Road To Redemption: The Lost And Found

Every year NFL teams suffer major losses due to injuries. Last season, the New York Jets lost two key role players in Antwan Barnes and Mike Goodson to season ending knee injuries. Ironically, both were the Jets’ most notable free agent acquisitions just a few months before going down.

With the 2014 free agency period in full swing and the draft on the horizon, many have forgotten both of these players plan on returning to gang green for the 2014-2015 season. Continue reading “Road To Redemption: The Lost And Found”

New York Jets RB Mike Goodson – A Quick Refresher

A quick refresher on New York Jets RB Mike Goodson, who will rejoin the team this week

The New York Jets will be boosted this week by the return of running back and kick returner Mike Goodson. After being signed in the off-season to a three year contract, Goodson was suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL’s policy and program for substances of abuse.

Despite Bilal Powell’s terrific start (66 carries, 292 yards, 11 receptions, 108 yards), the Jets could badly use Goodson’s speed and explosiveness on both offense and special teams. They have been one of the worst return teams in football and are thin at running back with Chris Ivory nursing a hamstring injury. Powell is a very effective inside runner but Goodson should be able to bring some punch on outside runs and in the screen game.

Here is a quick refresher on his game and what he could bring to the table.

New York Jets – Exploring Potential Of Ivory/Goodson Backfield

Exploring the potential of Chris Ivory and Mike Goodson in the New York Jets backfield

The New York Jets haven’t had a flashy off-season but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been productive. There has been measured progress at a variety of positions but the most notable infusion of talent has occurred at running back. Plodding Shonn Greene was wisely allowed to leave in free agency and in his place the Jets added a duo of backs with immensely high potential, Chris Ivory and Mike Goodson. We’ve sung the praises of both here at TOJ but we wanted to dig a little deeper into the reasons for our excitement, so we sought out Pro Football Focus and a handful of writers who previously covered Ivory and Goodson. Let’s take a closer look…

Jets Reportedly Interested In Chris Ivory

The New York Jets are reportedly interested in trading for New Orleans Saints Restricted Free Agent Running Back, Chris Ivory. The Jets hosted Ivory for a visit on Friday, but are unlikely to sign him to an offer sheet due to the second round tender New Orleans placed on him earlier this offseason. New York would prefer to exchange a later round draft pick for Ivory, rather than surrendering the 39th overall pick, according to multiple reports.
