Cardinals' Domata Peko: Officially inks deal
Peko signed a contract with the Cardinals on Monday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
The veteran defensive tackle, who turns 36 later this week, will be reunited with defensive coordinator Vance Joseph, who he worked with in both Cincinnati and Denver previously in his career. Corey Peters (knee) was recently lost for the season, so adding Peko gives Arizona some much-needed depth along the interior of their defensive line.... See More ... See Less

Ravens' Domata Peko: Finally secures contract
Peko signed a contract, which will pay $1 million for the remainder of the season, with the Ravens on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The Broncos allowed Peko to walk into free agency following a 2018 season in which he recorded 31 tackles, 0.5 sacks and two pass breakups over 16 games. Peko will turn 35 years old Nov. 27, and he'll add veteran depth as the Ravens make a championship push, since Daylon Mack (knee) was placed on injured reserve and Michael Pierce (ankle) is day-to-day. Justin Ellis signed with the team as well, so Peko will have competition for reps regardless of the injury situation.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Domata Peko: Headed for free agency
The Broncos will let Peko head to free agency, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

At the very least, Peko's durability, with him having played 16 games in all but two seasons, shouldn't be a concern for teams interested in his services.... See More ... See Less
