Prediction: Chicago Bears
There are few players who provide more entertainment to football diehards than Terrance Knighton. As a nose tackle, his “highlight” plays are far different than the flashier material provided by skill position players or sack artists, but Knighton uses his 335-pound frame to simply eat blocks on a play-by-play basis, and that is insanely valuable.
The Bears are in need of a 3-4 nose tackle under their new regime, and with former Denver head coach John Fox on board in Chicago, this appears to be an ideal fit. Knighton ranked as a top-10 player in the league against the run a year ago, and the team from the Windy City can use all the help it can get in slowing down the opposition on the ground.
Knighton has a line of suitors that reportedly includes the Colts and Raiders, but his former head coach looks to be the front-runner to continue as his head coach.
