06:57 AM ET 05.20 | So far, the Jets' new leadership's track record isn't all that good out of the free agent gate. [John Idzik] apparently has swung and missed on his first two free-agent signings -- QB David Garrard (retired) and RB Mike Goodson (arrested). Fortunately for the Jets, they weren't huge financial commitments, but that doesn't mean Idzik gets a pass. ... The Jets took a chance [on Goodson], betting on his upside with a three-year, $6.9 million contract. Now his future with the team is a major question mark after Friday's arrest on drug and weapon charges. An opposing scout, familiar with Goodson's background, said of the Jets: "Do these guys do background checks?"

I can't wait to see who Idzik hires once he gives Rex the boot.

I hope Josh Cribbs has a monster season...

Nobody ever said anything when the Bengals we're doing their scouting on "America's Most Wanted"

Ummm.... Yes people did... Even Marvin Lewis wanted out of town.

Drug and Weapon charges makes it sound like he was smuggling coke and automatics across the border. How 'bout we call it what it was. A couple doobies and a travel piece.

They didn't do a background check on Rex, why should they run checks on their players?

Buttfumble-ground checks.

In New Jersey, that equals prison time.

That's just bull****. My 77 year old mother travels with a 357 and a purse full of prescription drugs. I'm pretty sure there are hollow points in the gun and Valium in the bottle. The gun isn't registered either. If you were to check purses at her church coffee clutch I'll bet 2 out of three are packing.

A return engagement? Nothing would surprise me from the J-E-T-S.

Yes, they do! And, if they haven't been arrested and charged with something, they can't play for the Jests.

Texas is a very different place from... like... anywhere else. If my grandmother got busted here in Washington state with an unregistered gun with hollow points she'd be in the KingCo Jail in no time flat.

I hear you... Same way in Mississippi... But once you get to the Virginia state line, it's pretty much all down hill from there.

My 77 year old mother makes $357 a day working just a few hours on her laptop.

Let's wait until the facts are in on Goodson.

Right. Then we'll crucify him.

Who on here needs facts ?

Has your mother considered playing quarterbck for the Jets? Sounds like she would fit right in.
