I believe John Idzik needs to flex his muscles and make a bold statement by releasing the player. Yes, players in the NFL and the Jets have had charges similar to this, but a culture change must me made for this Jets team.
Idzik has already parted ways with two players earlier this year for drug charges but we are dealing with a bigger “fish” in Goodson.
