“Whoever they bring in, I don’t care,” McKnight said on Thursday in the locker room. “You understand that? I don’t care who they bring in. They’ll have to kill me to take my spot.”

Shortly after Gang Green released nose tackle Sione Po’uha, free-agent defensive tackle Mike DeVito signed a three-year deal with the Chiefs, according to multiple reports.

There’s no reason to print playoff tickets or plan a parade down One Jets Drive, but Gang Green has somehow found a way to hang in there. At least for the moment.
It may be a waste of money to ask Mark Sanchez to manage games. But if he wants to take the Jets to the postseason, he can’t be asked to make plays.
