Terrance 'Pot Roast' Knighton joins the Patriots' defensive line rotation
The defensive tackle is the Patriots' most-recent addition via free agency.
The man known as Pot Roast might not understand why he keeps bouncing around the league, but free agency worked out pretty well for him this time around. Thursday, Terrance Knighton reportedly landed with the New England Patriots.
Knighton also provided his own kind of confirmation.
A year ago, Knighton failed to land a long-term deal with the Broncos, so he jumped ship to the Redskins. Upon arrival, he declared himself "the biggest steal" of free agency, per Sports Illustrated. Knighton, a run-stuffing nose tackle, played well last season, but didn't cash in with a long-term contract -- something that confuses him.
Knighton won't pile up the sacks for the Patriots (he has 14 since 2009), but he'll be an important contributor in the middle of the trenches. As ESPN's Mike Reiss pointed out, the Patriots prefer to utilize a defensive tackle rotation, which should keep the 354-pound lineman fresh.
