Broncos signed NT Domata Peko, formerly of the Bengals, to a two-year, $7.5 million contract.

The Broncos also inked ex-Colts DT Zach Kerr to a two-year contract. A Bengal his entire 11-year career, Peko's snaps have gradually declined, along with his effectiveness. Peko is a gigantic body in the middle, but he's a replacement-level talent at this point. He will be a rotational run stuffer in Denver.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson reports the Vikings have reached out to free agent DT Domata Peko.

According to Tomasson, the Bengals, Eagles, and 49ers are also in the mix. Peko played for Vikings coach Mike Zimmer in Cincinnati and is a logical fit as a depth piece in Minnesota, though his game has fallen off in recent years. Peko turns 33 this year and won't cost much on a short-term deal.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner admits Bengals DT Domata Peko is a candidate for release.

Peko, 30, carries a $3.7 million cap hit for 2015, and the Bengals can recoup all of that without a dead-money charge by releasing him. We know the Bengals scouts read Rotoworld as we saw on Hard Knocks a couple years back. Peko has been one of the least-effective defensive tackles in the league the past few seasons, per PFF. He was a major part of the Bengals' troublesome run defense.

Bengals signed NT Domata Peko to a two-year, $9 million extension through 2016.

Peko was entering the final year of his contract and scheduled to earn a $4.125 million base salary. He's now signed through his age-32 season, while three-technique stud Geno Atkins is under contract through 2018. Peko has missed just five games in eight seasons and hasn't missed a start in four years. He's a solid bet for 50-plus tackles and a couple sacks per season.

Bengals DT Domata Peko triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $3.7 million to $3.9 million.

Peko's 2014 base salary also gets an uptick, going from $3.925 million to $3.965 million. The 28-year-old recorded 53 tackles and two sacks in 2012, but his main job is to just eat up blockers to free up his teammates -- like the man lining up next to him, Geno Atkins. Peko has two years left on his current deal.

Whitworth, the club's player rep the past few seasons, has emerged as one of the best blindside tackles in the NFL.
