The Jets are still in “fact-finding mode” as it relates to running back Mike Goodson, who was arrested early Friday morning on drugs and weapons charges.

Owner Woody Johnson told NFL Network from the owners meetings in Boston Monday afternoon that general manager John Idzik and coach Rex Ryan will interview Goodson about his arrest.

Goodson, 25, and 31-year-old Garant Evans, of Roselle, N.J., were arrested shortly after 3 a.m. Friday on Interstate 80 in New Jersey. Both men were charged with 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. Evans also was charged with possession of a weapon by persons prohibited because of a prior felony conviction. His bail was set at $150,000. Goodson posted his $50,000 bail on Friday.

The running back – who was signed in March to a three-year, $6-million deal – was inside the Jets' facility Monday while his teammates participated in voluntary OTA.

In response to further questions about Goodson, Johnson said the Jets are all about “truth, justice and the American way.”
