Running back Joe McKnight delivered an overhand right to cornerback D’Anton Lynn to start a huge fight, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Lynn is an undrafted rookie who is the son of McKnight’s position coach, Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn.
Mehta describes fight that broke out as “insane,” with 20 players involved and Jets coach Rex Ryan having to jump in to stop it. Here’s some video of the end of the skirmish.
Ryan has guaranteed that his team will be closer this year than it was last year. This probably isn’t what he had in mind.
