A player’s performance on the first morning of his first NFL minicamp probably isn’t a very good predictor of what kind of career he’s going to have. Which is good news for Jets rookie running back Joe McKnight.
According to tweets from various reporters on the scene, McKnight’s morning included missing a pair of catchable balls, dropping a pass while falling awkwardly and needing trainers to work on both calves because of cramps.
And, to top it all off, McKnight threw up on the field.
As we noted in today’s one-liners, McKnight has been encouraged to follow veteran running backs LaDainian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene around “until they shoo you away.” By puking on the field, McKnight may have found a way to make Tomlinson and Greene shoo him away quickly.
