Quote:
The New York Jets ended their part in the Mike Goodson-saga.

The team announced Wednesday it released the running back with the designation "left squad."

The release comes as no surprise. General manager John Idzik said the situation was "building," and cited Goodson skipping mandatory minicamp as the final straw.

"I won't get into personal conversations that we had with others," Idzik said, "but again, very suffice to say we gave Mike, I think, ample opportunity."

Goodson, 27, spent one tumultuous season in New York.

Last May -- two months after signing a three-year, $6.9 million deal -- the running back was arrested on marijuana and weapons charges. He skipped training camp. Then he was suspended for four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. After returning, Goodson lasted less than two games and just seven carries before he tore his ACL and MCL in Week 6; he was put on injured reserve. He then went AWOL this offseason leading to his ultimate release.

Even though he's a nobody it's still great to see someone stop getting chances.

Yer,unfortunately though it is only because he is a nobody that they stopped giving him the chances.

I thought he could be decent after his stint in Carolina(i think) but he never got better than average

Not much of a surprise. Goodson could have been a solid starter for a team but seems to manage to mess up every opportunity that is given to him, which is why Rivera just gave up on him in '11.

Unfortunate things went this way. Goodson had very legit talent to be good in the NFL. Could have challenged Deangelo if he had his head on right.

And also if he had quit fumbling the ball.

Wow. Didn't see that coming.

Its the end of an era in NY. Hope the fans appreciated what they had. I'm curious to see how the staff means to make up for the loss of production.

Goodson has a lot of talent, it's a shame that he comes with so much baggage. His NFL career is probably over.

Was really looking forward to him capturing the 3rd down role last year, it's too bad he made a really big mistake because it will probably end up costing him his career as an NFL player.

Sounds like he needs a lot of help outside of football and I hope he gets it.

Talented enough to be the NFL yet off the field decisions are affecting him.

Yeah, hopefully he'll get his life in order with the Jets.
