McKnight is talented, but can’t stay healthy and isn’t reliable.
The full list of the team’s initial cuts includes: WR Joe Collins, S Donnie Fletcher, G Patrick Ford, T Trey Gilleo, S Bret Lockett, McKnight, Peterman, LB Sean Progar-Jackson, Quigley, WR Marcus Rucker, LS Patrick Scales, RB Chad Spann, WR K.J. Stroud and WR Rahsaan Vaughn.
