Knighton Gives Ware No. 94, For a Price

Posted May 29, 2014

Terrance Knighton gave some details Thursday on what it took for DeMarcus Ware to acquire the No. 94 jersey -- and it included reimbursing Knighton's mother.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Shortly after the Broncos signed defensive end DeMarcus Ware, defensive tackle Terrance Knighton was one of the first people to welcome the Pro Bowler to Denver.

But the conversation quickly turned to business.

Knighton wore No. 94 for the Broncos in 2013, but Ware had worn that number for all nine of his seasons in Dallas.

Ultimately Knighton switched to No. 98, leaving No. 94 for Ware.

"I have so much respect for the game and guys who have done it really good for a long time," Knighton explained Thursday.

But it wasn't exactly free.

"I texted him and said, 'You know, it's yours, but it's going to cost you,'" Knighton recalled with a smile.

So what did it cost?

"Just know it was a little bit more than other guys get just because I felt like I did a really good job in 94," he laughed. "They were probably going to start making jerseys and stuff, so I told him he'd have to pay for all that and reimburse my mom for the 20 jerseys she bought. It was a pretty penny."
