Together with his family, the former Bengals and Broncos newcomer is spending time in sunny Southern California and he would not mind heading back on a more permanent basis.
“I’d really like to play here in L.A.,” explained Peko, who started 16 games for the Broncos in 2018 with 31 tackles tallied. “I’m about L.A., grew up in Whittier. So, dude, if the Rams come calling or the Chargers, I would love to do that.”
Before he had been selected from the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft from Michigan State, Peko last played football in California in his junior school days when he played with at College of the Canyons, which has produced the likes of pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul and receiver Marquise”Hollywood” Brown.
Asked whether he would prefer lining up alongside Rams all-world defensive tackle Aaron Donald or Chargers pass-rushing standout Joey Bosa, Peko did not hesitate to decide on the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
“I would like to be with Aaron Donald,” said Peko, who spent the first 11 seasons of his career in Cincinnati. “That would be dope.”
Locking on a sales pitch, he had a message for Donald’s head coach, Sean McVay.
“Coach McVay, your boy Domata Peko here ready to proceed, and I would really like to come out here and represent L.A. and attempt to pursue that championship,” Peko said.
The 6-foot-3, 325-pound Peko could nevertheless supply a run stuffer in the middle and a seasoned starting presence to any defensive lineup.
Judging by his comments, the Lions are likely his top suitor, but putting a big-bodied veteran alongside Aaron Donald worked for the Rams last year, so who knows?
