What the heck is Joe McKnight getting into? He first came into camp and failed his conditioning tests because he didn’t have enough fat on him. He kept getting dehydrated and needed to drink a ton of water. Now there is this story of him getting arrested for not paying some old traffic tickets?!

Back in July, Joe sped past a cop and changed lanes without using his signal. The cop pulled him over and discovered an outstanding warrant for failing to show an insurance card and another warrant for not paying for a ticket for failing to observe a traffic signal.

I swear Joe has the strangest things happening to him this offseason. He needs to get his crap together. Pay your dang traffic tickets and eat a hamburger or something. That can’t be that difficult.

McKnight could have had an opportunity to be the lead back in New York, but we keep getting these random stories like this and he isn’t doing so well in training camp. Pull it together Joe.
