Jets Release RB Mike Goodson

Posted: Updated:

The Jets have released running back Mike Goodson.

Goodson, one of the first signings by John Idzik and his front office after he arrived as the Jets general manager a year ago, hadn't been participating in our voluntary offseason program since it began in late April. When he didn't report in for the mandatory full-squad training camp on Monday night  or for Tuesday's first day of camp, the team decided to part ways with the sixth-year back.

"We are releasing Mike today with the designation of left squad," Idzik said in a news conference this morning. "Obviously it's disappointing. Like we do with all our players, we gave mike, we feel in good conscience, every opportunity here with the Jets, and unfortunately it didn't work out. So we made the move ultimately that we feel is best for the team."

"I think with all our players, we provide them an opportunity," head coach Rex Ryan said, echoing his GM. "It's unfortunate that it never worked out. We wish him the best moving forward."

Ryan added that he attempted to reach out to Goodson recently and was not successful.

"No question it concerns me," he said. "The last time I talked to him, he was here was probably the last day he was here in the offseason when he was rehabbing an injury. The last time I talked to him was probably two, three months ago."
