Broncos Sign DTs Domata Peko & Zach Kerr To Two-Year Deals

Mike Klis of 9 News reports that the Broncos have agreed to terms on two-year deals with defensive tackles Domata Peko and Zach Kerr.

  • According to Klis, Peko receives a two-year, $7.5 million contract with $3.8 million guaranteed.
  • Stephen Holder reports that Kerr also drew interest from the Lions and 49ers.

The Vikings, 49ers, Eagles and Bengals all came up as potential landings spots for Peko this week, but the Broncos were clearly in the market for value options at defensive tackle.

Peko, 32, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2006. He has played his entire 11-year NFL career with the Bengals and was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

In 2016, Peko appeared in all 16 games for the Bengals and recorded 37 tackles, no sacks, a fumble recovery and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 106 interior defender out of 127 qualifying players.

Kerr, 26, wound up signing on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware back in 2014. He managed to make the 53-man roster in all three of seasons with the Colts.

However, Indianapolis declined to tender him a restricted offer, which allowed him to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

In 2016, Kerr appeared in 12 games and recorded 19 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery.
