Jets re-signed WR Scotty McKnight.

The 25-year-old was a pal of Mark Sanchez as the Jets' quarterback was growing up. A 2011 seventh-rounder, McKnight will struggle to make the team.

Jets placed WR Scotty McKnight (torn ACL) on the practice squad injured reserve.

The seventh-rounder was known more for being Mark Sanchez's buddy than a legitimate prospect. It's surprising that he remained on the practice squad for two months. The ACL tear will likely kill whatever scant chances he would have to make the roster next summer.

Jets waived WR Scotty McKnight.

It was well known that the Jets drafted McKnight only because he's Mark Sanchez's best buddy. The 227th overall pick, caught one pass in the preseason -- good for a 14-yard score in the finale. He might get a practice squad look.

Jets selected Colorado WR Scotty McKnight with the No. 227 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

McKnight is Mark Sanchez's boy from high school; the Jets' quarterback threw passes in McKnight's Pro Day pass-catching drills. A slot receiver prospect, McKnight did catch 219 passes in his career and ran 4.49, 4.58 before the draft. We suppose Sanchez was "banging the table" for the Jets to draft his pal.
