Peko is a nine year veteran who has played eight complete seasons, missing just 5 games back in 2009. The Michigan State product still has plenty left in the tank, coming of a season where he started all 16 games, while tallying 52 tackles and three sacks along the way.

2013 was the fourth consecutive season that Domata Peko started every game. His durability, consistency, and ability to maintain focus are qualities that every NFL team values. For the Bengals, securing their long-time defensive tackle means the team is one step closer to keeping the core of their defense for years come.
