Mike Goodson a No-Show at New York Jets Mandatory Minicamp

Sometimes, attendance can go a long way to determining roster spots.

Jets mandatory minicamp has opened, and one noticeable no-show is running back Mike Goodson. We know his story, he went through injury problems last season, as well as his on-going legal issues.

Goodson was not in attendance at OTA’s either, but as we know those are voluntary. Not being in attendance at the current camp, which is mandatory, does subject Mike Goodson to fines.

It really is no surprise. With the acquisition of Chris Johnson, Mike Goodson likely would be the odd man out. Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson, and Bilal Powell makes for a crowded backfield. There likely isn’t room for Goodson anyway, even if he showed up for everything.

Now, skipping mandatory activities all but makes things official. Goodson has basically punched his plane ticket out of Florham Park, leaving it to the depth chart we were expecting to have.

Well, Goodson, we’ll always have…….well….OK I can’t think of something at the moment, but good luck to you.
