“Yeah, I was surprised, but it was a decision to make the team better,” McKnight admitted of his switch to the defensive side. “I’m all for it.”
One player who was impressed with McKnight’s cover skills this week was none other than Tebow himself.
“Joe’s very talented and he is someone that is a playmaker, I think he showed that in practice today, I think he had three interceptions,” declared Tebow. “That’s good for him, he’s playing in a position I think he feels comfortable at. I think he’ll be able to adjust and have a chance to be a big time corner.”
