    I hope we now move McKnight back to CB. Just because that would be hilarious.

    He was best known as the short yardage specialist for Sparano in Miami...converted at a really high rate.

    That being said, I have no idea what this is supposed to accomplish unless we are cutting Conner or if Conner or another RB is hurt.

    Hilliard has been primarily a special teamer throughout his career. He's unlikely to be higher than fourth or fifth on the depth chart at running back.

    super bowl.

    Hilliard was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the sixth round (204th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft.[6] On May 19, he signed a four-year contract with the Dolphins.[7] Viewed as a fullback/tailback hybrid,[8] Hilliard stated he had no preference on where he played.[5]

    In the 2008 preseason, Hilliard finished third on the team with 68 rushing yards on a 2.8-yard average.[9] He also caught three passes for 24 yards.[9] On August 30, the team waived Hilliard during final cuts.[10] He was re-signed to the practice squad the following day.[11]

    After spending the entire 2008 season on the practice squad, Hilliard was re-signed on January 5, 2009. In week 11 of the 2009 season Hillard was given the backup running back role behind Ricky Williams due to the foot injury to Ronnie Brown.

    Minnesota Vikings

    Hilliard signed with the Minnesota Vikings on March 18, 2012. On August 31, 2012 as the Vikings reduced their roster down to league maximum of 53 players, he was released.[12]

    New England Patriots

    On September 4th, 2012, Hilliard signed with the New England Patriots. He was released on September 19, 2012. During his short tenure with the Patriots, Hilliard played in two games recording one rush attempt for two yards.

    BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter and All-Conference selection who totaled 242/1132/16 last season. Missed the 2006 campaign with a torn Achilles.
    Posted career-high numbers of 229/1322/12 as a junior in 2005.

    POSITIVES: Strong interior ball-carrier who may be tried at fullback. Patient, waits for blocks to develop, and finds running lanes. Keeps his feet moving on contact, breaks several tackles during a single carry, and tough to bring down. Effectively picks up blocking assignments and will stop defenders on the blitz.

    NEGATIVES: Possesses marginal speed and quickness. Loses momentum when he changes direction and more of a straight-line runner.

    ANALYSIS: Hilliard is a nice-sized ball-carrier who competes hard and does the little things well. Strong at the point, he lacks the speed and creativity to be a feature runner, yet he offers possibilities as a short-yardage specialist and could develop into a lead blocker.

    PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent

    This may be he most important thing - someone who is reliable in blitz pickup and doesn't leave gaping holes for defenders to charge through. Perhaps the Jets need some high effort reliable hungry players who give honest effort rather than the overpaid fat cats on the roster
