If Domata Peko is too old, how about his younger brother Kyle? Kyle Peko is an interesting player, as he skipped out on the 2020 season due to COVID-19, and is still relatively young at 28-years-old. Well, he’s 27 right now, but will turn 28 by the time the season starts. So, he’s 28.
The 2016 undrafted free agent is nearly as good as his brother, at least on paper. Perhaps the right defensive coaches can unlock his potential. He’s missed two full seasons for different reasons, and if he can stay healthy, maybe the younger Peko could contribute and be an unexpected piece to the puzzle.
Not every guy the Browns are going to look at is going to be former Pro Bowlers or All-Pro guys, so why not give Peko a look? He comes from a good football lineage and could absolutely showcase a refined skill-set this late in his career. If it was possible for Cameron Wake, it’s possible for Peko.
The Browns have made signings like this in the past with Andrew Berry in charge, and even before then, with names like Elijah Lee and Malcolm Smith coming to mind. So give Peko a chance and see what he can do on a team designed to win.
Heck, sign both Kyle and Domata. Why not? What’s the worst that can happen? They get some money and get cut before the start of the year? Not such a bad thing.
