Big Season Coming Up for RB Joe McKnight

Joe McKnight, the 2010 fourth-round pick, found a niche last year as a kickoff returner. He hopes to take the next step to be a consistent contributor on offense, too, infamously claiming to bulk up on a McDonald’s diet according to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger.

McKnight realizes that this could be a “make or break year” for him.

“Yeah, it’s a big year. If it I don’t get it this year, it will probably be it for me,” McKnight said. “That’s how I think, I’m not saying (anything). Because it’s, what, three years? After the first year, you should really have it down pat. I just have to wait and find out, see how it pans out.

“I think if I just keep getting better from last year and convert it over on special teams and offense. Just keep trying to make plays and keep being productive for the offense and for special teams. I don’t want to take a step back and go back to year one, where I am just sitting on the sideline for eight games and just sitting there wasting space on the team.”
