Goodson, a Klein Collins High School graduate, came to Texas A&M in 2006 and earned an All-Big 12 honorable mention his freshman season after leading the team in rushing. He started six of 13 games in 2007, and his production declined in 2008. He left the team after that season, and was drafted into the NFL in 2009.

NEWARK, N.J. -- New York Jets running back Mike Goodson is facing drug and weapons charges after a New Jersey traffic stop.

The Jets say they are aware of the arrest and are gathering information.

State police say Goodson was a passenger in a vehicle driven by 31-year-old Garant Evans of Roselle. Police found them stopped on Interstate 80 in Denville at about 3:15 a.m. Friday.

Sgt. Adam Grossman says both men were charged with marijuana possession, drug paraphernalia possession and weapons offenses stemming from a handgun found in the vehicle.

Evans is charged with DWI and another weapons offense.

Both men are held pending transfer to the Morris County jail.

Goodson played three seasons for Carolina and one for Oakland before the Jets signed him to a three-year deal this offseason.
