  • Peko Extended

    5 year, $29.3M contract extension, a base salary of $5.86M per year.

    Big money. However, with the way things work he would've ended up getting more on the open market and like all deals, eventually the deal looks like small money with the next batch of signings.

    We needed him to stick around.

    One of the guys we definitely needed to keep around here. He could do big things.

      He's a great example of what good character is. Is he a top 10 DT in the league ?? No, but he's young and better than average. Place another big body next to him worth a sh*t and have some DE's that can apply pressure to the opposing QB, and we will be onto something !!!

        He's not a top 10 DT yet, he's still young and has some upside. I'm more comfortable giving him that type of money than any of our DL.

          Its better that we sign him now rather than waiting for the big year he explodes and then leaves because we cant afford him! Im glad we have a nice extension with him now!

            Well, this is exactly the kind of thing the Bengals usually don't do and I for one am really pleased with seeing the team lock him up at a good price. If they only could have done that with Steinbach...

              I still cringe at the fact that we lost Steinbach. As far as Peko goes, I'm just glad I'll be seeing his hair for another 5 years ;)

                I know off topic, but getting rid of Steinbach and extending Big Willie was quite possibly the biggest mistake the Bengals have made recently.

                I agree with liking seeing Peko stick around for a while !!!

                  Steinbach was good but I think we are overrating him a bit. I really think Andrew Whitworth can be a very similar type player and he's the next guy we need to lock up long term along with Andrews.

                    Steinbach is still a guard... Guards are very replaceable.

                      Guard is the easiest position to replace in football. Thats why alot of teams let their guards go when they want to much money.

                        I think what hurt us more that Steiny leaving was Braham retiring. Happened really close together and thats what hurt us more. A truly great center is hard to come by. Especially one who was as good at man-on blocking and calling out blitzes/coverages/slants as Braham. He was very underrated IMO.
                        Thats where I wonder about Guycheck. His blocking is average at best. But it seems his ability to read the Defense is subpar too.

                        Anyways, glad to see Peko get his chedda. He has the potential to be what so many other DTs who have come through Cincy have failed to be.
                        Big Daddy Wilkinson, Tony Williams, JT and so on. Then the almosts: Gardner, Rogers, Robertson and so on.

                          Ghiaciuc is a very different center than Braham though. He's a more athletic upfield blocker who needs to work on his strength at the point. I pay a lot of attention to him because I also play Center. I really think he can do it but he really needs to hit the weights. Another thing is that his side to side quickness is not as good as one would think with his type of athleticism.

                            But is that the kind of center we need? (The athletic up field type.)
                            We are more of a bruising running team with less finesse and a passing team.
                            Guycheck would be better in a system like Denver's zone running scheme.

                              Well I think he works because we run a lot of different types of schemes from power to zone and all across the spectrum. The only time he really gets abused IMO is when he doesn't seem to communicate the scheme right or he steps wrong. I think we are placing a lot of the blame on him when it wasn't rly his fault from a physical standpoint most of the time. Plus, with all the different groups we had in there its hard to develop a chemistry.
