Goodson, 26, still has two years remaining on his three-year, $6.9 million contract with base salaries of $1 million and $1.5 million coming his way during this time.
However, Goodson has dealt with numerous off-the-field issues since the Jets signed him as a free agent. They have also brought in Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson to be their top-two running backs, so it’s not as though they can offer him even a modest role if Richardson ends up beating him out for the No. 3 running back job.
Last year, Goodson received a four-game suspension to begin the season and later suffered a torn ACL and MCL, which limited him to appearing in just two games.
