RB Goodson released

“Mike has to be accountable and responsible for his own decisions and actions,” – Kennard McGuire

Maligned running back Mike Goodson has been released by the New York Jets today after he was a no show at mandatory Training Camp this week.  The event itself was a culmination of a long off season where Goodson was supposed to be recovering from ACL/MCL surgery.

The Jets, who signed Goodson to a $6.9 million three year free agent deal last year, is pending charges on a drugs and weapons arrest last year, was a no call/no show to the 11 prior voluntary training sessions leading up to Tuesday’s mandatory Training Camp.

I won’t get into personal conversations that we had with others,”  General manager John Idzi said, “but again, very suffice to say we gave Mike, I think, ample opportunity.”

In other camp news, QB Geno Smith seems ready to take on a bigger role in his upcoming sophomore season with the Jets.  Although Smith had a shaky end to last season, he is looking to have a sharp training camp this year to stave off Michael Vick from the number one QB spot.

Be sure to cheer on your jets as they attempt to get back into the NFL Playoffs.  Great seats and cheap tickets are still available so get  yours now!
