08:05 AM ET 08.07 | So much for happy campers. Jets running back Joe McKnight and rookie defensive back D'Anton Lynn got into a fight during yesterday's practice that escalated into a brawl involving 20 players, including quarterback Tim Tebow, that spilled over advertising signs near where fans were watching. It was the biggest fight of a feisty practice that featured a few smaller fights and lots of hard hits. It is clear the Jets are anxious to play an opponent other than themselves. They open the preseason Friday in Cincinnati. The fight began when McKnight caught a pass near the sideline. Lynn, an undrafted free agent out of Penn State, shoved McKnight out of bounds. McKnight did not like the push and fired the football at Lynn. McKnight then threw a punch and the two grabbed each other.

" It is clear the Jets are anxious to play an opponent other than themselves."

The Jets have no opponents who are more challenging than themselves.

Goofdell should look into this and slap some fines on this team. This sort of stuff is exactly the kind of thug behavior that the league doesn't need.

I am surprised that hard knocks didn't offer more money to sign the Jets up for the duration of Rex's tenure there.....what a mess!

They're going to fight among themselves weather it's in camp or during a game. The New York Divas.

One big happy family.

Putting the fun back into dysfunctional.

Do these guys know how to party or what?

August 7, 2012  08:33 AM ET

What a circus. Lynn goes undrafted, but because his father is a coach on the Jets they give him a contract to pick up a few bucks before he hits the street for a job.
OK Rex, if you got the cohones, then you cut him today. At least your second best receiver , Cromartie, did not get hurt in the non melee.

Already. I thought the toesucker could hold it togather until at least the 3rd or 4th game.

August 7, 2012  08:50 AM ET

Don't these happen in EVERY training camp for every team?

Anyway, the downward spiral of the Jets is amusing to watch, from a safe distance. Not even the fans are safe there.

This just in. Tim Tebow did not nothing about it.

Sorry. Tebow became reflective on why he would get angry.

He prayed for everyone on the sidelines. After that, he's fresh out of ideas.

This train wreck is going to be so much fun to watch.

He threw a football at them to stop it, but hit a fan in the 6th row.
