Reports: Redskins expected to sign DT Terrance Knighton
Friday March 13th, 2015

The Washington Redskins are expected to sign defensive tackle Terrance Knighton to a one-year, $4 million deal, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. 

Knighton became a free agent on Tuesday after spending two seasons with the Denver Broncos.

Last month, he said he wanted to stay in Denver and would be willing to take "somewhat of a hometown discount" to do so. He also said the longer Broncos management waited to negotiate with him, "the worse it is going to be."

The 28-year-old recorded 33 total tackles and two sacks​ in 2014. He spent the first four years of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

On Tuesday, Washington signed defensive tackle Stephen Paea to a four-year deal.
