According to Mike Garafolo of USA TODAY Sports, the lawyer of Jets running back Mike Goodson is claiming that Garant Evans has told New Jersey police that the gun that was found in their car the night they were arrested was his firearm.
The attorney for New York Jets running back Mike Goodson told USA TODAY Sports on Friday the discovery he received on his client’s case from New Jersey State Police revealed Garant Evans, the driver of the car when both were arrested, has claimed ownership of the gun that was found.
Goodson and Evans both were charged with possession of a firearm and hollow-point bullets, as well as possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Goodson’s attorney, Anthony Fusco, said Friday the reports he received indicated Evans told police the 45-caliber Taurus Millennium handgun was his when he was questioned at the Netcong, N.J., State Police station immediately following the arrest.
The unlawful possession of a handgun charge, a third-degree offense, carries a minimum three years in prison if convicted.
If gun charges against Goodson are dropped, his chances of sticking with the Jets drastically improve.
If this is in fact true, Goodson’s NFL career should be just fine. Hopefully he’s learned that he needs to be careful of who he associates himself with.

The Turn On The Jets 12 pack is back with an all New York Jets offensive line edition. This year’s group has the potential to be the deepest and most productive offensive line the Jets have put together in a few seasons. The big uglies never get enough love or recognition so this 12 pack is for you.
1. Nick Mangold - Great Beard, yes. On the field Mangold was arguably the best...
Here at Turn On The Jets, we decided to take a page out of Robert Mays book over at Grantland (a polite way of saying rip his article idea off) by counting down the 115 days until the New York Jets kick off, with a daily reason to get excited about their return. Mays has the whole NFL to work with, we only have the Goddamn Jets…now there is a challenge, step your game up Mays...
The Jets are already giving Kellein Winslow a try out next week during their mandatory minicamp. It looks like they’ll take a look at another veteran.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jets will take a look at wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker.
In addition to TE Kellen Winslow Jr., Jets also have invited WR Mike Sims-Walker to try out during this week's camp.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that the Jets are not close to naming a starting quarterback just yet.
“I don’t believe we’re close to that right now,” Ryan told the media after practice Wednesday. “Obviously, we don’t have to make that move right now. Until we feel 100 percent comfortable with that decision, we’ll leave it to competition.”
Veteran tight end Kellen Winslow, Jr. will get a tryout with the New York Jets on Tuesday during their minicamp.
Winslow barely played last season, making just one reception for New England in one game. He spent his first four seasons in Cleveland, making the Pro Bowl in 2007. Winslow then joined Tampa Bay for three seasons.
He could fill a void at the position for the Jets, who...
Not long after Tim Tebow was released by the New York Jets, there was some speculation that the New England Patriots could be interested in signing him. Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been complimentary of Tebow in the past, and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels traded up to draft Tebow when he was head coach [...]
If the New York Jets want to be a better football team instead of going paintball shooting, they could simply just exercise better focus and discipline and stop running into each others behinds.
According to Busted Coverage, the players decided to skip the last day of OTAs and go to a secret location to engage in some activities that will improve team chemistry. I hope that works...
Jeff Cumberland and Hayden Smith not doing it for you?
Well welcome Kellen Winslow Jr., for a try-out, anyway.

As we all know by now, New York Jets’ receiver Santonio Holmes is recovering from a foot surgery and will not be ready for the start of training camp. That, however, doesn’t mean Holmes hasn’t found a way to help out. According to Brian Costello of the NYPost.com, Holmes has been mentoring second year receiver Stephen Hill.
According to the receiver coach Sanjay Lal, Holmes...
BY NICK ST. DENISWhile Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith battle over the New York Jets' lone starting quarterback job, they're depending on a random hodgepodge of receivers to help their respective cases. (photo: Billtacular, Flickr)Gang Green has been without their No. 1 wideout during OTAs. They're also missing their No. 2 this week. Oh, and their No. 3 and No. 4 options...
With wide receivers Santonio Holmes, Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley all recovering from injuries, Mark Sanchez doesn’t know much about the receivers he’s been throwing to at Jets OTAs. He might start by learning their names.
Sanchez has been throwing passes to five entirely new receivers during organized team activities over the past few weeks, and he doesn’t even know their...

The New York Jets have brought in former-Pro Bowl tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. for a tryout after losing Dustin Keller to the Miami Dolphins via free agency. The move is interesting because Winslow Jr. was at one point looking like one of the better tight ends in the NFL — where his best season was in 2007, with the Cleveland Browns, where he caught 82 balls for 1,107 receiving...
