Joe McKnight: 'I ain’t going, no damn way'
BY Seth Walder
When the Jets brought in Chris Ivory and Mike Goodson with Bilal Powell already on the roster, it put Joe McKnight's roster spot in doubt. The prospect of getting cut doesn’t sit too well with McKnight, however.
“I don’t care who they bring in, they’re going (to have to) kill me to take my spot. You understand that now?” McKnight said in the locker room Thursday. “Just because they bring Goodson and Ivory in they already think I’m gone. They just bringing people in for competition, they ain’t bringing nobody in to say, ‘Joe is done.’”
McKnight unequivocally told the Daily News he’ll make the team.
“Yeah, I’m going to be on the team, I ain’t going, no damn way,” he said.
McKnight continued to insist that the acquisitions of Ivory and Goodson don’t affect his place on the team. “They have to beat me to take my spot first,” he said. “Man, look, they told me it’s a fresh slate.”
