After losing Shonn Greene to the Tennessee Titans, the Jets have signed former Raiders running back Mike Goodson to a three-year deal, $6.9 million deal. Last season, Goodson rushed for 221 yards on 35 carries and caught 16 passes for 195 yards and a touchdown.

The Jets running back group consists of Bilal Powell, Joe McKnight and Mike Goodson.

The fourth-round pick from Texas A&M will be in the mix for the starting job, competing with Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight, but no one in that group is the kind of back who is a full game workhorse. Look for the carries to be split somewhat evenly unless something else develops with the running back position through the draft.

The Jets also announced the re-signing of full back Lex Hilliard.
