Former RB McKnight laid to rest
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.
