Domata Peko says he left Cincinnati for better chance at championship


Domata Peko says the desire to win a Super Bowl was among his motivations for leaving the Cincinnati Bengals to sign with the Denver Broncos earlier this year.

“In Cincy, we were kind of always talking about, ‘Oh, I want to win a playoff game. I want to win a playoff game,’” Peko told the Broncos’ team website. “But over here, we’re talking about winning championships. That’s what brought me here. I want to win a championship.”

Both teams missed the playoffs last year, but the Broncos are of course just one year removed from going all the way.

Earlier this year, we looked at the case for the Bengals being closer to contending or needing to rebuild with the conclusion it is the former, but since then they suffered a couple of key free agent defections.

Denver shored up a weakness by signing a pair of offensive linemen in free agency and drafting an offensive tackle in the first round.

The Bengals’ shaky offensive line likely got worse in the offseason, but the Broncos still might not have a quarterback, though.

Cincinnati has a Pro Bowler in Andy Dalton under center and used the draft primarily to add weapons for him.
