The 32-year-old Peko agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million deal with the Broncos in March, joining his cousin Kyle Peko on the team.

“I’m on Year 12, but I feel good. My body is feeling great,” Peko said. “God has been keeping me strong and keeping me healthy, but I still have that hunger. I want to get a ring. I want to win a championship. That’s what keeps me going. Also, my family, I’m playing for my children and for my wife. Those are motivations for me.

“I think that’s what keeps me young and alive. I think you see guys when they get a little older, they start losing their love for the game. But, for me, I still love the waking up in the morning and coming out here to hit O-linemen and hitting running backs. That’s fun to me. I love that stuff.”

In last week’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, Peko picked up a tackle, giving him three on the season.
