In my opinion, squats would be your best exercise as they are non-impact when done correctly, and hopefully the strengthening will help your knee pain.
Some of the top power lifters are ex-football players who ruined their knees playing football. The squats help stabilize the knees but whether the weight bearing will help heal the interior of the knee is debatable.
