Domata Peko DL CIN 9 Months
Bengals signed NT Domata Peko to a two-year contract 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.
