This is a big year for Joe Mcknight as he has to become the change of pace back and the receiving threat L Tomlinson was .
When it comes to catching the football I figure he'd be OK. But if the Jets CS wants to use him carrying the football between the tackles, he'll be done in short order.
He's already shown that he's brittle. He also lacks a work ethic and has shown that he's in it only to get paid.
IMO, he's JAG. We could easily sign someone else who would be very happy to be in NY and work his a$$ off. Westoff, being the genius that he is, would make the guy into a star.
