No hold out coming for 'Pot Roast'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton plans to honor his contract and not hold out heading into the final year of his deal worth $2.5 million. His agent believes his client could fetch closer to $10 million if he were a free agent. 

"I'm definitely going to honor the contract," Knighton told the Denver Post. "I want to get something done and I'd like to get something done here. I don't want to bounce around. But I'm at the point now where once the season starts, I'm just strictly football."

by Larry Hartstein |

Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton believes he outperformed his contract in 2013 and wants a new deal, reports Broncos reporter Brandon Krisztal. Knighton, who signed a two-year, $4.5 million contract last offseason, helped Denver improve its run defense dramatically.

The 27-year-old finished with 31 tackles, three sacks, an interception, a fumble recovery and a pass breakup.

Marshawn Lynch, meet Terrance Knighton
by Larry Hartstein |

Defensive tackle Terrance Knighton gives the Broncos a shot at slowing down Seattle's Marshawn Lynch in the Super Bowl. The 6-3, 335-pound Knighton is the biggest reason why opponents averaged 2.84 yards per carry running straight up the middle, lowest in the NFL.

Knighton, who dominated the AFC Championship Game, leads a run defense that's allowed 87, 64, 65 and 64 yards rushing in its past four contests.

"He can do it all," defensive end Robert Ayers said of Knighton, per "He can rush. He's a big guy. He can stop the run. He brings a lot to the table -- he brings leadership and he commands double team on the run."

Broncos DST stuffs the run
by Larry Hartstein |

The Patriots entered the AFC Championship Game with a dominant running game, but the Broncos DST stuffed them cold. Denver allowed 11 rushing yards in the first half, 64 in all. The Broncos held LeGarrette Blount to 6 yards on five carries.

Denver also got decent pressure on Tom Brady, with defensive tackle Terrance Knighton and defensive end Robert Ayers recording sacks. The Broncos did not force a turnover.

After giving up 16 points and 320 total yards in the victory, the Broncos DST will prepare for the Seahawks or 49ers in Super Bowl XLVIII.
