When newly signed defensive tackle Terrance Knighton laces up his cleats for the first time in Denver, he’ll be playing with all new teammates in a brand new city.
One familiarity will be his coach, Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio.
Knighton played the first four years of his career with Jacksonville, the first three of which were led by Del Rio, who was the team’s head coach.
“Del Rio is a great guy to work with,” Knighton said. “He knows what type of player I am, what type of system and what type of style I’ll excel in. I’m just ready to get going and meet the guys and be around them.”
