Joe McKnight considers himself a legitimate contender for the Jets' starting running back job, and vows to be "a lot better" in 2013.
"I made that promise to myself," McKnight said. "If not, I'm going to die trying. I'm nowhere near close to where I want to go." McKnight also claims to have never had a single conversation with former OC Tony Sparano, but that he "loves" new OC Marty Mornhinweg. McKnight's fire is admirable, but he should remain a gadget player/special teamer this season.
