RT @MikeGarafolo: That deal the Jags gave DT Roy Miller is $16.25 million over four years. Would've been a free agent in March.— Terrance Knighton (@MrKnighton2u) December 16, 2014
Denver Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton is in the final year of a two-year deal and will become an Unrestricted Free Agent in 2015. He is one of many Broncos players that will hit the market this upcoming offseason.
Pot Roast has said recently that Denver is the place he wants to be, and if the front office is "in the ballpark," he'll remain a Bronco.
As a Bronco, Terrance has started every game logging a total of 6 sacks and 52 tackles (postseason included). Though he has shown the ability to rush the passer, he is used mainly in the Broncos base defense to combat the opponents' running game. With him clogging the middle, the Denver Broncos are ranked 2nd in the NFL against the run allowing 71.6 yards per game.
On the season, Terrance has played about 47.3% of the defensive snaps (53.6% last season). He is ranked 9th overall among defensive tackles with an overall grade of +18.4 according to pro football focus.
Here is a current list of tackles among 4-3 defensive tackles (courtesy of over the cap.com):
If Mr. Knighton's neighborhood is the 4-5 million per season range, the Broncos would be foolish not to resign. Pot Roast has become a fiery and outspoken leader of this team and one that backs up his talk with his play. After leaving a rocky situation in Jacksonville, Knighton has become the type of professional younger players should aspire to be.
