The Denver Broncos have signed two players today, agreeing to terms with defensive linemen Domata Peko and Zach Kerr.
According to Mike Klis of 9sports, the Denver Broncos have signed defensive linemen Zach Kerr and Domata Peko to two-year deals.
The addition of the two players comes in the wake of Sylvester Williams departure to sign with the Titans and both players offer up some depth on the defensive line.
Kerr joins the Broncos after spending the previous three seasons with the Colts. He signed with Indianapolis as an undrafted free agent following the 2014 NFL draft and played 36 games with the franchise, starting in 8 of them. He has recorded 5.5 sacks and 38 solo tackles in his career so far.
While Kerr may not have much experience starting, his incoming counterpart has almost unparalleled experience as a starting defensive lineman in the NFL.
Domata Peko has started in 158 games throughout the course of his 11 year professional career — all with the Cincinnati Bengals.

He has recorded 265 solo tackles and 18.5 sacks since being selected in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL draft, however, failed to get a single sack last season.
Peko projects to be the Broncos’ starting nose tackle now that Sylvester Williams is no longer in town. While he is less explosive than Williams, Peko will offer the Broncos a bigger body on the inside that will hinder the opposition’s run game.
GM John Elway and his staff have gone big this free agency period so far. Not big as in signing the ‘big name’ free agents. Rather, they have signed four players that weigh over 300lbs — two on the offensive line and now, two on the defensive line.
This should be a much welcomed move for Broncos fans, as Elway looks to fix many issues that plagued the team last season.
The Broncos are far from done making moves in free agency, let’s see where Elway goes next.
