NFL Rumors: Cincinnati Bengals, Domata Peko agree to extension

The Cincinnati Bengals have had a quiet offseason and it will probably be deemed by most as disappointing to say the least.

The problem is the Bengals have an excellent and deep roster, which means they must decide which players they value and what price and cut ties with more players than many other teams probably have to.

For one, the team has made re-signing quarterback Andy Dalton a priority.

The Bengals had another priority – re-signing defensive tackle Domata Peko.

According to Geoff Hobson of, the Bengals have agreed to re-sign Peko to a two-year extension.


Peko is one of the most p0pular Bengals ever.

“Domata has really embraced playing for the Bengals and the Bengals like him,” said Craig Domann, Peko’s agent. “He really likes Cincinnati, he’s a mentor, he likes the guys on the team, he’s got a great relationship with the fan base, and on top of it he’s been a very productive guy.”

Peko was selected by the Bengals with the 123rd overall pick of the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft and has never played for any other team.

Last season, Peko had 52 tackles and 3.0 sacks.
