Johnny Knox Biography
Johnny Knox was born November 3, 1986 in Houston, Texas and is an American football wide receiver for the Chicago Bears. He was selected by the Bears as the 140th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, through a draft pick they acquired in the Kyle Orton-Jay Cutler trade.
Knox, who joined that Chicago Bears drafted as an unheralded fifth-round draft choice, made an immediate impact on the team as a rookie. Though Knox only spent two seasons playing for a senior college, his combine numbers, which display his remarkable speed and agility, proved him to be a steal as a fifth round choice.
He caught his first NFL pass, a 68-yard reception, on September 13, 2009 against the Green Bay Packers. During the 2nd game of the 2009 season (against the Pittsburgh Steelers), Knox recorded his first NFL touchdown catch on a key 3rd down to tie the game up 14-14. He recorded another touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks, a 7 yard reception. In the fourth game of the season, against the Detroit Lions, he scored a touchdown on a 102-yard kickoff return. Two weeks later, after a bye week, Knox caught a 23 yard touchdown catch from Jay Cutler.
On November 29, 2009, Johnny Knox returned a kickoff 77 yards to set up a Bears field goal versus the Vikings.
Against the Vikings, December 28, 2009, Knox sustained a season-ending ankle injury, finishing the year with 45 receptions for 527 yards and 5 touchdowns.
On January 25, 2010, Knox was nominated to the NFC roster for the 2010 Pro Bowl, replacing Minnesota's Percy Harvin, who withdrew due to injury concerns. Knox returned 4 kicks for 103 yards in his Pro Bowl debut. He was also targeted on two passes as a Wide Receiver, but failed to log a reception.
