MORRISTOWN, N.J. -- A New Jersey grand jury indicted New York Jets running back Michael Goodson and another man on weapons charges Thursday, stemming from a traffic stop last spring.

Goodson and Roselle resident Garant Evans were discovered by police in Denville, in Morris County in northwestern New Jersey, early on the morning of May 17 in a car stopped in the middle of Interstate 80.

Police said at the time they recovered a loaded .45-calibre handgun and one hollow point bullet.

Both men face a count each of unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of prohibited weapons and devices. Evans also faces another weapons count.

Goodson's attorney, Anthony Fusco Jr., said Thursday his client would be exonerated and that prosecutors "have no evidence the gun was in his possession."

Goodson played three seasons for Carolina and one for Oakland before the Jets signed him to a three-year, $6.9 million deal, which included a $1 million signing bonus, in March. He sat out four games this season for violating the NFL's drug policy and sustained a season-ending knee injury last month against Pittsburgh in his second game back.
