RB Joe McKnight, the Jets' fourth-round pick, signed with the team Tuesday.

McKnight is behind Shonn Greene and LaDainian Tomlinson on the depth chart, but is expected to have a small role on offense. He could also contribute as a kick returner.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, PFW personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that the former USC player is a "fluid, agile, instinctive runner with versatility to contribute out of the backfield on swings, screens and draws as well as line up at receiver and return kicks."
