Jets running back Joe McKnight is not worried about the team bringing in competition at his position.

The Jets added Chris Ivory and Mike Goodson this offseason to compete with McKnight and Bilal Powell for carries. McKnight, however, said he is confident he’s sticking around.

“Whoever they bring in, I don’t care,” McKnight said. “You understand that? I don’t care who they bring in. They’ll have to kill me to take my spot.”

McKnight sounds angry, though he says he’s not angry at the Jets, but at doubters who believe he won’t make the team.

“I’m not angry at all,” he said. “I’m just tired of people writing or running their mouths talking about I’m not going to be here. I’m going to prove it to them that I’ll be here.”

* Quinton Coples got the message.

Coach Rex Ryan sent a shot in the second-year player’s direction last week when he criticized Coples’ work in the weight room.

“It was a wakeup call, but it was cool,’’ Coples said Thursday. “I got better. That was the most important part.’’

Coples, who is moving to outside linebacker, said it was the first time he had ever been called out by a coach like that. He said Ryan was referring to one drill in particular and Coples understood Ryan’s point.

“Do I agree with him? I agree with him,’’ Coples said.
