Domata Peko will officially be an unrestricted free agent.

There have been contradicting reports throughout the week regarding the 13-year NFL veteran’s future in the Mile High City, but according to Mike Klis, the Denver Broncos do not plan on re-signing the 34-year-old defensive tackle.

Peko has spent the last two seasons in Denver, after spending the first 11 seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals. In two years with the Broncos, Peko made 30 starts and recorded 69 combined tackles.

While Peko technically could return to the Broncos on a value contract, it does not seem likely at this point in time.

The Broncos front office will now likely turn their attention to Shelby Harris.¬†Harris, 27, is coming off of a career year, and was Denver’s best defender last season according to Pro Football Focus.
