One Jet At A Time:
The New York Post spoke with Jets running back Joe McKnight, who's on a mission to dig himself out of the hole he's in, on the depth chart.
“Words can’t even describe how badly I want to be that guy,’’ McKnight told The Post during a break in offseason workouts last week at the team’s Florham Park, N.J., training facility. “I’ve got an edge — a fire to me ... so I can show everybody that I can play. When I’m out there practicing it’s like I’m [ticked] off. I’ve got to play the game [ticked] off. That gives me the edge and keeps me on top of my game.’’
Joe McKnight seems to be an undercover fan favorite, as he is very shifty, and has the ability to return kicks for big yards. He'll have an uphill battle come training camp, though, possibly to even stay on the roster. The Jets acquired RB Mike Goodson in FA from Oakland, and RB Chris Ivory via trade with the Saints, this offseason. Also on the roster are last year's breakout, Bilal Powell, and John Griffin.
