    New York Jets running back Mike Goodson is in plea talks for gun and marijuana charges stemming from a May 17 incident that saw him and an associate arrested.

    Plea offers have not been extended to either Goodson -- who signed with the Jets this offseason -- or Garant Evans, according to a report from USA Today, but a Morris County assistant prosecutor said talks are underway in that regard following Wednesday's early disposition conference.

    The charges filed against the men will be presented to a grand jury for possible indictment if a plea deal can't get worked out and would likely lead to a trial. It would seem that a plea agreement is more likely, however.

    The biggest hurdle currently seems to be the gun charge as a search of the vehicle during the arrest turned up a loaded 45-caliber Taurus Millenium, according to an affidavit, that neither man initially admitted owning.
