Q-and-A with Rex Ryan on Mike Goodson Dan Leberfeld

Q)Why was Mike Goodson not in attendance today?

Rex Ryan: That’s a good question. I don’t know. But, you’re right Mike’s not here. I haven’t talked to him. But, certainly I recognize the fact he’s not here.

Q)Will Goodson be fined for not being in attendance today?

Ryan: You’re exactly right. By rule, anytime a player misses anything mandatory you’re subject to a fine and all that kind of stuff. But, instead of talking about him specifically, I’d rather talk about the guys that are here and just understand that I recognize the fact that he’s not here and that situation will be dealt with. If we have any updates for you, we’ll make sure you get them.

Q)Has anyone in the organization spoken with Goodson?

Ryan: Not that I’m aware of.

Q)Is it unusual that Goodson is not at mandatory minicamp?

Ryan: I would think so. I don’t think we’ve ever had a guy miss a mandatory something. I think (Darrelle) Revis might have even been here, or whoever (joking).

Q)Will the team will move on from Goodson?

Ryan: Well again, let’s just see what happens and like I said, I basically said what I’m going to say about it.

Q)Why Goodson remains on the team…

Ryan: Again, let’s talk about the guys that are here. We’ve got everybody else here except him. I feel great about the guys that are here.
