The Broncos agreed to terms on a two-year deal with former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton on Wednesday, the team announced. The Broncos later tweeted a photo of Knighton signing his contract.
Knighton will team inside with Kevin Vickerson in Denver's 4-3 defense.
Knighton was uneven during his four seasons with the Jaguars, but he grades out adequately against the run. It marks another aggressive move by the Broncos, who also signed offensive guard Louis Vasquez away from the San Diego Chargers and shifted the balance of power in the AFC by luring wide receiver Wes Welker from the New England Patriots.
