Let the games begin.

Coming in this afternoon are two workouts, set to happen at Florham Park tomorrow. The first was rumored earlier, and we reported here, that the Jets are interested in bringing Brandon Gibson into the fold.  He is set to come in for a workout tomorrow.

The other piece of information was reported late this afternoon, by Rich Cimini , among others.  Per his report, running back Mike Goodson is slated to come in for a workout tomorrow as well.

Goodson has spend his career as a backup to Darren McFadden, but with McFadden hurt fairly often, Goodson has gotten his chances and performed well.  In 2010, for example, Mike started 3 times in place of Darren McFadden, and ran for over 100 yards in two of those games.

Although he posted zero starts in 2012, he performed well off the bench, rushing for over 6 yards per carry.  Goodson has gotten his chance to play, and done well in those opportunities.

This should be interesting.
