The Patriots beat out the Redskins for Knighton. It's a one-year, $4.5 million deal for Knighton.
This is Knighton's fourth NFL team. He was a third round pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2009, and played four years for them. He spent two seasons with the Denver Broncos before joining Washington Redskins for last season.
Knighton is listed at 6-foot-3, 355-pounds. A true nose guard, he'll be tasked with stopping the run.Back to the New England Patriots Newsfeed
