During his time with the Denver Broncos, Terrance Knighton has been known by many monikers; Pot Roast, teammate, and captain. He is a fan favorite, a voice in the locker room and occasionally outspoken on Twitter. Now he can add a new title to his biography, Good Guy.
Today the Broncos have named Knighton the recipient of the Darrent Williams Good Guy award. Knighton will be the eighth recipient of the award since it's creation and will be presented with it on Friday.
The award was created in memory of former Broncos cornerback, Darrent Williams, who passed away on Jan. 1, 2007, after completing his second season with the team. The award is given annually to the Bronco who best exemplifies Williams’ enthusiasm, cooperation and honesty while dealing with members of the press.
If there is a member that exemplifies the above traits on the 2014 Denver Broncos, it is the outspoken and very likeable Terrance Knighton as a team captain and a fan favorite.
The winner of the award is selected by the local media. Jeff Legwold of ESPN Denver will present the award to Knighton on Friday on behalf of the Denver chapter of the Pro Football Writers of America.
The seven previous recipients of the Darrent Williams Good Guy Award are Chris Harris Jr. (2013), Wesley Woodyard (2012), Champ Bailey (2011), Mario Haggan (2010), Elvis Dumervil (2009), Ebenezer Ekuban (2008) and John Lynch (2007).
