The Denver Post - - SPORTS OFF & RUNNING -

B new or­leans» Five for­mer Jets team­mates were pall­bear­ers at the fu­neral for Joe McKnight, who was shot and killed Dec. 1 dur­ing a road-rage in­ci­dent in sub­ur­ban New Or­leans.

“Any­time he touched the ball he could take it the dis­tance and that was ex­cit­ing about Joe,” said Mark Sanchez, who played with McKnight at USC and for the Jets. “But we all re­mem­ber him jok­ing around all the time, and the warm heart he had.” Ear­lier class­mates were there, too. Ron­ald Gasser, 54, was ar­rested on a man­slaugh­ter charge in McKnight’s death.
