Jets running back Joe McKnight was arrested in New Jersey on July 30 for outstanding traffic warrants. McKnight was stopped by police for speeding and changing lanes without signaling. During the stop, officers discovered McKnight had a warrant for not paying a $200 fine failing to produce an insurance card. He had another warrant for not paying a $120 fine for failing to observe a traffic signal.
McKnight was booked and later released after paying his outstanding charges of $320. He was given a summons for an unsafe lane change and an uninsured vehicle.
July 30 was an off day at Jets training camp.
Very little has gone right for McKnight since coming to the NFL three years ago. His conditioning always seems to be a work in progress, and his production has been insignificant. He is trying to become the team's third-down back, but between this and the apparent concussion that has kept him from practicing recently, the odds are against McKnight carving out a meaningful role. The only silver lining for him is that the rest of the Jets' backfield is a hot mess right now.
