i'm agreeing with you, i was just to lazy to quote the other poster who's post was farther up
I think this is the plan for Knighten, to soak up two blockers leaving the other guys in one-on-one situations. I don't think the Broncos view Knighten as a sack guy per say, but a guy who opposing offenses still have to game plan around in their blocking schemes.
