New York Jets owner Woody Johnson told reporters Monday that running back Mike Goodson met with team officials about his arrest Friday on drug and weapons charges.

He did not practice during the team's first day of OTAs.

"We're at a point of investigating the facts," Johnson said at the NFL Meetings in Boston. "(General manager) John Idzik met with him this morning, he'll meet with the coaches today. We'll try to get the story on what the facts are and go from there."

Goodson was arrested in Denville, N.J., as the passenger of a vehicle found stopped in the center-left lane of Route 80 at 3 a.m. Friday.

Goodson was the passenger in a car. He faces charges for possession of marijuana (under 50 grams), possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a loaded handgun and possession of hollow point ammunition according to New Jersey State Police documents obtained by The Sports Xchange.

Goodson was "determined by medics to require hospital evaluation" before being booked at Netcong State Police Barracks, where Evans had been transported earlier.

Police discovered a loaded 45-caliber handgun while searching the vehicle.

Bail for Goodson was set at $50,000.

Goodson signed a three-year, $6.9 million contract as an unrestricted free agent. He played last season with the Oakland Raiders, who acquired him from the Carolina Panthers prior to 2012.
