good, under the radar affordable signing of a player who is going to be a big contributor next year. Not a big sexy name though he will end up being a sexy name by week 8 next season.

    The dude is from Irvington, NJ. He's coming home.

    On a side note, has anyone been to Irvington?

    Good job, Michael. Well done. I hope the contract is a good one for you.
