Former Jets Running Back Killed

Former New York Jets running back and dynamic kickoff returner Joe McKnight (28) was shot and kill in New Orleans after what seems to be an apparent road-rage incident.

McKnight was known as a legendary high-school running back in New Orleans from there he went to on to play at USC but he never really reached his full potential.  McKnight was also known in the league for his happy-go-lucky attitude and his impressive kickoff returning skills.

Former teammates and other players in the NFL have shown their sympathy:
