Denver Broncos Add Terrance Knighton to 2013 Free Agent Class

The Denver Broncos big splash on Wednesday came when they were able to steal free agent wide receiver Wes Welker from the New England Patriots by locking him up to a two-year, $12 million contract. Now, as the dust is settling from the Welker move, the Broncos have made another signing that could prove to be a very under-the-radar, but incredibly successful move.

John Elway was once again busy breaking the news (man, you have to love Twitter):

Hopefully for the Broncos, Del Rio will be able to keep Knighton motivated.

Knighton was a third-round pick for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2009 and was named to the NFL’s All-Rookie Team. At just 26-years-old, he has a lot of talent and untapped potential. This could turn out to be another great move by the Broncos.
