This was not the beginning to a Jets’ career that Mike Goodson orJohn Idzik had hoped for.

Per a report earlier from ESPN, new Jets’ running back Mike GoodsonWas arrested earlier this morning on drugs and weapons charges.

As noted in today’s report, Goodson was found in the left center lane in an SUV with a driver, Goodson was the passenger. 911 was called because the person that discovered Goodson didn’t like the condition he appeared in. He was taken to the hospital and released when he was well enough.

Trouble is, he was found with marijuana and a handgun when he was taken to the hospital, so upon his release he was taken to Morris County Correctional Facility in lieu of bail.

What is John Idzik to do? Does he hang onto Goodson, or does he release him? He was obviously a big part of the plans for the running game. But there would be history to fall back on, should John decide to make a move.

The Jets did release Claude Davis and Cliff Harris after they faced their own drug charges. They previously had future contracts with the Jets.

So what should John do? Should Goodson stay or go? Sound off below as always.
