 FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - A miffed Joe McKnight smacked down speculation that he could be the odd man out in the New York Jets' crowded backfield, saying they'd have to ``kill me'' to take his spot.
The running back, entering his fourth season, says Thursday that he doesn't care who the Jets bring in at the position and he's going to ``prove'' he belongs. New York, which allowed Shonn Greene to leave as a free agent, has McKnight, Chris Ivory, Mike Goodson, Bilal Powell and John Griffin as running backs on the roster.
McKnight insists he's not angry, but ``tired of people writing or running their mouths talking about I'm not going to be here.''
McKnight, who has had problems staying healthy, was nearly a Pro Bowl pick in 2011 as a kick returner.
