BRONCOS AGREE TO TERMS WITH DT TERRANCE KNIGHTON

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — TheDenver Broncos on Wednesday agreed to terms with unrestricted free-agent defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced.

Knighton (6-3, 330 pounds) is a fifth-year player who started 50-of-61 regular-season games with Jacksonville and totaled 259 defensive stops (150 solo), 21 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks (48 yds.), one interception (-3 yds.), nine passes defensed and three forced fumbles.

Playing all 16 games in 2012 for the third time in his four professional seasons, Knighton ranked second on the Jaguars with 17 quarterback pressures and tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles.

He started the first 50 games of his career from 2009-12 while missing just one game due to injury during that span.

Selected by Jacksonville in the third round (72nd overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft, Knighton opened all 16 games during his first season and was named to the NFL All-Rookie Team by PFW/PFWA and Sporting News.

A four-year letterman at Temple University, he became the school’s first player to earn first-team All-Mid-American Conference honors following his senior season.

Knighton, who played tight end and defensive line at Windsor (Conn.) High School, was born on July 4, 1986, in Hartford, Conn.
