Terrance 'Pot Roast' Knighton joins the Patriots' defensive line rotation


Recommended Posts

I've always liked Pot Roast.  Very good run stuffer and that has always stumped me as to why the Colts keep passing on him.  New England will make good use of the guy as their Ted Washington.

He was apparently not very good last year in Washington

 

I don't think that is true. Washington wanted to sign him back, he just chose New England.

He's still a solid run defender. No pass rush.

I see.  I was just going off what I read.  I didn't watch him play very closely last year, so I don't know

I just remember 2 years back on Denver in afc champ game he literally tosses center aside and slammed Brady to ground for sack, so has capabilities, Broncos though always wanted him to slim down , ` 1 reason they let him go besides $ he was demanding , also he didnt play as many snaps as a starter as 1 would of thought due to need too stay fresh

 

Pats have right idea , as a rotation he will be a good addition

A good addition. Im surprised it took him this long to sign. 

I am too.  Twice he's been a free agent..and twice.....it took a LONG time to sign..

..both times he ended up with a one-year 'prove it' deal...

 

He was very good for Denver....why don't lots of teams want him

A nose tackle doesn't have to be a great pass rusher. 

 

They do if they want the huge payday that pot roast has reportedly been looking for the past 2 years

he wanted to play for a contender, not the redskins who just tagged "you like that!" kirk cousins to a cool 17 mil. Cant blame him for choosing the Pats, although he could have came here for 4.5 mil...but you know..Grigson

There is a reason he is playing on small 1 year contracts,   and it's not because he is good

he is better than anyone on our Dline, except Anderson, which is extremely unfortunate he got injured bad, one few good draft picks by Grigs

No he isn't.    You clearly didn't watch the skins last year

Yeah, I know Grigson will not waist money on this over rated player.

I like the signing, we will just have to wait and see if it pans out. 

Yep...low risk...high reward...he may not fill big Vince's shoes that got left behind but he is about the next best thing plugging up the middle so those LBs can come clean. He has never seem to be a bad influence or cause any problems so with a reasonable contract I see no reason this could hurt them.

Yes I agree and we do have some other depth at the interior that will help.  And agree he will likely not be able to do what Vince did if the Pats go with a 3-4 and he the nose tackle.  He might be helpful in the interior of a 4-3 set up.  Time will tell.

Pot Roast, Chris Long, and Marcellus Bennett...HC & GM Bill Belichick knows exactly what he's doing. 

 

I marvel every year how the grey hoodie replenishes his roster & still manages get the most out of the draft every year. It's a gift.
