ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted just after 1 AM EST that the Denver Broncos and defensive tackle Terrance Knighton are close to agreeing on terms: Broncos close to an agreement with Jacksonville free-agent DT Terrance Knighton, who wants to reunite with Denver DC Jack Del Rio. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2013 Knighton landed in Denver Tuesday and may not leave without a contract. (Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Images) Knighton was drafted in 2009 by Broncos current defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio (and former head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars), who anointed him a team captain during that same year as a rookie. Following the final game of Knighton’s rookie season Del Rio said, “Terrance Knighton is going to be a real good player. It wasn’t an accident before the game that he was made a team captain for the game. I’m counting on him to lead the way.” Four seasons later, Del Rio is still counting on Knighton apparently. The former Temple University true Freshman weighed in for the 2012 season at 335 lbs. and measured 6’3″, he would add immediately to a Denver defensive line that is getting bigger by the day. The Broncos re-signed defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson on Tuesday the first day of Free Agency.
