Jets land RB Goodson
Free agent running back Mike Goodson signed a three-year, $6.9 million contract with the New York Jets on Friday.
Goodson was on the radar of the Cincinnati Bengals after one year as a backup to Darren McFadden and Marcel Reece with the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders acquired Goodson from the Carolina Panthers prior to the 2012 season in a deal that sent offensive lineman Bruce Campbell out of Oakland.
Goodson averaged 6.3 yards on 35 carries and had 16 receptions in 2012.
The Jets allowed free agent Shonn Greene to leave for the Tennessee Titans via free agency on Wednesday. Goodson isn't considered a featured back but might be auditioned for an expanded role with Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight also in the mix.
