New York Jets running back Joe McKnight made it known on Wednesday that he’s not happy about moving to the defensive side of the ball and playing cornerback.
“I was drafted as a running back,” McKnight said. “The way I took it as I wasn’t good enough to play running back; that’s what I took it as. I don’t know if that’s the case or not.”
McKnight explained how Rex told him about the move.
“Rex walked in the room and said I got traded, I got traded to the defense,” McKnight said.
It looks like Rex is trying to pull a Bill Belichick and move an offensive guy to defense. A good example of this is Julian Edelman who played some corner for the Patriots last season.
