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.

    Bit of an odd signing?

    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.

    He is signed to be mainly a returner which is something they need.

    Rather than worry about our RBs maybe you should go about your lives! – Ted Thompson

    Franklin to be cut. Wasted 4th rounder.

    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)

    Two guys fighting over which city has the worse women, Minneapolis or Green Bay. Classic!

    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.

    @ Canned Heat

    You mad bro? Seem’s like somebody struck a nerve.

    Maybe he’s just going there on vacation?

    No, that doesn’t make any sense either.

    McKnight has a history of migraines. Maybe we can sign him and trade him to Seattle…

    Who cares. This guy could never stay on the field. Clearly he has a personality disorder.

  15. dino2997 says: Aug 31, 2013 12:54 AM

    Is he going to play defense?
