The Jets signed running back Mike Goodson to a three-year, $6.9 million deal in March and it looks like Goodson is going to have spend some of that money defending himself in court. Goodson was indicted on two weapons charges on Thursday, the Morris County (N.J.) Prosecutor's office announced.
The charges stem from Goodson's May 17 arrest when he was the passenger in a car whose driver was charged with DUI. Goodson has been indicted on a second-degree charge of unlawful possession of a handgun and a fourth-degree charge of prohibited weapons and devices.
The second-degree charge was handed down because police found a .45-caliber Taurus handgun in the car. The fourth-degree charge was handed down because the gun was loaded with a hollow-point bullet.
"Nothing surprising," Goodson's lawyer, Tony Fusco, Jr. said, via the New York Daily News. "We had been waiting for it, at least now we start the formal procedure to get this guy exonerated."

With the Jets being on bye this week after a 5-4 start to the season, it’s time to look ahead to the second half of the season and start thinking about what we can expect going forward. As much fun as it is to point out how the Jets have already exceeded the expectations of all the “experts” out there, what’s even more fun is to look at some of the players on this roster...
On a day that saw the New York Jets earn what might be the most impressive win of the 2013 season, it was no surprise that the defensive put together what may be its best all-around performance of the season.
With the monumental task of stopping Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints’ high-powered offense looming (albeit not inside the comfort of their dome), this Jets defense appeared...

If the season ended today, the final team in the AFC playoffs would be none other than the New York Jets. After being left for dead prior to the season by most experts, and some other folks that can’t quite be considered experts (such as myself), the Jets have put themselves in position to make a run into the postseason. It hasn’t been an easy route to this point either. The...
Rontez Miles has been through quite a bit as a young man, but he is ready to make his impact on the NFL stage. The hard hitting ball hawk from Cal (PA) was finally activated to the New York Jets 53 man roster. Rontez is a very good friend of mine and I am excited […]
A win over the Patriots? Been there, done that.
Beating a Super Bowl favorite mid-season? The name “Kerry Collins” rings a bell.
Monday Night Football? Comebacks? An overwhelming string of luck that should logically fade, but so far hasn’t? Yup, seems about right.
So forgive me if I’m not sold on the Geno Smith Era yet. Frankly, we’ve been down this road before, and...
