Could Oakland be the next chapter?
Speaking on Sirius XM on Wednesday, Knighton was more than uncertain about his future in Denver. After two seasons with the Broncos, he hasn't gotten any indication that there will be a third.
"I haven't gotten the feeling from the Broncos that I will be back. I'm looking forward on being a Bronco or a fresh start," Knighton said.
Adding Knighton to an already formidable Raiders defensive line would be a shrewd move for Del Rio, who could use some more strength against the run. Though Knighton might not fit in the defense as presently constructed, Del Rio shifted fronts enough to be able to feature the right players.
Having a pocket-moving presence like that with Sio Moore and Khalil Mack on the outside would be something certainly worth considering.
It sounds like Knighton already has.
