In addition to signing Wes Welker and linebacker Stewart Bradley on Wednesday, the Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with defensive tackle Terrance Knighton.

Knighton is a four-year veteran who will be reunited with defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio. He started 50-of-61 regular season games for the Jaguars and totaled 259 defensive stops, 21 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks, one interceptions, and three forced fumbles.

Knighton ranked second on the Jaguars with 17 quarterback pressures and tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles in 2012.

He was taken in the third round of the 2009 draft out of Temple University and was named to the NFL All-Rookie Team by PFW/PFWA and Sporting News.

Knighton will accompany Kevin Vickerson on the defensive line to build a 665-pound wall to block the gaps.
