The New York Jets have signed free-agent running back Mike Goodson to a three-year, $6.9 million deal, according to reports.
The Carolina Panthers drafted Woodson out of Texas A&M in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He was traded to the Oakland Raiders in March of 2012.
He averaged 6.3 yards in 35 carries including a long run of 43 yards, and also had 16 receptions for 195 yards including a 64-yard touchdown in 2012 with the Raiders.
The Jets previously lost running back Shonn Greene to the Tennessee Titans in free agency.
And the Jets are on the free-agent scoreboard with RB Mike Goodson.—
