Terrance “Pot Roast” Knighton is reportedly retiring from the NFL after eight seasons to pursue a career in coaching, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Knighton technically played in just seven seasons. Last year, he signed with the New England Patriots but was released before the season began. Before that, he spent one year with the Washington Redskins, two with the Denver Broncos (helping them win Super Bowl XLVIII) and four with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team that drafted him.

Originally a third-round pick out of Temple, Knighton appeared in 108 games, starting 96 of them over the course of his career. He finishes his career with 245 total tackles, 14 sacks, two interceptions, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
