Of course one is innocent until proven guilty in the United States’ legal system. There comes a time, however, when organizations must make the best decisions regarding employees. New York Jets running back Mike Goodson likely faces great uncertainty about his future next season. Only two games this year saw Goodson carry seven times. While speed was on display circumstances prevented this running back from making too much of an impact.

An earlier weapons charge plagued him by causing a four-game suspension before the season’s first snap. Goodson returned and ran some wildcat, and standard handoffs also produced some solid yardage. He was the wildcard back that backed up Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory, and together a three-headed monster would have wreaked havoc on opposing defenses. Right after his debut Goodson went down winding up on season-ending IR. Now that indictment has taken place his arraignment is the next step. Gang Green’s locker room now seems intent on making positive changes, and individuals with legal issues simply do not fit such an image. Now there becomes a question as to whether anyone will sign someone facing these problems because speed can only get you so far in an uphill battle

As far as on the field there really hasn’t been much drop off in the running game. Powell and Ivory form a tremendous duo with contrasting styles. Alex Green is capable of being No. 3 so Goodson’s time with New York is over before it really was able to get started.

Brandon Marshall Tells Rich Eisen He Hasn't Spoken To Jay Cutler

During a recent appearance on ' The Rich Eisen Show', former Chicago Bears and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was asked about his relationship with his old quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall, who has zero chill, replied that he had not spoken to Cutler in "two years." Naturally, Eisen was shocked and mentioned that they were teammates just a season ago. Marshall essentially confirmed that they were not talking off the field during his last year in Chicago, but ultimately wished Cutler well.
