McKnight tweets that he’s headed to Green Bay

Former Jets running back Joe McKnight is about to get a fresh start, in a totally different environment.

McKnight just tweeted that he was “headed to Green Bay tomorrow,” which leads one to believe he’s signing with the Packers.

There’s a reasonable fit there, since the Packers are short in the backfield after DuJuan Harris’ injury, but have a bigger need for someone with his return skills.

If he’s well, he can help them there, and certainly would be joining a more stable organization.

UPDATE 5:38 p.m. ET:  Per multiple reports, McKnight will be getting only a workout from the Packers.  For now.

    He wont make a difference. He is no better than anyone on the roster at RB.
    ——————————-
    He is signed to be mainly a returner which is something they need.

    Maybe he’s just going to Green Bay because he wants to spend the weekend getting drunk and meeting ugly women. No better place for that.

    Or he could go to MN where even the best RB in the world won’t ever win a ring, on a team that is continually surrounded by ineptitude.

    Dude, your team is a fraud…they’re wearing pink unies….they play in a balloon like dust fairies….and they have an empty hardware case. Ripping on Green Bay like Minneapolis is some kind of North Miami is classic. You see, the rest of the cities with teams in the NFL can laugh at MN and GB…but MN is like the bum left for dead with no change in his pocket, while GB gt a job and worked his way from the mailroom to the Board room.

    Oh…and Spielman is a hack, not a magician.

    I’m pretty sure almost any player in the league would pick the small market Pack over the toothless woods-women of MN…unless they weren’t wanted in Green Bay. (hint,hint)

  3. not much of a RB but a hell of a kick returner. That could be enough to get him back onto a roster in the league.
