Free agent defensive tackle Terrance Knighton is drawing interest from the Patriots, Seahawks, and Ravens, according to Troy E. Renck of The Denver Post. Knighton is also visiting with Washington today.
The Raiders appeared to be nearing a deal with Pot Roast, but on Tuesday he reached out to ESPN.com’s Josina Anderson to let everyone know that he won’t be joining up with Oakland or returning to Denver.
When Luke Adams listed PFR’s top 50 free agents recently, he ranked Pot Roast 16th on our list. The six-year veteran was an integral part of a Broncos team that had the league’s second-best run defense in 2014, and Pro Football Focus (subscription required) rated Knighton 12th among 81 qualifying D-tackles last season. Knighton, 29 in July, recorded 33 total tackles with two sacks and three pass deflections last season.
