Jets RB Zonovan Knight, nicknamed “Bam” from his college days for his tackle-breaking ability, has been a late-season revelation for New York. The undrafted free agent caught some eyes during the preseason but has been on the practice squad or inactive up until two weeks ago. His work behind the scenes finally prompted the coaches to play him and he’s making the most of his opportunity with 221 total yards the past two games. 

“It’s been a blessing to even put on the uniform,” Knight said via the Athletic’s Zack Rosenblatt. “I have to say thanks to the coaches for giving me the opportunity. They called me as an undrafted free agent and brought me into the building. I knew I just had to come in and work. I knew there was a chance maybe I wouldn’t play, maybe I would. So it’s just been about staying locked in this whole season, making sure I understand the playbook. It was good to stay honed into that. And then, I finally got an opportunity.”
