Terrance Knighton: Released by Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Knighton was released by the Patriots on Monday, Phil Perry of CSNNE.com reports.

Knighton, who signed a one-year deal with Patriots back in March, had a tough time finding reps this preseason, as he failed to take the field against the Panthers on Friday. The veteran defensive tackle did play with the first-team at points during training camp, but he's since found himself on the outside looking in behind the likes of Malcom Brown, Alan Branch, and Markus Kuhn. Knighton could attract offers from other teams who are looking to shore up their defensive line before the season begins.

Patriots' Terrance Knighton: Signs one-year contract with Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Patriots and Knighton agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million contract Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Although New England and his previous employer, Washington, were in the mix for his services, Knighton settled on the former, with whom he should settle into a starting role next to Malcom Brown. Contained to 35 percent of the defensive snaps last season, Knighton matched his career low with 29 tackles in 15 games. A similar usage can be expected in the upcoming campaign, but could increase if he avoids weight and endurance concerns, as Mike Jones of the Washington Post reported Knighton dealt with in 2015.

Terrance Knighton: Visiting with Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Knighton will visit with the Patriots on Monday, NFL.com reports.

Knighton's visit with New England comes after fellow defensive tackle Nick Fairley opted to sign with the Saints instead of the Patriots. Still, Knighton represents a more than capable alternative. The veteran excels at clogging running lanes, and finished last season with 29 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 15 games played.

Redskins' Terrance Knighton: Not expected back in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Knighton has been informed that he won't be re-signed by the Redskins this offseason, The Washington Post reports.

Knighton signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Redskins last offseason, finishing the 2015 campaign with 29 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 15 games played. Despite those contributions, Knighton will not be retained by the Redskins, allowing the affectionately-nicknamed "Pot Roast" to focus on engaging interested parties ahead of signing elsewhere this offseason.

Redskins' Terrance Knighton: Set to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Terrance Knighton (head) is active Sunday at Carolina.

Knighton was able to log a limited practice Friday, and that was enough to warrant an active status Sunday, despite seeing a migraine specialist earlier in the week. His presence will certainly be welcome against a run-heavy Carolina offensive unit.
