    Joe McKnight arrested for unpaid fees

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...artner=ya5nbcs

    For the second time this year a New York Jets running back has been arrested.

    According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Joe McKnight was pulled over after passing a police officer at a high rate of speed and changing lanes without signaling during a Jets off-day on July 30.

    When the officer ran the license plate, he discovered a pair of fines that had gone unpaid by McKnight. The first was for $200 for failing to produce an insurance card in Summit and the second was $120 for failing to observe a traffic signal in Springfield. He was subsequently arrested and paid the outstanding charges of $320 and was released with a summons for an unsafe lane change and uninsured motor vehicle.

    McKnight joins Mike Goodson as Jets running backs to be handcuffed this year. Goodson was arrested in May on marijuana and handgun charges.

    McKnight did not practice for the Jets Monday after apparently suffering a concussion.

    This loser will never play another regular season down for the Jets and most likely no other team either. He's a knucklehead to the bitter end. This is a pattern of immaturity. He refuses to grow up and act like an adult. I think we've all seen this chapter acted out by others. They all have similar endings with some getting more chances and others not. I think this guy's squandering this chance with a little bad luck (concussion) involved.

    Some of you are overreacting a bit. I agree he is a immature still and irresponsible but you don't need to cut him for unpaid fees. He didn't commit a crime or anything. He's probably just really bad with paper work. I can relate. Plus with Ivory not practicing yet and Goodson m.i.a. we kind of need him.

    Joe Mcknight update, Rex addressed the media:

    Updating an earlier post about Joe McKnight being arrested, Rex Ryan spoke to the media about this situation today.

    On Joe McKnight’s arrest for traffic violations…
    Number one, we’re aware of it. I don’t know what else to add to it, but we are aware of it.

    On whether McKnight has a concussion…
    I know he had some head injury that we’re making sure we’re observant (of) and things like that. I don’t know for a fact that he has a concussion or not, but I know he had some kind of head injury. You’re not going to put somebody out there if there are any questions whatsoever about it. But do I know specifically he had a concussion? No, I do not know that.

    On whether Joe McKnight must have had a concussion test…
    Well, I think he’s still getting tests on it or something.

    On whether he feels McKnight has an issue in camp every year…
    I think with Joe (McKnight), it’s not that he’s not in shape, because Joe McKnight’s in shape, he’s in phenomenal shape. But I’m saying he’s in shape, but there are some guys who have anxiety (in my opinion) in some situations. And I think that prevents more than anything because the very next day he runs it. He’s always done it, and just some guys are like that. But it’s not an indication he’s not in shape because Joe is in shape. But as soon as you say it, it’s just like when you get guys taking the ACT or SAT, some guys freeze up. At least that was my excuse (joking).

    On whether McKnight has an anxiety issue…
    He has a little bit of that, a little angst in him when it comes to (a) conditioning (test). He’s in great shape, but it seems for some reason, something like this happens. (McKnight does not have any clinically diagnosed anxiety issue)

    On when McKnight will be ready to play…
    I wish you could ask (Head Athletic Trainer John) Mellody that because I don’t know the exact deal. I just know when they tell me that Joe can play and he’s healthy to play, that I’ll play him. But I’ll just lean on the trainers.

    On if he knows whether or not McKnight had a concussion test…
    We’ll check. I just lean on Mellody and I get the list each time and I saw Joe out there. I talked to him yesterday, he was in the walk-through, he was in different things


    All I have to say is this stinks. Ivory hasn't been able to practice much, Goodson still hasn't showed up but at least Powell is making the most his opportunity. He showed some flashes last season.

    that sucks. what a way to get in the headlines.

    had this happen to me before after paying the ticket at the clerk and not bringing the form to the DMV. some BS. the cop didn't give me a ticket but he took my license and said good luck explaining this to the next cop if you get pulled over on your way home.

    pretty decent chance the cop doesn't arrest him if hes not a football player.

    I don't think this is a big deal in itself.

    But I have read a lot about him (the headaches, the problems learning plays, the strange statements sometimes that just make you wonder if the lad maybe has some problems he needs some help or support with emotionally or mentally.
