Call him Coach Roast.

Terrance Knighton, the 6-foot-3, 355-pound defensive tackle better known as “Pot Roast,” told ESPN on Wednesday that he will retire from the NFL to pursue a career in coaching.

Knighton spent two of his eight pro seasons with the Broncos (2013-14) following four seasons with the Jaguars. When Jack Del Rio left Jacksonville for Denver to be the Broncos’ defensive coordinator, Knighton followed as a free agent and anchored the line in Del Rio’s 4-3 system.

In two years in Denver, Knighton recorded 61 total tackles (25 solo) and five sacks, helped Denver to a pair of AFC West titles and a Super Bowl XLVIII appearance.

The ensuing offseason, Broncos general manager John Elway spent big to improve the defense, welcoming pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware, safety T.J. Ward and cornerback Aqib Talib.

Ware’s arrival was one he couldn’t forget.

“When I first got here, Pot Roast, he was like, ‘D-Ware, you gotta have No. 94,'” Ware recalled in a recent interview with The Denver Post. “I’m going to give you No. 94.’”

A year prior, Knighton helped convince linebacker Brandon Marshall that signing with the Broncos’ practice squad after he was released from the Jaguars would be a move he wouldn’t regret.

I loved his radio show when he was here. He is a good dude. I was always a little surprised that there was never really a market for his services. 800 lb run stuffers are a dime a dozen these days I guess.

Unless he's injured there's no way that you can convince me that an old ass Peko is better than him. I love the guy 3 years ago in Cincinnati but his Pro Football Focus numberswere horrid last year.

He strikes me as an old soul badass warrior. I'm happy CH Jr. sent him props on twitter.

That sack on Brady in the 2013 AFCCG will always be my top memory of him. Loved him on this team.
