A two-sport star at Liberty University, James McKnight applied his skills from the gridiron as well as from the track during his 11-year NFL career. McKnight worked his way up the ladder, first signing as an undrafted free agent, and then serving on the practice squad before ultimately being promoted to the Seahawks active roster. After five seasons in Seattle and two in Dallas, McKnight chose to return to his native Florida by signing with the Miami Dolphins in 2001, where he would remain for three seasons.
In The Tank, James discussed playing football at Apopka High School where he was teammates with and had a unique relationship with future Pro Football Hall of Famer, Warren Sapp (4:46), explains how Chan Gailey was a major factor in his signing with the Dolphins in ’01 (24:25), fondly recalls his 80-yard TD reception against Washington on a Sunday night in 2003 (39:36), and candidly shares his frustrations with then Head Coach Dave Wannstedt (43:25).
