Not necessarily, it depends on where the gun was found. If the gun was out in plain sight, and it is reasonable Goodson knew the gun was there in the car, then both can be charged with possession. NJ has strict laws regarding how fire arms can be transported, and if the gun was out in plain sight and the bullets were near by then yes Goodson can be charged even if the owner claims it is his gun.
We are all just splitting hairs over the semantics of what happend.
At the end of the day he has to be cut for puttin himself in that position, and as a clear directive that these characters won't be tolerated.
Idzik must make a stand or open the flood gates for more of the same.
I seriously question what the hell goes through the head of some of these guys. You are an NFL running back, make millions of dollars, and decide to risk it all riding around with a gun and smokin weed??? While SEVERELY intoxicated.
Jeez this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and they just blow it all away. Was really looking forward to seeing Goodson play for us. What a shame.
Why do we take for granted these dudes are smart or have good judgemental and critical thinking skills? In my younger days of being an athlete, and playing for an academically elite HS, I vehemently hated the "dumb jock" stereotype. But the more and more you play, and the more and more you have new teammates, the more and more you realize where the "dumb jock" stereotype comes from.
I dont think you can name one team that has not had a player arrested in the last five years. The difference is in how its handled. We shall see. If they eat the 2 mill signing bonus and say goodbye, that sends a clear message that Idzick is not f'ing around. Goodson was by no means saving our backfield by the way.
Goodson only got a 1 million dollar signing bonus, he can be cut right now and save 333K against the cap and have 1 million in dead money. His salary wasnt guaranteed.
If he was the passenger in the car and the gun wasnt his he will absolutely not be cut.
What would the grounds for cutting him be - having bad/dumb friends?
That friend is an ex-con and he's riding around with him in a 4-wheeled bong in the wee hours of the morning. While my pitchfork isn't out yet in the effort to yell "cut him," you don't think the situation he put himself in raises a red flag or 2?
Goodson was supposed to be a pretty important part of our offense. Even worse now McKnight is probably staying. This blows.. I don't know why you seem so happy?
The AGENDA driven troll gets so happy because this isn't about the Jets. This is about HIM. He wants to be proven right no matter what the cost. Its a sign of a person with low self esteem. Probably picked on in school.
