New York Jets Host First Ever Jets Movie Night

Training camp has not even started yet, but it felt like MetLife Stadium was already hosting a New York Jets game.  For the first time ever, the Jets hosted Jets Movie Night at the stadium.  The film being shown was The Lego Movie and the turnout was tremendous.

The actual movie itself began at 7:30pm, but that was not the only exciting thing about this fun-filled night.  Throughout the entire event, which began about 90 minutes earlier, there were several fun activities going on that gave a gameday-like feeling.  For example, Jets Fest inflatable obstacle courses that are seen at Generation Jets events and Family Night at training camp were present.  Even while the movie was playing, young fans were still having fun and running through the courses.

Fans received a tour of the Jets locker room and got to experience what it is like to walk onto the field on gameday.  It is no surprise that all the cameras came out and poses with logos and writings such as "Play Like A Jet" were seen everywhere.  Also, a few members of the New York Jets Flight Crew were at the 50-yard line taking photos with fans of all ages, which helped to further enhance the vibe of an actual game taking place.  In addition, there was a face painting station for everyone to show their green and white pride.

New York Jets Release Mike Goodson; All 2014 Draftees Now Signed

Last offseason one of the players that was signed by General Manager John Idzik was running back/kick returned Mike Goodson in the hopes that he would add speed to both areas. He was caught with a gun and drugs during a traffic stop and eventually suspended four games by the NFL. Now he is no longer a member of the New York Jets.

During this offseason the New York Jets have not seen or heard much from running back Mike Goodson. He was absent from the organized team activities (OTA's) and then decided to skip the mandatory mini camp that opened on Tuesday. As of Wednesday he was released by the team, ending a one year saga with Gang Green. Goodson only played in two games, week five versus the Falcons and week six versus the Steelers. In the Pittsburgh game he hurt his ACL and MCL and was placed on season ending injured reserve. The Jets have already added another former Oakland Raider return man, wide receiver Jacoby Ford, to replace Goodson, which ultimately made him expendable.
