Report: Bengals give Domata Peko a two-year extension

The Bengals might be moving too slowly for some tastes on other contract fronts, but they’re working to keep their strength strong.

According to Geoff Hobson of the team’s official website, the Bengals have reached a two-year contract extension with defensive tackle Domata Peko.

That will keep Peko under contract through 2016, as he was entering the final year of his deal, at $3.965 million.

A solid run-stopper, he doesn’t make that many plays on his own, but helps create space for teammate Geno Atkins to create pressure up the middle.

While it’s not a deal for a high-profile quarterback or wide receiver, it’s the kind of move the Bengals need to make to make sure they stay competitive while they work on the other side of the ball.

    Good signing of an underrated, high character, hard working veteran.

    I haven’t seen hair on a player like that since Dan Sasa.

    Thought it read they gave him two hair extensions :D.

    In all seriousness, that D roughed up the Pats good last year. Got respect for what they can do.

    Workhorse, Leader and Clogs the holes.

    Coach Z should get him. He knows him. Vikings. Skol. Best ever.

    The guy is a class act. Great to kep him on.
    He will have a tough time hanging on to that starting spot though – there are two young guys who will be nipping at his heals.

    That’s why Mike Brown is a clown. Re-signs mediocre players and head coaches, while taking a chance on losing his best player. (AJ Green)

    He’s happy – he enjoys the long off-season the bengals can guarantee him.

    Nice contract. They still need a QB though.

    CLASS ACT!!! Great move. Our Veteran D Leader. Glad he was extended.

    Now lock up AJ for ohhh 6 years..

  14. Nofoolnodrool says: Mar 26, 2014 4:00 PM

    Not counting preseason can he go 17 games?

    Between his salary and worthless Robert Geathers they could have e extended Michael Johnson instead of letting him walk. Just saying, now the bandwagoners can down vote me.

    This guy was great at Michigan State, returning a fumble for a TD all the way down the field against Michigan.

    nice signing – great teammate- wide body clogs the middle

    Bengals are clueless. Focus on AJ Green!
