Playing for his third team in the last three years, Goodson is the frontrunner to edge out Bilal Powell for the backup job behind new Jets No. 1 tailback Christopher Ivory. Injuries tarnished Goodson’s 2012 season with the Oakland Raiders, but he still averaged 6.3 yards per rush and 12.2 yards per catch in limited action. At 6-foot, 212 pounds, Goodson has blazing 4.46 speed and solid receiving ability, but the career backup has struggled with ball security and durability throughout his NFL seasons. Ivory also has been injury prone because of his violent running style, so it will not be a surprise if Goodson makes a spot-start or two. Update: His job security in the Big Apple looks shaky heading into the summer months. Goodson was arrested for gun and drug charges in May, and he also is facing a paternity lawsuit. Goodson is becoming a distraction for a team that doesn’t need them.
